In Today’s Observer: President Mike?

In The Observer’s political pages,I take a look at who’s trying to start a Bloomberg ’08 buzz, and why, and entertain the notion semi-seriously for a few paragraphs. (Um, Happy Birthday, Mr. Mayor?)

Also, E.J. Kessler is underwhelmed by Pat Manning and Joe Conason writes on Dick Cheney.

Elsewhere in the paper, Jason Horowitz looks into the Met’s antiquities problems and Matt Schuerman finds a controversy on Brooklyn’s Fulton Street.
