In an interview taped this morning with Gabe Pressman, Police Commissioner Ray Kelly politely side-stepped a question about whether he might run for mayor in 2009 at the request of Michael Bloomberg.
From the interview:
Commissioner KELLY: Well, I'm going to be police commissioner, hopefully, till the end of the term–Mayor Bloomberg's term here.
PRESSMAN: And after that?
Commissioner KELLY: Well, after that we'll see.
The interview will air on Sunday.
