    I’m a Republican, albeit a very moderate one. But I have always admired and respected Mario Cuomo, even when I didn’t agree with him. A great loss to his family and the world. Very few left of the generation who could cross party lines and engender genuine fondness and respect from those they disagreed with.
    And the speech at the ’94 convention will go down as one of the great speeches of all time.
