Bam for Bloom?

last show, a caller suggested that the only hope of defeating Boss Bloomberg would be intervention from Obama himself.

after all, she reasoned, Obama had made several campaign appearances for Jersey Gov. Corzine, so why not Bill Thompson?

well, not only does the White House want David Patterson out of the 2010 gubernatorial race, but the Prez may not lift a finger to help Thompson.

today's Daily News offers this bleak assessment for Thompson:

"I think [the President is] going to hedge," a Democrat close to Thompson glumly predicted.

"The first black President who tells the first black governor to get out, and he won't help the guy who wants to be the second black mayor? The irony is thick."

There's just five weeks until the mayoral election.

...Bloomberg is running on the GOP line, never made an endorsement in the 2008 presidential race and reportedly was on Sen. John McCain's vice presidential short list.

see, even the President of the United States doesn't want to risk bucking Bloomberg.
