Dinkins on a Bloomberg Presidential Run

123107 dinkins web Dinkins on a Bloomberg Presidential RunIn the midst of increasingly frequent rumors about a presidential bid, Michael Bloomberg held his annual prayer breakfast at the New York Public Library this morning, giving Democratic Mayor David Dinkins a shout-out from the podium.

Afterwards, I asked Dinkins about his feelings about a Bloomberg run.

"I’m a big fan of the mayor, I like him a lot," he told me. But he added, “I stay with my friends. Hillary and Bill Clinton supported me, and I will support them."

I asked him what he would do if she wasn’t the nominee.

"Then, that’s a whole other question,” he replied.
