Analysis: Andrew Cuomo lays out his survival blueprint

(CNN) Speaking publicly for the first time since a trio of allegations surfaced over the past week about inappropriate behavior with women, New York Democratic Gov.
Andrew Cuomo said sorry -- and, importantly, laid out his blueprint for how he thinks he can survive this scandal.
Here it is:1.
He's sorry and embarrassed: "I'm sorry.
I'm sorry for whatever pain I caused anyone."
He didn't do it knowingly: "I now understand that I acted in a way that made people feel uncomfortable.
It was unintentional and I truly and deeply apologize for it."
He is affectionate by nature -- but that doesn't matter: "You can go find hundreds of pictures of me kissing people.
I kiss and hug legislators.
It doesn't matter, my intent.
If they were offended by it, then it was wrong."
