In her warm introduction, Jennifer Hausler describes former New York governor Mario Cuomo as "the formidable, saintly genius of liberalism". The popular Democratic politician is a favorite of the 92nd Street Y, which he calls the "greatest lecture hall in the United States of America". And he should know, considering how sought-after he is as a speaker. In this September 2007 program, Cuomo addresses the Iraq War and the upcoming presidential election. He is highly critical of the Bush Administration and its policies. He touches on many other subjects, including the American economy, and then answers questions from the live audience.
Former New York Governor Mario Cuomo discusses his hopes and dreams for this country on the eve of a presidential election year. Cuomo was the longest-serving Democratic governor of New York in modern history. He twice set records for the highest popular vote total in a New York State election. Since leaving office, he remains in the public sphere, speaking to audiences about their legacy as Americans and discussing his commitment to social responsibility.
