Pass the Mike

New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg changed his party affiliation on Tuesday from Republican to "unaffiliated". It suits him because that's the way he governs. If he ran for President as things stand right now, it would almost certainly result in a Republican President. Bloomberg, as well as most other people I know do not want that. It's a shame though, Bloomberg would make a GREAT President. He is innovative, intelligent, practical and much more than competent. Right now he says he is not running. One of his aids however says that if these four criteria are met, Bloomberg will throw his hat into the ring.

" First, both party's nominees need to have unfavorable ratings at least in the 40s. Second, 70 percent of the nation needs to think the country is headed in the wrong direction, as is the case currently. We're there right now. Third, at least 60 percent of those polled need to have their minds open to a possible third-party bid. Lastly, 20 percent to 25 percent need to be open to the notion of President Mike Bloomberg."
