Despite his earlier insistence that everything between himself and the Clinton campaign is hunky-dory, Mayor Bill de Blasio still seems to be having a heck of a time convincing the high profile presidential candidate to appear in the same room with him.

On Wednesday, of the 300-odd people who attended the “Rally for Hillary in Manhattan” at the Lower Manhattan offices of the United Federation of Teachers, Clinton herself was not among them.

“The mayor is still overcoming his early reluctance to endorse Hillary,” veteran Democratic political consultant Geroge Arzt told the New York Times, “and in the hottest Democratic presidential primary in years here, this is proving to be a little awkward.”

Interestingly, the major’s wife, Chirlane McCray, is having no trouble drawing candidate Clinton’s ear: the two held a rally together on Tuesday with the intent of drawing female voters to the Clinton cause.
