Andrew Cuomo, after the president arrived at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York, to visit areas devastated by Superstorm Sandy. Experts in leadership and disaster response give Bloomberg, Cuomo and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie high marks for their performance so far in Superstorm Sandy, a disaster that left more than 100 people dead and presented perhaps the biggest crisis-management test yet for the three Northeastern politicians who have all been rumored to hold presidential ambitions.
