RIP Mario Cuomo

He passed away of heart failure this week at the age of 82. The New York Times has a very fond tribute to him.

I always wanted him to run for president during the dark days of the Democratic Party (Carter, Mondale, Dukakis) but he never did. He died just hours after his son was sworn in for his second term as governor of New York.
