Wow, you see him entering the race? I mean I agree, he would be formidable.

On December 31, 2007, Bloomberg stated unequivocally, live on the Dick Clark New Year's Eve TV Show, that he was not going to run for president in 2008.

Yeah, but he's meeting with a bunch of people soon where he's expected to announce a third-party candidacy. The group is a mix of moderate Republicans and Dems who are conncerned over the divide in American politics. They just had a big deal about it on CNN's the Situation Room today.

because the democratics once again fail to put forth a candidate that can get the masses excited, thus lose votes to a viable third party candidate?

yes i read that... but it still comes back to the fact that the democrats are a splintered party whom are unable to find a candidate to truely energize the base and thus are very vulnerable to a viable third party candidate.

I don't think this is true this time around. The Republicans are the ones who can't come up with a candidate to energize any large faction, much less the base.

That said, Bloomberg would certainly cost the Dems votes.

Bloomberg could cost Republicans some votes as well. He is liberal on some issues, conservative on others.

I think that's true to a degree. I know many people (including some in here, if I'm not mistaken) who like Obama or Edwards, but don't like Hillary at all and wouldn't vote for her. That's probably not real good for a party.

And how many people like McCain but hate Romney? How many people like Ron Paul and hate the rest of them? How many people like Huckabee and can't stand Giuliani? If anything, it's the Republican field that's a total mess.

And that's also true. The Republican electorate is divided. But the Democrats are too. It's not like the Democratic base is all one big happy family that is completely 100% satisfied with Hillary.

The top 5 Republicans seem to each have between 10 and 20% support - that seems pretty fractured to me. I think it'll largely be a "lesser of two (or three) evils" election for many in November.

Yeah if I were to make a judgement as to which party is more fractured at this moment, it would definately be the Republican party. They don't have much to unite them. They aren't united on the war, they aren't even united on Jesus this time around, they have very little holding them together... except hating men who love other men.

What are you talking about? With the exception of Ron Paul, most Republicans still support this war and the idea of combating terrorism rather than running away.

And please explain your Jesus comment. I don't know what that means.

I think he means that Mitt Romney's Mormon, and it's caused a stir among the party.
