5. NYC Mayor is a position that is vastly overstated outside the NYC limits.

Yes, it's the nation's largest city. But governing a municipality is far different than governing a country or a state, no matter what the size.

That's why all the NYC mayors who have either been rumored to be Presidential candidates or have declared have crashed and burned.

Despite what New Yorkers might think, non-New Yorkers don't put much stock or interest into the NYC mayor position beyond it being a local curiosity. They just don't.
