2. If you know anything of Paterson, I don't think you'd muse on this...
Just my opinion. I have growing respect for the mayor, and can see no way he would do something like this... none.

5. Bloomburg, the mayor who could be backing Patterson with a lot more of his money if someone gets
her senate seat.

7. You were still correct, it was Kennedy/Bloomburg who got hung out by Patterson's office
leaking that she had withdrawn and even giving "reasons" why he would choose Coumo. Anonymously, of course. ;)

10. Why would Bloomberg care? He can't run a Kennedy.

4. I fucking hope not. Dude. Governor. Grow a SPINE!
They used to feel up the prospective Pope centuries ago to make sure "he" had balls. They need to do the same with all Dems, except feel for a SPINE before any are allowed to take office.

11. Telling Caroline and Bloomburg that she is out if there isn't more help and if they don't believe it
to watch the nypost.com? That's a spine.

Sent her scrambling to the fastest news outlet she could.

I think the governor does want to get re-elected. Bloomburg is in a better position to help with that but he's going to make sure he gets all the help from him he can.
