Michael Bloomberg for President in 2012
via Mudrake - Thomas L. Freidman writing an op-ed for the New York Times
I had to catch a train in Washington last week. The paved street in the traffic circle around Union Station was in such poor condition that I felt as though I was on a roller coaster. I traveled on the Amtrak Acela, our sorry excuse for a fast train, on which I had so many dropped calls on my cellphone that you’d have thought I was on a remote desert island, not traveling from Washington to New York City. When I got back to Union Station, the escalator in the parking garage was broken. Maybe you’ve gotten used to all this and have stopped noticing. I haven’t. Our country needs a renewal. 
And that is why I still hope Michael Bloomberg will reconsider running for president as an independent candidate, if only to participate in the presidential debates and give our two-party system the shock it needs.
I love the idea of shaking up the two parties, but would Bloomberg take votes away from Obama and enable Romney to win?  The gun-rights folks are already not voting for Obama.  What do you think?
