Well, well, well, what do we have here?

Mike Bloomberg and Chuck Hagel [were] dining together last night at the Palm. The New York mayor had a New York strip steak, the Nebraska senator had wild halibut, and each polished off a glass of merlot and mixed berries for dessert. They were deep in conversation for two hours; since both are mulling presidential bids, who was courting whom?

Can you imagine? A Bloomberg/Hagel ticket, or a Hagel/Bloomberg ticket? Be still my heart.

So, who do you think would win in the three-way race?

a) Clinton/Obama
b) Guiliani/McCain
c) Bloomberg/Hagel

Shouldn’t Ed Koch be in there somewhere? What about Steinbrenner or Trump?
