  •  not a great choice, IMHO (2+ / 0-)

    Front-runner Quinn might have been good once, but her last few years have been terrible. First came the deal to overturn term limits for Bloomberg, despite a voter referendum that initiated term limits and a later one that turned down an attempt to repeal term limits. Oh yeah, these term limits apply to the city council too, which Quinn leads. Quinn main achievement this year is in watering down the living wage bill so much that it only affects about 500 employees.

    2 years back, I would have been for Liu, but the campaign finance accusations against him are serious. I've yet to decide if its a case of 'everybody did it, but he got caught', or if he went overboard (assuming he is found guilty).

    I guess DeBlasio and Thompson are my choices right now, but the latter is uninspiring while the former is unproven. I was for Stringer, but he pulled out to run for controller instead.

    Meanwhile the Republicans have 3 democrats who bolted since they couldnt win a Democratic primary.
