Mayor Bloomberg, a lifelong Democrat (until he eyed the competition in the primary and decided to run as a Republican) has run into a little problem. As you may know, hizzoner renounced the GOP and registered as an independent a while back, thinking it would help him when he ran for President. When polling appeared less than promising, Mayor Mike decided to throw in his lot with the term-limited city council, and overturn the term limits city voters have twice affirmed.
But waddya know? The Republicans have decided since he dumped them, they don't much care for him. Now he wants to run as a Democrat, but things aren't looking that good for him there either. What's a billionaire mayor to do?
Accountable Talk has a few suggestions. What do you think Mayor Bloomberg should do?
