Twilight Empire

Well, the Michael Bloomberg factor has been inserted into the 2008 race. I am extremely tired, but I can say my interest lies in who he draws votes away from. Will he draw from Hillary instead of Mitt, or McCain instead of Obama. The signals are mixed at this time. Initial polling seems to say Bloomberg turns more states blue than he does red in three way match-ups. Yet Republican pollsters seem to be rejoicing, convinced that this means a sure thing for the Party of Lincoln. For a quick aside though, why is the Republican party known as the Grand Old Party (GOP) despite the fact that the Democratic party is an older organization? But does Bloomberg want to be remembered at the Ross Perot, or the Ralph Nader of this election? Have I used the question mark much to often in this post? Yes.
