Likelyhood of a Bloomberg Campaign
Over the holidays I spoke with family and friends living and working in the beltway and they seemed to have a surprising consensus that if Hillary is the nominee, then Bloomberg will not run for president. They seem to believe that because Mayor Mike's personal friendship with the junior senator he will hold back his national ambitions and desire to rollback hyper-partisanship that is occurring in DC, but if a less polarizing candidate like Obama or Edwards he will jump in. It is my opinion that Bloomberg is probably going to jump in the race no matter who the nominees of the parties are.
