Bloomberg Ain’t Running
I wonder what Doug Bailey and Gerald Rashfoon are gonna do now?
NEW YORK – After two years of playing coy about his presidential ambitions, Mayor Michael Bloomberg declared in a newspaper editorial Wednesday that he will not run for president as an independent and said he might support the candidate who “takes an independent, nonpartisan approach.”
The 66-year-old billionaire businessman, who aides had said was prepared to spend $1 billion on his own independent campaign, wrote in an opinion column posted on the New York Times’ Web site that he will be working to “steer the national conversation away from partisanship and toward unity; away from ideology and toward common sense; away from sound bites and toward substance.”
Honestly, I think we’re going to have a candidate like that on both sides of the debate this year, and that should hearten many.
