    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.

    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.

    Big type= for those who need reading glasses.

    ----------


    Actually, it is better for the "democratic process" to run its due course and allow Hillary and Obama to continue their debate.

    All people in America need to have the chance to see these two Democrat representatives express themselves fully and openly. Only that will show what each actually stands for, what they are made of.

    That would serve your single focused purpose well. It is unfortunate that McCain does not have the same opportunities.

    BTW big type, small body parts or short man syndrome.

    McCain and the Repubs: it is what it is. Don't blame them for getting their house in order, even as the Dems show themselves for who they really are.

    RE: "body parts and short man syndrome" -- I stand an even 6 feet tall, and my of 29 years says she is EXCEEDINGLY happy with all of me. Even the snoring.
