Bloomberg Describes His Ideal Senator, Vaguely

Speaking to reporters in Manhattan about a new effort to boost tourism in the city, Michael Bloomberg was asked if it’s important for David Paterson’s appointee to the Senate to be immediately recognizable far and wide.

The mayor, who some of Caroline Kennedy’s close supporters believe has actually hurt her case by advocating her cause, answered merely that he hopes New York gets someone “with a brilliant mind who will be able to pull together a great staff.”
