Will he- Won't he?

An uneventful day at the City Chambers turns my eyes instead to an event over the water, the so called Super Tuesday.

My New Year prediction was that New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and potential Independent Presidential Candidate would stand. Why? Well because he would see that Barack Obama had captured the mood for change but wouldn’t himself be seen as able to deliver it and Hillary’s past would be seen as a more of the same to a greater extent than her gender would be a change in the White House whilst John McCain would suffer ageism and the anti republican backlash.

It seems he is still not decided but is still asking the question, but that the Super Tuesday result may have the answer for him, especially if whoever wins on the democratic side does not do so decisively.

I think his entrance would be good even though, in the end, I doubt I would have voted for him but anything that challenges the political status quo in the USA elections is a good thing.
