New Rule, Bill Maher style

by Nicholas Beaudrot of Electoral Math

No speculation about Mike Bloomberg's hypothetical Presidential campaign until he says something positive about the idea of running for President. So far he's said he's excited about using the last 900+ days as mayor effectively; that he's "done the government thing"; that his next job will be in philanthropy; and that he could forsee running for President if everyone else died. This does not sound like anyone else running for President; even Al "I'm not running" Gore has more positive things to say about the idea of a campaign.

This whole Bloomberg affair is horse race journamalism at its worst. If the press devoted as much ink existing candidate's ideas about what to do in Iraq as they have to Bloomberg, we would all be better off. I sometimes wonder whether people don't believe politicians because they too often rely on white lies and half-truths, or because the press assumes everything they say is a white lie or a half-truth.

Eh. I think the Bloomberg coverage reflects two things - the media's lack of excitement with the current 18(!), which is itself a reflection of much of the torpor in the electorate and b) the fact that independent runs, and in particular a run by Bloomberg, look interesting from the vantage point of where we are at now. The longer term question, I think, is how long Bloomberg can sustain a tease-y kind of interest without engaging, a la Thompson (and less so, Gingrich). I suspect, absent some other big move on his part in the next couple of weeks, there won't be much story to sustain a continued focus on the Mayor. And that may reflect some pretty impressive savvy on his part - he's rattled the cage just enough to show the rest of the field that there's interest in him, without any sort of commitment, leaving him pretty well positioned to do... well, whatever he pleases. And that, too, I think, is why political reporters are as impressed with his not running as they are. Now the question is who was rattled, and why.

i think the media coverage says that its not everyday that a billionaire tries to buy the presidency.

My money is on bloomberg trying to vy for Clinton/'s senate seat if she wins

i think the media coverage says bloomberg doesn't want to be a lame duck for the remainder of his term ... running for pres is a great way to stay important.

I don't believe the hypothesis that the political consulting industry is trying to promote a Bloomberg run for its own financial gain. But I do like it.

I think it's more that the press is hyping it out of laziness, and because a third-party campaign would increase the number of people reading the news.
