At the opening plenary session of the Clinton Global Initiative just now, Michael Bloomberg appeared with Lance Armstrong to announce a joint anti-cancer effort between their foundations.
After the cyclist mentioned his announced return to competition, the Mayor said, “l did like the comments about doing it again, but that’s another issue.”
He smiled broadly as the audience applauded and laughed.
Then Bill Clinton more or less endorsed a third term for Mayor Bloomberg, saying of Hizzoner:
“I admire him, I’m grateful for his service and I’m guessing there’s a lot more ahead.”
