    Mario M. Cuomo, the three-term governor of New York who commanded the attention of the country with a compelling public presence, a forceful defense of liberalism and his exhaustive ruminations about whether to run for president, died at home in Manhattan on Thursday, according to a family friend. He was 82.

    Mr. Cuomo, the father of Andrew M. Cuomo, who hours earlier on Thursday was inaugurated for a second term as governor, led New York during a turbulent time, 1983 through 1994. His ambitions for an activist government were thwarted by economic recession. He found himself struggling with the State Legislature not over what the government should do but over what programs should be cut, and what taxes should be raised, simply to balance the budget.

    Still, no matter the problems he found in Albany, Mr. Cuomo burst beyond the state’s boundaries to personify the liberal wing of his national party and become a source of unending fascination and, ultimately, frustration for Democrats, whose leaders twice pressed him to run for president, in 1988 and 1992, to no avail.

    He was a really shitty governor.

    My brother worked at the same firm as him for a few years and supposedly he was a really nice, really interesting guy. Everyone there loved him. :dontknow:

    yup
    Andrew didn't have any fancy ceremony today. Heard this morning Mario wasn't doing well.

    Let the record show that Stern was no fan of Mario.

    Not a New Yorker

    so no real opinion of the dude as a governor

    but he did always seem like a nice enough fella when you'd see him on the tv
