This edition: Is Andrew Cuomo Presidential Timber?

Episode Details

Original tape date: September 17, 2015.

First aired: September 28, 2015.

Projecting a sour, almost misanthropic, personality, Andrew Cuomo, who aspires to the presidency, has enjoyed a 35-year political career, tarnished by episodes of raw ambition, betrayal of friends, and punishment of enemies. Writer Michael Shnayerson, author of the best selling unauthorized biography, The Contender, tells Jim Zirin why, in his view, our Governor Cuomo is a flawed tragic hero.
