New York City mayor Bill de Blasio once again refused to endorse his former boss, Hillary Clinton, in remarks today. "This is a different country we’re living in right now, and I think we need to hear a vision that relates to this time," de Blasio said.
The mayor also suggested that Clinton indeed is a candidate of yesterday. She's "a candidate who has not been in the public eye in this sense for almost eight years, and we're still beginning to hear what she stands for," he said. "It's normal to want to hear more."

Bill de Blasio ran Hillary Clinton's New York Senate race in 2000. But he's not yet ready to endorse his former boss for president of the United States. He made the comments this morning in an interview with NBC's Chuck Todd:
Todd asked, "Are you for her now, unequivocally, or do you want to wait to see if she takes your advice on moving to a more progressive agenda?"
Newspapers endorse candidates with such solemnity that you'd think they believe their readers actually care and that elections might actually hang in the balance. "Oh my God, did you see this, Helen? The Times is endorsing Obama. I guess that changes everything."
