It's Easy To Be Popular

In an editorial on the prospect of New York mayor Michael Bloomberg running as a third party candidate for president, The Wall Street Journal notes that Bloomberg is resting on Rudy Giuliani’s laurels:

…[Bloomberg] has … been able to play the role of nonpartisan healer in part because Mr. Giuliani was willing to take on the city’s liberal interest groups on taxes, welfare, crime and public order. Mr. Bloomberg has a better bedside manner than Mr. Giuliani, but it’s also easier to be popular when you’re not picking as many policy fights.
