Moreso than even most senators, Mike Bloomberg is a guy that looks in the mirror and sees a president.

Right now, it looks like he and his handlers have done a masterful job of keeping the guy in the spotlight without any of the accompanying negative press that comes from being a candidate. In a way, it kinda reminds me of W's pre-2000 campaign. Theoretically W hadn't decided to run for president either.

It will be interesting how the press decides to report Bloomberg's partisanship. He's a lifelong Democrat who was nominally a Republican for 6 years, and is now being persuaded to run for president by iconoclastic Democrats. Hrm.
