Cuomo, Paterson Engage in What We Assume Was an Awkward Hug


This morning, Andrew Cuomo gave an address to a gathering of state Democrats in Buffalo — a speech that, coincidentally, sounded a lot like something someone running for governor might deliver, hypothetically. Afterward, Cuomo ran across the man many expect him to oust, Governor Paterson, and the two hugged and briefly chatted. Before separating, Cuomo gave Paterson some final words of insincere encouragement. “Go get ‘em,” Cuomo told him, by which he meant, “Go continue doing exactly what you’ve been doing, please.” [NYP]
