If, somehow, Mayor Bloomberg is not re-elected,I believe that the analysts will point to a miscalculation made this past Saturday as one of the key reasons for the loss.
The mayor’s acceptance of the Independence Party line is sure to haunt him. It will hurt him in the Republican primary as his two GOP opponents, former council member Thomas Ognibene and investment banker Steven Shaw will have the opportunity to link Mr. Bloomberg to the wacky Marxist, cultlike politics of Lenora Fulani and her mentor, Frederick Newman. This will be just the tip of the iceberg.
