New York City’s Mayor, Michael Bloomberg called one of the biggest bosses you’ve seen thus far, Hillary Clinton and asked her to take over his job once he’s done with it. According to the New York Times, Bloomberg wants someone “with the combination of star power, experience and grit to fill his shoes.”
Even though Clinton’s expertise stretches worldwide, her role as Mayor would be a little less international and a lot more municipal. That doesn’t matter to Bloomberg. Apparently there was a phone call made where he eagerly encouraged the current Secretary of State to consider being the Mayor of the Big Apple. Here’s the thing though–Hillary is not interested.
Hank Sheinkopf, a New York City political operative who worked on Bloomberg’s last campaign said, “He is looking for somebody he can feel comfortable handing the reins over to.” Another woman Bloomberg has endorsed Christine Quinn–the City Council speaker who claims she ran the city with Bloomberg.
I find it hilarious that others are already confirmed to be running for Mayor, including (but not limited to) Jimmy McMillan (The Rent Is Too Damn High), Bill Thompson (former NYC Comptroller), Tom Allon (CEO Manhattan Media) and George McDonald (founder for The Doe Fund), but Bloomberg doesn’t care. He’d rather Clinton come in and dominate, as she normally does with any job she works.
