Listen to Mario Cuomo

Mario Cuomo was on Face the Nation last week and gave a great reminder to all Americans and especially Democrats of what the country needs now. In sum, he said America wants and needs, despite Senator Obama's rhetoric to the contary, everything we had in the years from 1993 -2000, to wit:
> a strenthened and growing middle class
> poverty shrinking; millions lifted out of poverty
> 22 million new jobs
> a balanced budget
> a projected surplus into the trillions
He also spoke of this year's primary season, saying the whole process has been unfair and actually butchered. He said it must be allowed to go to completion through all the remaining primaries and all the voters heard. Cuomo emphasized that by its own design, the process is supposed to go on right up to and into the convention.
Although I don't necessarily agree with him on Clinton and Obama running together in the GE, I applaud Mario Cuomo for reminding everyone of the good times we had in the 90s and for calling out those so eager to dump one of the candidates before the process is even over.
