Michael Bloomberg finally gave some detailed answers as to what lies in his future:
“I have said that I plan–I am not a candidate for being governor of New York State," he told reporters gathered on the third floor of the Capitol building after the State of the State. "I am not a candidate for being president of the United States, and I was asked what will I do as we get near the end of 2009."
He went on, "December 31, 2009, I’ll have my last day in City Hall. On January 1st, 2010, I will go to the inauguration of my successor. On January 2nd, 2010, I’ll take my mother out to dinner for what will be her 101st birthday.
"On the third [of January], I think I’ll go and play golf for three or four days, get that out of my system, and then a life of philanthropy, I think is what is going to happen,” he finished.
