Cuomo Dipping Toe In '16 Water With Star-Studded Hurricane Sandy PSA?

November 28th, 2012 8:32 AM

Throughout his tenure as Governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo has chosen to maintain a surprisingly low profile.  Think quick: how much footage have you seen of him in the Hurricane Sandy aftermath compared to his cross-George Washington Bridge buddy, Chris Christie?

But has Cuomo finally decided the time has come to make himself more visible?  A PSA for Hurricane Sandy relief, aired on Morning Joe today featuring a star-studded cast of Al Pacino, Robert DeNiro, Whoopi Goldberg, Edie Falco, Michael J. Fox, Julianna Margulies and Nathan Lane.  One panel, devoid of reference to the relief organization, starkly read "Join Governor Cuomo and New York." View the video after the jump.

Just an altruistic effort to promote hurricane relief, or a Hollywood-tinged toe in the 2016 water for Cuomo?  Let's see: aired on MSNBC, studded with stars with a history of liberal political activism, features Cuomo's name alone.  Hmmm.
