Bloomberg Bags O'Reilly's Vote
March 30th, 2009

As Mayor Michael Bloomberg courts Republican officials across the city, he has successfully nabbed at least one conservative’s vote for another accolade: The Time 100.

Fox conservative crusader and staple Bill O’Reilly said in this week’s issue of Time that he would like to see Bloomberg make the magazine’s list of worldwide influential leaders.

O’Reilly argues: “New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg is one of the most generous men in America. By donating millions to charity each year, he sets an example and elevates the political landscape. He is firm without being mean, effective without doing harm. He is devoting his life to helping others.”

Time is currently taking votes on who should make the list this year. While Britney Spears is in the top 10, Bloomberg is ranked 108 right now — just a smidgen away from making the final cut (The magazine’s description of the mayor does refer to his term limit extension as a possible “power grab”).
