The New York Times today (1-1-08) reported that New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is making some exploratory moves to position himself as an Independent candidate for the 2008 Presidential Election. His peeps are doing the necessary pre-election spade work. Details can be found here:
If Bloomberg decides to run as an Independent candidate, will he have any impact on this year’s presidential race? Will he become this year’s Ross Perot, Ralph Nader, or Fred Thompson? If Bloomberg becomes a factor, should Republicans worry – or celebrate? Thoughts anyone?
