Yeah,if his big nose don't hit the lens of the camera first !

We went though this in another thread.

Sam The Eagle is term limited out in 2021. He'd never win enough upstate and even Westchester/LI voters to become governor, and that office isn't up for re-election until 2022 anyway.

Bill de Boob like a few others in the democratic WH race believe the BS that country is moving towards a uber left, progressive, liberal democratic platform. Good luck with that.....

Fact that the gay guy is pulling in more money (including from New York) and is out polling BdeB should tell him and his backers something.

The guy knows he doesn't have a snowball's chance in Hades of winning, but this is what happens when you have unrestricted campaign funding. Enough eegits out there are giving BdeB at least enough money to keep this wet dream alive. That and New York City taxpayers are footing a good part of it, to wit BdeB's security detail.

In short Sam the Eagle has everything to gain and little to lose in launching a WH run. If he doesn't win the guy is still mayor of NYC until 2021. He can use that time to plot and scheme his next move.

At this point speak of city council and that body itself are running the city. Sam the Eagle just either co-signs what they've come up with, and or signs whatever bill they pass.

Corey Johnson is making himself the "front runner" in 2021 mayoral race by stepping into the void left by eegit de Blasio while the mayor is distracted elsewhere.

Even when in a few months this hot mess of a a WH run ends in tears, speak and city council have smelled blood. A good number of them are going to play political musical chairs in 2021 running for another office. As such they've much to gain by going their own way when it suits.

Corey Johnson was all smiles and glad hands out opening a new city park in Chelsea last week. Look for more of that to come.

Do you think Tish James is eyeing the mayoral race, too? Or does she have her eyes set on governor?

There's another one who cannot believe their luck. Tish James isn't going to give up that safe seat for life as NYS AG to run for term limited mayor of NYC.

Only way she *might* consider a run for mayor is something happens and TJ is voted out of office.

Voters in this state tend to leave local and state DAs and AGs alone. That is unless things to terribly bad or some scandal breaks out. Otherwise DAs in this state tend only to leave office when elected to something else.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Attorn...al_of_New_York

Dennis Vaco (last GOP NYS AG) served only one term before being booted out by Elliot Spitzer. The latter left after two terms upon winning NYS governor race.

And so it goes.

Historically AG office has been a stepping stone to governor of NYS. If Tish James is ever elected to that office I'm out of this state.

Eh, Bloomberg did a good job his first two terms so voters didn't mind it that much. The funny thing was that his third term was rather unremarkable but it is still 1000x better than deBlasio.
