  • Bloomberg is no Nader

    Won't be a spoiler in this election for either nominee. With Obama vs. McCain it's not like the independents and moderate Dems and Republicans he needs don't have options.

    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."

    One candidate thinks the war was a mistake and wants to leave. The other doesn't.

    He is arrogant. There is partisanship in positions of substance. Non partisanship often produces meaningless sound bites.

      I guess Buckley's passing was just too much for Bloomberg.
