The Jaker

Mostly rational politics, with occasional rants about how a few crazy Republicans are ruining the country.

2008 Wildcard: Bloomberg
NYC mayor Michael Bloomberg was in my rankings for a long time - on both the Democratic and Republican sides. I took him out in August after a pretty firm statement that he wouldn't run. But I probably should have just knocked him down.

The thing is, I really can't see him running for either party. Almost definitely not as a Republican, with this Republican constituency running that party. And not as a Democrat either after 5 years as a Republican mayor.

So increasingly the possibility narrows to Bloomberg potentially being the Ross Perot of 2008, though with more to back up a 3rd party / independent run, and a much higher profile.

He's the wildcard.

    Senator Bayh is much awaited upon to announce his exploritory committee and is being looked forward to being the most important choice for President for the Democratic party and the United States Of America due to many things including his integerity, intellegent views on foreign policy, support of Israel in Middle-Eastern affairs, fiscal responsiblity in a bayh/bi-partisan manner, his strong stance on impressive education such as his 21st century scholars program that offers all students a scholorship, his experience as an seceratary of state, a two term governor, and a two term senator, as well as the strong and important region that he pulls in the election, feel free to rebutt this statement with anything that any of the other candidates have done, ie: Hillary, Gulianni, McCain, Richardson, Obama etc. but this is a minor list of what Senator Evan Bayh has achieved and still is yet to achieve...
