Mayor Bloomberg Failed to Talk Hillary Clinton Into Taking His Job

Bloomberg is so arrogant that he thinks that he can pass along his office to the person of his choice. It was that same arrogance that led him to overturn term limits in New York City so that he could become Mayor for a third term. He spent over $100 million to buy the office. Despite that barely won re-election the last time around. Obviously the Mayor has very little regard for people of this city. After all, he's a billionaire who made his fortune on Wall St. as a media mogul. He is part of the 1% and thus considers himself superior to the people:

Politicos have been wringing their hands for months now, waiting to hear what Hillary Clinton will do after her stint as Secretary of State ends next month. Now we know one thing she won't do: Run for mayor of New York City. The New York Times's Michael Barbaro dropped a scoop on Monday night revealing that "Bloomberg encouraged Mrs. Clinton to consider entering the 2013 mayor's race" in a private phone call. Barbaro says that he confirmed the news with three unnamed sources and added, "She would, the mayor suggested, be a perfect fit." Hillary disagreed.

Well, this is just silly. Hillary Clinton doesn't even live in New York City! (Not that she couldn't move there and establish residency just like she did when she decided to be a New York Senator.) And wasn't she supposed to make a big surprise announcement sometime in the next couple of years, revealing that she does, in fact, want to run for president again in 2016? Well, the last we heard she was definitely not running for president or any other political office. A few months ago, she told a crowd in India, "I feel it's time for me to get off the high wire." Plus, she has a lot of HGTV to catch up on.
