Let’s See George Bush Try That

Here is a clip of Michael Bloomberg chatting with Tom Brokaw at Cooper Union last night explaining why being mayor in New York is better than being the top official in the country.

Bloomberg explained that if, say, he wanted to change the direction of traffic on Fifth Avenue, “it may be a dumb idea, but tomorrow morning, there’d be a cop on every corner. Every sign would be changed. I mean, it would go northbound.” After some laughter from the audience, he said, “Presidents can’t do that.”
