Having caught his breath after one of the most prolonged primary campaigns in history, Howard Wolfson, Hillary Clinton's longtime communications director, will now go direct some communication for Mayor Bloomberg's re-election campaign. Wolfson announced the new gig in an exclusive interview with NY1, calling Bloomberg "somebody who governs by addition, not by subtraction." In an e-mail to friends obtained by Poltico, Wolfson wrote: "As a New Yorker, I am very excited at the prospect of helping the Mayor at this very critical time in our city's history." And when questioned about his past dismissal of Hizzoner as "an out-of-touch billionaire," Wolfson explained that he those were not his words, but rather his "evil twin."
