  1. Former NY Gov. Mario Cuomo Dies at 82

    One of the most eloquent orators in politics is gone. The three-term New York governor known for some of the most moving speeches of the 20th century died today, hours after his eldest son, Gov. Andrew Cuomo, was sworn into a second term. He personified the liberal wing of the Democratic Party, opposing Ronald Reagan’s view of America in a thrilling speech at the 1984 Democratic National Convention. But Cuomo may be most remembered for flirtations with a White House run that never came to be.
