    He might get two percent of the vote if he's lucky and runs a great campaign. If the advisers aren't just going to toady to the billionaire, they'll tell him to forget it.

    It would be interesting, but I don't think he would do well.

    He's not very charismatic. He's largely unknown to most people. He's 73-years-old.

    And, as the Times points out, his anti-gun, pro-Wall St. positions will turn off voters on the left and the right.

    He's a social liberal (pro-choice and extremely anti-gun) with some law-and-order instincts and pro-business mentality. He's also a thin-skinned elitest at times.

    Trump. Hilary. Every Bush. Thin skinned.

    I think he'd do quite well. And I think the GOP would waltz to the presidency.

    Bloomberg vs Carson. Hopkins vs Hopkins.

    Where do three mayoral terms rank on the entry-level scale?

    More importantly: What's his opinion on Lena Dunham?
