    NewsMax.com columnist and former mayor Ed Koch stars in a new campaign urging New Yorkers to be tolerant and welcoming during the Republican National Convention in late summer.

    One ad, the New York Post reported today, depicts Koch with this caption: "The Republicans are coming. Make nice."

    The other shows him next to an elephant, the GOP symbol, and notes, "You don't have to be a Democrat to love New York."

    Koch, a lifelong Democrat who has endorsed President Bush's re-election, said: "This is a bipartisan operation. It's non-political from my vantage point."

    And there are lifelong republicans that vote democratric. It means nothing.
    Well, I'll admit that Koch is a pretty high profile lifelong Democrat.

    I always liked Ed Koch...back when he was the mayor of New York...but I didn't vote for him when he ran against Cuomo for Gov.

    I think a lot of New Yorkers, dem and Rep have always liked Koch.

    Why would he? for one its a Boston event. Governor really shouldnt be involved. but more importantly he is campaigning for Bush. Why would he be out supporting Kerry lol

    Koch is a classic Republicrat. He's a Republican when it suits him and democrat when that suits him. He's supporting President Bush to curry favor with Rudy Guiliani and Michael Bloomberg.

    What possible reason does Koch need to curry favor with Bloomberg or Guilliani?
