The mayor of New York City gets city council to extend term limits, allowing him to run for a third term. I covered the Giuliani-Bloomberg transition (and NYC’s first post-9/11 New Year’s Eve) for the National Post at the dawn of 2002. The attitude among New Yorkers I talked to then was that Bloomberg was a zhlub but probably not too much of a problem. Now he seems permanent.
