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.
