Bloomberg for President?

According to this article in The New York Times, Mayor Michael Bloomberg of New York City is starting to seriously think about throwing his hat into the ring as an independent candidate for president.

I would vote for him in a heartbeat.

1) He's a billionaire. Special interest groups couldn't touch him. He doesn't need their money.

2) He's an independent. None of this stupid partisan bickering for him. Fuck the Democrats and fuck the Republicans. He would be above all their petty shit.

3) He's a progressive. He's all about making a better future. Not just for rich people or for white people, but for all people. He realizes that we, humanity, we're all in this boat together and we need to start acting like it.

4) C'mon, how could I not vote for him? He's Jewish.

This could turn into an interesting election season after all.

So far he sounds good, but you know...just because he is a billionaire doesn't mean he won't take more money...or, doesn't mean he is comfortable using his own money (this purly based on your short and sweet assesment). If he supports HR 626, then deal.
