    I love watching rich people being good humans but I wish the people who employed the rich people were showing the same sort of generosity.

    Cuomo is on fire against the federal Govt right now in a very measured and thoughtful way.

    yes devine. It has passed the senate. Now it needs to pass the House. Then it goes to the president's desk where he'll either sign it, or veto it.

    Hope you enjoyed the first day of 5th grade civics

    The only sane way forward in November is for him to become president, imo.

    there is no realistic way to know how many people have it or will get it at this point.

    The tests aren’t totally accurate, there aren’t enough tests to test everyone, and the testing authorities seem to feel it’s in their interest to under test and under report cases.

    Deaths are probably also going to be reported and marked inaccurate, but they will be closer to accurate than anything else.

    So we can observe the numerator directly. We have no hope to observe the denominator . In fact, statisticians and epidemiologists will be arguing over estimated denominators for the next century.

    It seems like people try to be smart and say “well we don’t know the rate and until we do we can’t make a real data driven decision” when it is pretty obvious that the rate won’t be a settled issue until years after this epidemic ends.

    I'm of the opinion Biden would put him on the ticket if he hadn't already tweeted out his VP will be a woman. Cuomo is probably the most popular person in America right now.

    I wouldn't be unhappy, but he is by no means a progressive warrior. He is a moderate and a pragmatist, but I agree he is a much better choice than Biden in that lane.

    choosing cuomo would be a homerun with the way he has been perceived throughout this crisis. Will be tough to wiggle out of the guarantee that his VP would be a woman though. I think he could get away with it because lying is not even frowned upon these days. Would cuomo take it? If trump wins, cuomo is in a good position to continue to criticize trump and put himself in a good spot to run in 2024. He’s old and white so He probably has a good chance.

    (not to derail thread, because I don't want to anger GFA).... Cuomo has looked great during this... but most NYers, especially the more liberal ones, really don't like him.

    cuomos a corrupt goon who is somewhat competent as an executive but also aligns himself with state republicans in NY to avoid passing any sensible legislation

    i get wanting a competent executive but lets take this discussion to the Dem primary thread if people still want to talk about imoiyamfwiw

    Didn’t know much about Warren before this thread, but judging from her tweets she would’ve been a legit alternative if not Sanders, no? Much better than Biden at least.
