When you screw up…

…do it big:

NEW YORK Rick Karlin of the Albany (N.Y.) Times-Union has created a bit of a buzz in the newly race-charged race between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama by posting on the paper’s blog, Capitol Confidential, the following:

“I suppose there could be lots of tea leaf reading in this one, but now its AG [Attorney General] Andrew Cuomo on Talk 1300, minutes after the governor came on. Cuomo, to be fair, has been on the radio show a few times, if memory serves me, but his take on Hillary’s win in NH is that that small-state primary with its retail politics is a good thing. ‘It’s not a TV crazed race. Frankly you can’t buy your way into it,’ Cuomo said. ‘You can’t shuck and jive at a press conference,’ he added. ‘All those moves you can make with the press don’t work when you’re in someone’s living room.’”

I’m betting Bill Clinton’s face just exploded.
