Bloomberg Drops Another Hint He Might Run
New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg had a rapt audience on the steps of City Hall Thursday as he did what he loves to do most these days: hint that he might join the presidential race.
Some were admirers, some not -- the audience was a bipartisan group of over 40 Capitol Hill press secretaries taking a delegation trip (read: junket) to Manhattan.
Bloomberg's independent starpower as a potential third-party presidential candidate had -- perhaps now only briefly -- appeared to fade just days ago with the perceived surge for Sen. Barack Obama's Democratic presidential candidacy. But he sure didn't sound uninterested Thursday.
According to two press secretaries who were there, Bloomberg looked the crowd over and asked, "How many electoral college votes do you represent?"
Asked if that was a hint that he's getting in the race, Bloomberg just smiled, they said.
