6. A question I'd like some Bloomberg insider to answer is whether he's intent on

running regardless of whom we nominate.

It's hard to get the full measure of his intent when we don't know what it is yet.

I'd like to know exactly what is motivating him. He barely won his first term as NYC mayor, edging Mark Green by a whisker. He's got some bucks. He's got some problem-solving skills -- more and better problem-solving skills than his predecessor.

But we haven't nominated anybody yet and neither have the Pukes.

There's a lot of "If this" and "If that" questions still out there before we can make firm guesses on a potential Bloomberg impact.
