Bill De Blasio’s Race Might Result to Running to Nowhere

Jonathan Capehart The WashingtonPostMay 22, 2019

Look, I know I’ve been saying for months that anyone who wants to run to try to defeat President Donald Trump should run. And now New York Mayor Bill de Blasio is the 23rd Democrat to join the race for the presidential nomination. But hizzoner really shouldn’t. If past is prologue, de Blasio enters the race already marked for doom.

Big Apple mayors always think City Hall is a political trampoline to higher office. As if running the country’s largest city - with a budget and police force that rival those of some foreign nations - inherently makes them qualified to sashay onto a bigger political stage. Instead, it’s a diving board into an empty pool.
