Bill Richardson just dropped out.

ETA: wait, now a spokesman for him is denying that...






Regardless, I think he'd throw his support to Hillary.

It's official now, Richardson's dropping out.

I agree, his support goes to Hillary as his lips have been firmly planted to her rear this whole cycle.

Nope. He's United Church of Christ, I think.

Right. When in Chicago he regularly attends Trinity I believe. (My denomination is very closely related to the UCC)

I thought they were wrong about the Catholic thing.

I think it's a sure thing that he will run. Monkey wrench

NEW YORK (CNN) -- New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg has launched a research effort to assess his chances in a potential bid for the presidency, a source close to the mayor told CNN.

The source said data is being gathered but that the mayor -- who has been widely speculated as being interested in running for the White House as an independent -- has not yet begun analyzing that data, the source said.

The source, who is intimately familiar with the mayor's deliberations, said Bloomberg has set early March as a timetable for making a decision.

Bloomberg, a former Democrat who was elected to the mayor's office as a Republican, joined a panel of moderate current and former lawmakers earlier this week at the University of Oklahoma in Norman.

The group, made up of both Democrats and Republicans, called for a return to bipartisanship in government.

"What has changed is that people have stopped working together," Bloomberg said at the Monday gathering.

"Government is dysfunctional. There is no collaboration and congeniality. There is no working together and 'Let's do what's right for the country.' There is no accountability today ... no willingness to focus on big ideas."

Bloomberg, 65, was elected mayor of New York in 2001, two months after the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center, and re-elected in 2005.

A native of Medford, Massachusetts, with an MBA from Harvard Business School, Bloomberg made his fortune first working with Wall Street securities bank Salomon Brothers, then as founder of Bloomberg LP, a financial news and information service.

Says the guy considering running as a spoiler.

Apparently he's been too busy to pay attention to the level of real success of third party candidates in the US.

John Kerry is going to endorse Barack Obama rather than his VP buddy 4 years ago.

Anyone think Kerry's endorsement helps in any way? He isn't exactly the face of a successful presidential campaign. If he really wanted to help Obama, why not endorse him before NH, rather than after? Kerry being from a neighboring state may have caused NH to turn out a little differently.

That's ok

Kerry has a history of being "for" something
then "againt" it.

Once we get a couple more primaries over
we will see who or what he is "for", then.

Obama ought to request a private meeting with Edwards...

Offer him a guarantee of the VP spot should he(Obama) win the nomination in exchange for his(Edwards') dropping out ASAP.

Obama needs Edwards' votes.

Edwards would never go for VP again, and I don't blame him. He does need to drop out though.
