Cuomo is a horrible choice and I'd definitely work against him in the primary.  Gutting transit options on the proposed new Tappan Zee and cutting the MTA's payroll tax is absolutely inexcusable in my book.  He has simply no clue on infrastructure issues, so screw him.

I agree with you here. And the Queens Convention Center idea is simply beyond stupidity (I'm pretty sure that I entered my Cuomo/O'Malley vote before I read about the new budget, but it does make me more loathe to vote for him).

It's not going to happen, of course, but I'd actually be pretty pleased with a Joe Biden run: he gets it on infrastructure/energy/environment issues in a way that even many Dems don't.

Are you sure about that? Biden's always struck me as someone who would really like to be President. I don't think that he should run (he's strange, and he's from Delaware, after all), but I wouldn't be surprised if he did.

I'm a huge fan of O'Malley, Cuomo, Kaine, Hickenlooper, McCaskill, and Begich.  Kucinich does nothing for me.  Manchin lost my respect when he punted on repealing DADT.  So I would be very much undecided among those 6.

Hick or O'Malley, might consider Gillibrand and Schweitzer if they were available.

Based on what I know at this point, I'd probably lean toward O'Malley. I do think his history of tax increases will really hurt him in the 2016 election, however. If Clinton decides to run, I'd give her strong consideration.
