Mario Cuomo, the longest serving Democratic governor of New York, was a powerful orator and a liberal champion for the Democratic Party’s progressive legacy. He is often remembered most for what he did not become: President of the United States.

And yet, as Saladin Ambar argues in American Cicero: Mario Cuomo and the Defense of American Liberalism, he was far more than a passing figure in American politics. Ambar contends that Cuomo was one of the most important political actors in the last quarter of the 20th century, whose career underscores a fundamental shift in both American and Democratic Party politics.

Ambar is an associate professor of political science and senior scholar at the Eagleton Center on the American Governor.
