It’s become standard practice for presidential candidates to release personal memoirs outlining their governmental philosophy, and although Governor Andrew Cuomo insists he’s focused on New York, he’s soon to follow down that well-tread electoral path.

“This is a private book. It’s not a government book,” he told reporters during an unrelated press conference in Albany. It doesn’t yet have a name, but as Mr. Cuomo described it, the memoir will be sure to address how he approaches government and tout his accomplishments.

For a good portion of the day, outgoing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has been testifying before Congress about federal government’s response to the September 11th attacks against the American diplomatic mission in Libya, but that doesn’t mean presidential politics have completely left the room.

Indeed, in front of the House Foreign Affairs Committee earlier this afternoon, Ms. Clinton faced at least two questioners dropping not-so-subtle suggestions regarding her hypothetical campaign for the White House in 2016. Notably, Democratic Rep. Ted Deutch, who represents the Miami suburbs, expressed hope he’ll be seeing Ms. Clinton politicking in his swing state in the future.
