Bloomberg for President

Now this sure puts an interesting spin on things.

Is the 2008 Presidential election going to be the election of a lifetime? Are we setting new precedents for how much money can or will be spent on a campaign?

Just when I thought I could study the democratic candidates and pick my favorite, I’m thrown this curve ball. I like what I’ve seen of Bloomberg so far and definitely feel comfortable supporting someone capable of generating and maintaining their own wealth. This is not even to mention that I do have an eye on a couple of the already declared Republican candidates. Guess I’ll just add this one to the list.

I do find it alarming, however, that the current trends in politics lead one to conclude that money talks. America certainly has many great leaders out there that could never in their lifetime think of amassing this much money just for one election campaign. Are we teaching our children that to run for President today you have to be a millionaire and to run 10-25 years from now you’ll have to be a billionaire? If not, I hope so.

With this in mind, ponder Brett Dennen’s appropriate song, “I Asked When.” So when is the revolution?
