Cuomo Says Close Democratic Race Could Be `Ruinous'
Mario Cuomo, former Democrat governor of New York, says that the protracted nastiness and deadlock between Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton for the presidential nomination could be a disaster for the Democrat Party.
Ex-Governor Cuomo Says Close Democratic Race Could Be `Ruinous'
By Lorraine Woellert
March 14 (Bloomberg) -- Former New York Governor Mario Cuomo said the presidential race between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama could be ``ruinous'' for the Democratic Party if the contest isn't resolved before the August nominating convention.
Cuomo, a Democrat, said the party may be able to avoid a damaging convention fight if Clinton and Obama teamed up on a party ticket, or if the media forced the candidates before then to substantively address big policy issues facing the nation, such as the economy and the war in Iraq.
``It would be ruinous to the Democrats to get to the convention without an arrangement of some kind,'' Cuomo said in an interview on Bloomberg Television's ``Political Capital with Al Hunt,'' scheduled to air today.
A ticket with one of the candidates running as vice president would give the public a chance to elect the first woman president and the first African-American president regardless of who is at the top of the ticket, Cuomo said.
"All that is required for evil to triumph is for good to do nothing."
