I'm not putting money on any results, although it seems likely that Cuomo will sleepwalk in with ease. I will predict the following, however: The next two years will be a battle royale between the Tea Partiers and the Neocons, and the result will change the Grand Old Party one way or the other for a long time to come. Populists or corporate hacks? Slash defense to kill the national debt, or start new wars in some new locale to increase spending in the private sector? It seems pretty obvious that the center cannot hold--this supposed alliance is nothing of the kind, and it will result in an ugly implosion. It's enough to make me look forward to the occasional Tea Party win today.
