A Bloomberg aide lays out the criteria for a Bloomberg Independent run for President in 2008.
First, both party's nominees need to have unfavorable ratings at least in the 40s. Second, 70 percent of the nation needs to think the country is headed in the wrong direction, as is the case currently. We're there right now. Third, at least 60 percent of those polled need to have their minds open to a possible third-party bid. Lastly, 20 percent to 25 percent need to be open to the notion of President Mike Bloomberg. If those four criteria are met, Bloomberg will throw his hat into the ring.I don't know if I'm in favor of such a run or not, because I'm not really sure which party he would mostly pull his votes away from. As all over the map as he is, it could be both, I guess.
