Andrew Cuomo's inauguration speech

Here's a bigger version of the image.

The image above is a word cloud based on the posted text of Andrew Cuomo's inaugural speech.

It's pretty much what you'd expect. The only thing that really jumped out to us was Cuomo's apparent love of the word "going." One sentence from the speech: "As governor, I'm going to tell you what I'm going to do, because I told you what I'm going to do." OK, then.

A NYT piece this past weekend focused on Cuomo's speaking style. It was alternately described as "a staccato rhythm and an intensity in delivery," classic middle-class white New Yorker," not patrician, "eerily similar to his father's," and "one part Christopher Walken; another part his father, Mario M. Cuomo; and another part old-country Italian."

Video from the inaugural speech is embedded after the jump.

Who's Bob? That's what stands out to me -- lots of expected words rank big, but then, "Bob."

I am so very thankful for the wonderful people who wandered in and out of my life over the last few years. They have given me the love and support I need to survive and thrive. Last year at this time I was at my lowest. By the grace of all that is good in my life, I have climbed out and I'm happier than I've been in a very, very long time.
