At Urban Elephants, Scott Sala sees Michael Bloomberg’s appearance with George Bush at the airport this morning as a sign that the outspokenly liberal mayor is moving rightwards.
Here’s his analyisis:
This is very significant in that Bloomberg is swinging his non-partisan scales back to the right a bit, if only just for show. It may greenlight some others to do the same. It may also remind New Yorkers, such as the numerous good government non-partisan voters, that there’s still some Red in this Blue State mayor.
