Late New York City icon Ed Koch was well aware of his age when he put his support behind 2013 mayoral favorite Christine Quinn extra early, but he never got around to recording that campaign commercial. "Her team must now rely on television footage and a single fuzzy audio clip, recorded by a campaign staff member in 2011," the New York Times reports today, in a piece about how it's sort of awkward to trade on the legacy of a dead guy. "There is a way to tastefully and appropriately remind people that Mayor Koch thought that Chris Quinn would make a great mayor," said Quinn's chief strategist Josh Isay, but "we're not at that point of the discussion." Based on our political handbooks, "too soon" stops mattering in September.
