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."
