THE GOOD OLD BOYS CIRCLE THE WAGONS:

Bloomberg Moves Closer to Running for President (SAM ROBERTS, 12/31/07, NY Times)

Buoyed by the still unsettled field, Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg is growing increasingly enchanted with the idea of an independent presidential bid, and his aides are aggressively laying the groundwork for him to run.

On Sunday, the mayor will join Democratic and Republican elder statesmen at the University of Oklahoma in what the conveners are billing as an effort to pressure the major party candidates to renounce partisan gridlock.

Former Senator David L. Boren of Oklahoma, who organized the session with former Senator Sam Nunn, a Democrat of Georgia, suggested in an interview that if the prospective major party nominees failed within two months to formally embrace bipartisanship and address the fundamental challenges facing the nation, “I would be among those who would urge Mr. Bloomberg to very seriously consider running for president as an independent.”


There's no surer way to prevent the election of the first black or woman than to give the Left a liberal white male alternative and guarantee a GOP victory.

Turnabout's fair play.

When I see the name involved in this, a comment by Roman Hruska keeps coming to mind.

He emphatically denied he was running for president when shown on the New Years EVE celebration in Times square. So someone is wrong.
