1. He'd better get into a real "New York state of mind" on this.

Like reality.

3. It really redundant. I think some are doing this just to put it into their resume, and hope they

can exert some leverage at the convention, especially if it ends up as a brokered convention, which I hope it doesn't

4. I guess I'd better get my advisory committee to make up their minds

so maybe I can hop on the bandwagon, too. We might as well all do it, and then the DNC can just draw a name out of a very large hat.

Seriously, this is getting pretty stupid.

*Update* My advisory committee, consisting of three cats, has just informed me that because I am not popular among my constituency and do not have a strong base of donors, I should just stay home and feed them, so I'm out. Should I send my committee to advise Mayor DiBlasio?

5. I am starting to get really irritated

by the absurd size of the field. Number 1 priority should be to take back the WH and Senate. Anything that disrupts that is very damaging.

9. Debates are being limited to 20, any other candidates effectively won't be a factor.

10. Bueller wasn't in today

But an informal poll indicates many voters consider him a righteous dude

8. From Vanity Fair (May 3rd): Bill de Blasio Still Desperately Trying to Justify Running for President

Despite near-universal consensus that he should not run for president, Bill de Blasio is still flirting with the idea. After reports emerged that pollsters were calling Iowa voters to gauge their opinion on de Blasio, hizzoner admitted that his political action committee had paid for polling in the early-primary state. “I want to look at a lot of information,” de Blasio told reporters during a press briefing on Thursday. “The ultimate decision, as I said, is a personal one and a family one, but of course it makes sense to look at other information.”

It’s unclear exactly what the potential Johnny-come-lately candidate expects to find in Iowa, given that every poll out of the state has him at 0 percent (or not even listed), while high-profile progressives like Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren already occupy his hypothetical lane. Moreover, it’s unclear where de Blasio is getting the idea he should enter the crowded race in the first place, considering absolutely no one seems to want him there. Of nearly three-dozen allies and advisers surveyed by Politico in March, only two said he should run, while the rest considered the idea to be, as one adviser put it, “fucking insane.” A Monmouth poll found that, of every single Democratic candidate, both declared and undeclared, de Blasio was the only one with a net negative favorability rating.

14. Cementing another

bad decision by de Blasio.. evidently he's had a few or NYC would be running better.

He's already in the top 3 of Negatives.. and he hadn't even declare yet.
