Bloomberg in 2008?

Rumor has it that New York City mayor Mike Bloomberg is considering entering the race for the presidency in 2008 as an independent. (Bloomberg was a Democrat, then turned Republican when it was clear that he had a better shot at getting elected mayor as a Republican at the time.)

Bloomberg, 65, has told confidants that he will not decide until early next year, when it has become clear whom Democrats and Republicans will nominate.

If he runs for president as a self-financed independent, New York could find itself home to a trio of presidential candidates, an oddity for a state and city often portrayed as far outside the mainstream of American political and social life.

While Bloomberg is a good mayor with respect to fiscal responsibility and keeping New York clean and crime-free, he's also a major lib when it comes to social issues: for example, he wants strict gun control laws, he was behind the strict smoking laws in New York, and he was on board with the banning of trans-fats in restaurants.

Could he win as an independent? It's hard to tell. He's a billionaire, and so can afford to finance his own campaign (as he did during his two runs for mayor). But as much as people whine about wanting more choices, they pretty much stick with the two major parties.

The question would be, then, would Bloomberg be draining votes from the Republican or Democrat candidate?

Heard you on My Point: Care to revise your Eagles numbers? You know, the one's you got from the "Park Services?"

As for Bloomberg - a democrat in wolves clothing.

Pam, can't answer your question over at Jenn's because I've been banned again.

But here's a hint Pam...google "park services." Then you'll have to decide which park services...is the light bulb going off yet? Could it be the National Park Services...the very ones who don't give out estimates?

If you listen to the end of My Point - Dave, after googleing furiously, finally conceded the point that the "Park Services" (and/or The National Park Services) does not give estimates on crowd numbers. Fact. Then Dave and Jenn proceeded to try and blame the fact that the "park services" no longer gives out stats, on liberals. But hey...it's what they do. The fact is, I spoke truth to lies. There are no Park Services estimates, and you, Pam, stated that the Eagles said there was. That would smear the Eagles themselves in a way.

Stick with the truth - you're always better off.

Never got an email from you...so I can't answer what I didn't get. Perhaps it went to the bulk mail?

Sorry for the prior comment - didn't mean it to go here! As to Bloomberg - do we really need James Earl Carter, Jr. redux? Cause that's what he'd be.
