The borough president must be feeling pretty pleased with himself.
Not only did Chuck Schumer, New York's senior senator, show up for this morning's State of the Borough Address at Hostos College in the South Bronx, but Hillary Clinton did as well.
Both heaped praise and superlatives on a beaming Carrión.
Clinton's appearance seems to have put to bed rumors that the BP favors another presidential hopeful, Barack Obama.
When asked by a reporter whether he supports Clinton, Carrión said: "I absolutely do. Look, she’s our New York Senator, she’s a friend, she has worked very hard to bring resources to this state and I think she’ll do the same for this country. And when I talk about an urban agenda, I think we’re on the same page."
