So NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg switched from Republican to "unaffiliated" yesterday. First let us celebrate one less Republican in the world. Bloomberg of course, didn't have what you would can a deep attachment to the GOP, having joined the party in 2001 so he could run in an easier primary in the Mayor's race.

Of course everyone is speculating that Bloomberg intends to run for President as an independent. He could spend billions on a race. Think of a less nutty Rose Perot. That could really scramble up the race.

It would be quite interesting if he ran as an independent. Opinion seems divided on whether he would help the Republican or the Democrat. I think it would be terrific if he won, not because I particularly like him (I know little about him), but because the two-party duopoly certainly needs a lot of shaking up.
