Dunno if it's coincidence or not, but Eva Moskowitz has gotten a bit quiet lately about de Blasio.
One wonders if Civic Consulting Alliance helping to run things behind the scenes hasn't assuaged some of her concerns.
None of this is much of a surprise.
Bill de Blasio is a politician who made his bones in the Clinton administration.
This jive about de Blasio's election being the dawn of a new progressive era and de Blasio driving Cuomo and Obama to the left - it's pure fantasy.
No politician that came of age in the Clinton administration, is friends with Andrew Cuomo and Rahm Emanuel and happily (and secretly) uses Bloomberg-funded consulting groups to run their transition teams is going to be anything other than another destructive neo-liberal.
