Dinkins' Reach Exceeds His Grasp

Liz is reporting on Chris Quinn's ABNY speech this morning and she gets a reaction from David Dinkins about who could possibly become the next mayor: "My views on who can be mayor, and I'm not trying to denigrate the people who are running, but almost anybody can be mayor. Getting elected is another thing! But if George Bush can get elected president of the United States, it seems to be damn near anybody could be mayor."

We rather think that DD didn't need to go that far to come up with a better analogy on mayoral qualifications. There is a more appropriate example closer to home.
