"In a phone call confirmed by three people, Mr. Bloomberg encouraged Mrs. Clinton to consider entering the 2013 mayor’s race, trading international diplomacy for municipal management on the grandest scale. She would, he suggested, be a perfect fit.
Much about the call, which occurred some months ago, remains shrouded in mystery. But Mr. Bloomberg’s overture to the former first lady highlights the level of his anxiety about the current crop of candidates, his eagerness to recruit a replacement who can rival his stature and his determination to become a kingmaker in the political arena he will soon exit.
In Mrs. Clinton, it seems, a mayor known for his sometimes unsparing critiques of those in public life sees a globe-trotting problem solver like himself.
During their conversation, Mrs. Clinton left little room for doubt: she was not interested in seeking the mayoralty, people briefed on the call said."
We can't say we're surprised. Hillary's been pretty adamant that she wants to take some time off after she concludes her stint as Secretary of State and who knows if she has any interest in getting involved in city politics, even on the grand scale of New York City?
Plus, why spend time there when she can rest up and get ready for her 2016 Presidential campaign?
Not that we're hopeful or anything...
Where do you want Hillz to head next, Instincters?
