Bloomberg Says He's Not Running
Alright, Bloomberg says he is not a candidate, and that people are jumping to conclusions about why he changed his party registration from Republican to undeclared. Fair enough. We should simply ignore the fact that he is touring the country raising his profile.
There's something to be said for making the committment, doing all the hard work in 2007, and putting yourself out there instead of waiting until the masses beseech you to come into the race late as a savior. I am starting to feel this way about Gore, although I understand why he doesn't want to jump in now, if ever. But despite my lack of enthusiasm for this field of Democrats, it appears that I'm just going to have to make a choice for better or worse and support one of them now instead of waiting for something better.
