New York City has become a central battlefield in the fight over school choice and education reform since Bill de Blasio, an ally of the teachers unions and opponent of charter schools, became mayor in January. De Blasio decided early on in his administration to force out charter schools like Harlem Success Academy (founded by de Blasio's longtime political opponent Eva Moskowitz) from open space in public school buildings. The negative response was overwhelming, with even New York's Democratic governor Andrew Cuomo coming out forcefully against de Blasio's anti-charter schools move.

At the 1992 Democratic National Convention, the pro-life Democratic governor of Pennsylvania, Robert Casey, was barred from speaking. The message was if you are pro-life, you have no place in the Democratic party.
The new attitude of the Democratic party, at least as represented by New York’s Governor Andrew Cuomo, is if you are pro-life, you have no place in a blue state.

In late December 2012, congressional Republicans took enormous heat in the media for daring to reduce the size of the Hurricane Sandy aid package. New York governor Andrew Cuomo said the move was “insensitive at best.”
Cuomo later issued a joint statement with New Jersey governor Chris Christie, proclaiming that “the people of our states can no longer afford to wait while politicians in Washington play games.”

Maryland governor Martin O'Malley aligned himself with Hillary Clinton, in response to a question about the retiring secretary of state and possible 2016 Democratic presidential candidate in an interview.
“She’s great,” said O’Malley. “I think she’s an outstanding leader, and I think she could be a great president, if she chooses to do it.”
Forget O'Malley and Cuomo, could Colorado governor John Hickenlooper emerge as the Democratic presidential frontrunner in 2016? 4:59 PM, Jul 30, 2012 • By MARK HEMINGWAY
Now that—perish the thought—it looks increasingly possible that Barack Obama might lose in November, it's only natural that speculation about Democratic possibilities for 2016 is starting to ramp up. Yes, there's the obvious caveat that the Democratic nomination is probably Hillary Clinton's for the taking should she want it. But it's worth asking: Who else is on the Democratic bench?
Will it be Obama-Cuomo in 2012?11:12 AM, Jul 4, 2011 • By WILLIAM KRISTOL
Will President Obama replace Joe Biden as his running mate in 2012? I've always thought it’s a real possibility. Biden was perhaps useful in bringing experience to the ticket of challenger Obama in 2008, but he does nothing for incumbent Obama in 2012, whereas a fresher and younger face might add some zip and energy to the reelection effort.
