Obama and Thompson, Not Yet

This is not the sign  Bill Thompson was hoping for:

Asked if President Obama would support Democrat Bill Thompson in his bid to unseat incumbent Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Gibbs evaded the question.

"I haven't talked to anybody in political affairs about that," Gibbs replied.

Asked again if the White House was willing to voice support for its party's candidate, Gibbs repeated: "I said I hadn't talked to the political affairs office on that."
