New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg is building his national profile as fiscally conservative and socially liberal.

He has attacked teachers’ unions on NBC, but also defended the rights of Muslims on CBS. He wants to expand gay rights and cut public workers’ pensions. He is flying around the country endorsing Republicans and Democrats alike.

For now, aides insist this is not part of any grand plan except to let Bloomberg be Bloomberg. It gives him something to do after nine years at the same desk, and he’s never minded anything that feeds his vanity.

Bloomberg has been a Democrat, a Republican, and is now an independent, at at time when 54% of the country says we need a new political party.
