Barack Obama had some kind words for New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg in a speech today (Obama was introduced by Bloomberg). From his prepared remarks:
I want to thank Mayor Bloomberg for his extraordinary leadership. At a time when Washington is divided in old ideological battles, he shows us what can be achieved when we bring people together to seek pragmatic solutions. Not only has he been a remarkable leader for New York -he has established himself as a major voice in our national debate on issues like renewing our economy, educating our children, and seeking energy independence. Mr. Mayor, I share your determination to bring this country together to finally make progress for the American people.

My take on the factors Bloomberg will weigh as he considers a presidential endorsement is here.
