Mario Cuomo: Death of a political giant

Former New York Governor Mario Cuomo passed away from heart failure Thursday evening at the age of 82.

The son of Italian immigrants, Cuomo rose to the state's highest office serving three terms in Albany from 1983 to 1994.

He first drew national attention at the 1984 democratic convention when his keynote address underscoring the tenets of liberal politics during the Reagan era–brought the capacity crowd in San Francisco to its feet.
