Mayor Bloomberg was painting rooftops white in Long Island City today because it reflects sunlight, lowering cooling costs so who better to join him than the whitest person in world, Al Gore? Bloomberg has done a good job so far racking up support or at least non-opposition from high-profile Democrats, and though he didn't explicitly come out and endorse the candidacy of Mayor Bloomberg, Gore could barely contain his veneration for Hizzoner's leadership:
And I'm proud to endorse the leadership and the actions the Mayor Bloomberg has been taking for quite a long time on this issue and this is just another example of that. I am a recovering politician. I'm on about step nine, so I try to stay out of the partisan races, but I'm very proud of Mike Bloomberg's leadership, I really am. I'm not just saying it. I get a chance to work with mayors all over this country, and actually mayors in lots of other countries as well, and I know real leadership on the environment when I see it, and this is the real deal.
Okay, okay, we believe you — relax.
