That guy is facing a half dozen ethical and criminal investigations and might not make it all the way to the next inauguration.

    Paladino would fit right in.
    Nah, he should get a TV show like Spitzer, and skip the thrill of important office.

    Seriously though, I hate that we get so many of these creeps, not just running for office, but being elected. I understand the quest for political office and the power that goes with it excites people with big egos who think they can get away with anything. But we should be somewhat wise to that by now, and more selective.

    I completely understand that urge, but nothing about Cuomo screams intelligence either. The guy's been riding his father's coattails since the day he was born.

    Palladino is a low class thug.

    The real point is, though, Paladino is not leader material with an uncontrolled temper like this.
    But Cuomo is... with his failed policies and sleazy politics?

    I'd take the pissed off guy who wants to clean out the rot and rotten fish anyday.
    What a nation of PC pussies.

    But you are ok with the reporter stalking a 10 year old. Good to know.

    I don't care for either of them, but this thread isn't about Cuomo.

    The thing is, the people I think of as leaders don't have extramarital affairs and illigitimate kids, and don't threaten to kill other people out of anger.

    I certainly agree with the last one, but not so sure about the first two. Many good leaders have done one or both of the first two.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
