Cunningham's Case for Bloomberg

The better Rudy Giuliani does in the national polls, the more it proves that Mike Bloomberg could be a real contender for president.

That seemed to be the case that Bloomberg’s former communications director Bill Cunningham was making last night on NY1.

“Everyday, another newspaper writes about it. You talked about it. Your guests talk about it. It’s on all the talk shows. You can’t run away from it. But, I take him at his word [that he won’t run]. On the other hand, I know a lot of people wonder if a New York mayor, who is pro choice, pro gun control, pro gay rights, anti-smoking, can run nationally. Rudy will find that out, if you can be all those things and run nationally. But there are many states in the country where a Michael Bloomberg can do very well.”
