Freepers, what think ye? He's probably has Leftist Regressive when compared to conservatives, but this is New York. Would he be a new Giuliani, who was tough on crime? Or a new Bloomberg, who was tough on Big Gulps?
Wonder if he’ll be able to unseat God - a.k.a. Mayor Bloomberg.
Is he a Teamster ?

I don’t believe Bloomie is running again.
Hard to believe.
It’s like a cat giving up catnip.
Wonder whether or not they’ll have his throne enshrined...
