While Americans are stuck at home, the Democrat dominating the airwaves to counter President Donald Trump's messaging about the coronavirus is not the one seeking to replace him in the Oval Office -- it's Governor Andrew Cuomo. And that's causing some daydreaming for political junkies with time on their hands.
The hashtag #PresidentCuomo trended on Twitter last week. Musings about Cuomo as a wild-card nominee have come from everywhere on the left, including MYT columnist Maureen Dowd, MSNBC host Rachel Maddow, who called him "president of the coronavirus response," and a writer at the feminist website Jezebel, Rebecca Fishbein, who headlined her piece, "Help, I think I'm in love with Andrew Cuomo???"
In what seemed like a metaphor for the times, cable news networks last week even skipped a speech by Biden and aired one of Cuomo's briefings instead.
But experts on the Democratic nominating process say that a Cuomo nomination is little more than a daydream.
