      Has publically given no statement on her feelings about Bloomberg asking Hillary to run for Mayor but I've heard that she's really pissed.  

      People are already holding it against her and have been since 2009.  Additionally there are a few more matters that would make her the last person I and 99.9% of my friends and family won't be voting for her in the Primary and would have a very, very had time voting for her in the General in November.

      •  Her closeness to Bloomberg will be her downfall (0+ / 0-)

        There are basically four Democrats running for the Mayoral nomination:

        Quinn:  Too close to Bloomberg; she will be on the defense all summer and her numbers will fall

        John Liu: City Comptroller- support of the Asian American community, but is being nvestigated about campaign financing problems.

        Bill Thompson: Former City Comptroller, lost to Bloomberg in 2009.  Good guy, would probably make a good mayor, but a little too low key, and he had his chance.

        That leaves Bill DiBlasio, the Public Advocate.  Italian American with an African American wife; commanding stature- he's about 6'4" (I've met him a couple of times); and already has support of some unions, including the teachers.

        •  The 2 Bills (0+ / 0-)

          Stand a better chance of being elected than either Quinn or Liu for the reasons you've stated.  Additionally, I don't know if you're aware of it or not but DiBlasio is only 1/2 Italian on his Mother's side.  His father was German and DiBlasio changed his last name when he entered politics.  I know the name started with a "W" but can't remember exactly what it was.
