Bloomberg/Lieberman in 2008?

(The resemblence is uncanny!)

Do the math...

Michael Bloomberg has left the Republican party.

Joe Lieberman has left the Democratic party.

Will they become the Unity 2008 dream ticket? Maybe. Here's the story of the Mayor's defection, from the Associated Press:
NEW YORK - New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg on Tuesday switched his party status from Republican to unaffiliated, a stunning move certain to be seen as a prelude to an independent presidential bid that would upend the 2008 race.

[...]

"Although my plans for the future haven't changed, I believe this brings my affiliation into alignment with how I have led and will continue to lead our city," he said in a statement.

Despite his coyness about his aspirations, the mayor's decision to switch stokes speculation that he will pursue the White House, challenging the Democratic and Republican nominees with a legitimate and well-financed third-party bid.

[...]

The 65-year-old mayor has fueled the presidential buzz with increasing out-of-state travel, including New Hampshire last weekend; a greater focus on national issues and repeated criticism of the partisan politics that dominate Washington.
All I can say is...do it.

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEEEEEEASE DO IT!!!

Ummm,
Maybe a diversity problem. Both urban north-easterners and both Jewish. Could be a really hard sell to the real Murricans.

Very true. I just want them to do it for the entertainment value, not for any real chance of winning.

diversity problem, absolutely. Two short ugly annoying guys.

*before you go hatin', Mr FuzzyTurtle is of the Jewish extraction.. but he's not fugly like these two. He's a hottie IMHO*

I don't think Bloomberg is stupid, far from it. He wont run with Lieberman, too much baggage. He'd run to WIN, not play in the sandbox with Warmonger Joe.
