edkoch.jpgHow upset would we be if Ed Koch's prediction is true, that Bloomberg will be a one-term mayor? Koch tells the Daily News, "I don't believe he'll run for a second term. He doesn't get the same visceral pleasure that I got out of being mayor or that [Rudy] Giuliani got. You hit me, I hit you back. He, who has done a wonderful job on the merits and should be praised, probably says to himself, 'I'm doing everything on the merits and they're beating me up. This is incredible.'"
