Second biggest ego in country also thinking of running for president

Christian Science Monitor - Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg is considering a presidential bid for 2016.

Mr. Bloomberg, the billionaire founder of financial data and media company, Bloomberg L.P., is considering a presidential bid, according to The New York Times, because he's “galled” by Donald Trump’s popularity and Hillary Clinton’s increasingly leftward political bent.

Former Democratic National Committee chair Edward Rendell confirmed Bloomberg’s plans, “Mike Bloomberg for president rests on the not-impossible but somewhat unlikely circumstance of either Donald Trump or Ted Cruz versus Bernie Sanders.”

The very first thing I thought when I picked up the first news report about Bloomberg. Just one more symptom of the cultural malady endemic in our nation - we've always said, glibly, "money talks". In the case of the current crop of Republican egomaniacs, it talks so noisily you want to shut the entire speaker system down!
