Bloomberg More Cautious About Pushing Kennedy
Maybe Mayor Bloomberg was spooked by Wayne Barrett's article this morning. Previously he was gushy on the possibility of Caroline Kennedy's rise to the Senate ("Caroline can do anything"). But on ABC's "The View" today, Bloomberg was more cagey. "It's not my call," he told the hosts. "If it were my call to pick somebody, I know exactly..." When asked if he meant Kennedy, Bloomberg said, "I can't tell you, because then I'd be getting involved." Also asked if Kennedy fit his stated requirements for a New York Senator, Bloomberg said, "yes, but there are other people as well."
