Bill de Blasio ended his presidential campaign today.
I’m going to miss him. His presidential campaign was even more improbable than Eric Swalwell’s and distinguished by even more hubris. His campaign served as a reminder that every politician, no matter how incompetent and unpopular, wakes up every morning and sees a future president staring back at them from the bathroom mirror.
The main lesson to learned from the de Blasio campaign is the lesson that many politicians have had to learn the hard way. If you want to be president, don’t run for mayor of New York.
