Draft Bloomberg, 2008

Another Mayor of New York? What?

No, don't draft Michael Bloomberg to win (each letter is a different link). Draft him because it will finally take votes away from Republicans, for once. Damn you Nader.

Although, it is a tough call to tell whose race his candidacy as an independent will affect more. He is, and always has been, essentially a Democrat. But as a Republican he was popular - amongst other Republicans. And just as these "independents" and "moderate republicans" still voted for Bush in 2004, so too will they vote for as close to a Republican as they can - again. Bloomberg can easily steal all the disappointed Ron Paul voters, and that small difference could mean a landslide victory in states like Florida and Ohio, which have been so close the last two elections.

We'll see what happens in time. Vote Blue in '08.
