When Presidential Fever Runs Higher Than Common Sense

February 25, 2019

When reading this story it made me wonder what the Las Vegas odds-makers have to say about the chances of Bill de Blasio to sit in the Oval Office.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio addressed a crowd here on Sunday that could have easily fit into a subway car back home, with room to spare for the people he met a night earlier on his first stop of the year in Iowa … ‘I’m certainly not ruling out a run for the presidency,’ de Blasio said after a young man finally raised the question about his White House ambitions. ‘Right now, it is a decision I have not made.’ That decision is precisely what led the mayor to speak at a union hall where 42 chairs were filled and about 10 other people were standing — more than 1,100 miles away from his own City Hall on Sunday afternoon. It followed a visit to Sioux City on Saturday night, where a couple dozen Democrats braved a blizzard to meet him at a downtown bar.
