"Lack of any correlation between a tableau of traditional family life and the values, character and skills it takes to govern effectively."

Can you shack up and be president? Who really cares, anyway?

Love, Marriage and Voters, by Frank Bruni (New York Times)

ANDREW CUOMO doesn’t dally. If he deems something important, he pounces on it. Last week he did that with gun control, signing sweeping new legislation.

He’s also ambitious. A 2016 presidential bid may be in the offing, especially if Hillary Clinton doesn’t jump in. And the national profile that he’s forging — trailblazer on gay marriage, guardian of public safety — almost surely reflects his sense of where the country is heading and what voters will and won’t reward.

How, then, are we supposed to read his romantic situation?
