I’m Not Running for President, but ...
Op-Ed by Mayor Bloomberg
Unfortunately, "it is unlikely that anyone in the fly-over states would've voted for the short, Jewish, north-east socially-lenient divorcé who thinks he's too good for public housing (and by public housing I mean Gracie Mansion)" ("Bloomberg News," Economist's Democracy in America.)
Also, I'd like to point out that Bloomberg is one of those who many would characterize as uber-rich elitists, out-of-touch with America, who bought his office because there's too much money being thrown around in elections. I'll take the billionaire who clearly isn't in it for the money, and has been so successful in all of his endeavors that he amassed a massive economic empire. Don't we want on him our team? One thing to keep in mind with election reform, if you take out the money, we'll likely get politicians who are instead depending on party support -- trading ambitious entrepreneurs for middle managers.
More Bloombergs. Fewer party warriors.
