Bloomberg Promises Not to Criticize De Blasio For a Little While At Least

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg meets with Mayor-Elect Bill de Blasio on November 6, 2013 at City Hall, the morning after De Blasio was elected New York Citys first Democratic mayor in two decades. De Blasio won a stunning landslide victory of 73.3 percent of votes cast compared to 24.3 percent for his Republican rival Joe Lhota, according to results from 99 percent of polling stations. But of the 4.6 million registered voters in New York only 1.02 million actually cast their vote, based on those results.

We're just going to put this one here: "In the first year in particular, you just don't need a previous mayor saying something," said Michael Bloomberg today. "These jobs are tough enough without an extra voice criticizing you." The remarks were made on the radio, so it's impossible to say whether he was crossing his fingers and his toes.
