For those that may have missed tonight's mayoral debate between Mike Bloomberg and Bill Thompson, The New York Times' City Room Blog blogged the debate.  Here's a link:

So Bloomberg wins by 5 percentage points, those are some expensive points, $20 million a piece. What does it say about a mayor who has to spend SO much to win by so little ???

Imagine if the Democratic Leadership had embraced Thompson. We could have had a Democratic mayor. Congratulations, Bill.

yeah, pretty lame on his part. When listening to his speech last night, I couldn't help but think how the people cheering all had his dollar signs in their eyes.

i can't help but wonder how long King Mike will stick around NYC after his final term ends -- whenever that might be.

i think the over/under is about six months.
