We were interested to hear that Mike was the guest of honor recently at a house party at the Harlem home of Clyde Williams, a former Bill Clinton aide and now an official at the Clintonite Center for American Progress in Washington.
Stealthy Clinton support for the Republican Mayor? And who is Mike going to endorse in 2008 anyway?
Before we could get too excited, we learned that Williams has hosted these meet-and-greet events for some of the Democratic contenders as well. Still, it’s a sign of how Mike is in contention for traditionally Democratic votes not just — or even primarily — among the rank and file, but also among the party’s leadership.
We hear Mike was very well received, and that complaints to him about local problems were promptly addressed.
