Bloomberg Won't Run

Mike Bloomberg, current mayor of New York has decided not to run for president. A move that at the very least signals his belief that Barack Obama will win the democratic nomination. One of his criteria was that there was a "hole" in the electorate that an independent could fill. Had say Clinton and Romney won their nominations on Feb 5, Bloomberg might've jumped in as the center candidate in what would be a polarized fight. 

As a New York resident, I largely approve of Bloomberg's job and I think his thinking is even more impressive. I had hoped to see him on a ticket this year if for no other reason than to force more issue debates into the campaign. Hopefully, he can do that from his position of wealth and influence across the country.
