Although there’s no truth to the rumor that Andrew Cuomo ends each Tappan Zee Bridge meeting with the words, ‘€œMay The Political Force Be With You,’€ he did perform a feat worthy of Obi-Wan Kenobi last week. New York’s governor used only four words to inspire the public, raise his Green Cred, subdue the press and derail organized opposition to a new Tappan Zee Bridge.
During a cabinet meeting open to the media last Wednesday, Cuomo seemed to endorse the idea of turning the current Tappan Zee Bridge into a pedestrian / bike greenway over the Hudson. ‘€œIt’s an exciting option,’€ he said.
