As Democrat Jerry Brown appears with President Obama at USC o nFriday, Republican Meg Whitman will be in San Jose with New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

Whitman is http://community.nytimes.com/comments/www.nytimes.com/2010/09/19/nyregion/19bloomberg.html">one of a handful of candidates Bloomberg has endorsed, citing what he has called her centrist views on a number of key issues.

As the New York Times wrote last month:

New York’s billionaire mayor, whose flurry of activity is stirring a new round of speculation about his presidential ambitions, is supporting Republicans, Democrats and independents who he says are not bound by rigid ideology and are capable of compromise, qualities he says he fears have become alarmingly rare in American politics.
