Ann Althouse provides additional reasons why leadership among the No Labels group will make Bloomberg President. http://althouse.blogspot.com/2010/12/no-labels-group-that-aspires-to-build.html

Her quote from Rush Limbaugh is amusing and probably on point:

Now, what is this? Well, let's take a look at who these people are. Mark McKinnon, Kiki McLean, Nancy Jacobson. I'll tell you what this is about. It is about money. These are political consultants. They need candidates. They need candidates running for office for whom they can take whatever the consultant gets, 5%, 10%, what have you. All three founders of No Labels are Democrats. They would love for Bloomberg to run for president. Why? Because he is a billionaire. Get him to run as an independent, maybe even third party. You know, sucker him into an independent run where they get the money, win or lose. Whether he wins or loses doesn't matter. They get the money. And he would lose. But there are always, as a friend of mine says, there are always political operatives who will tell a billionaire what he wants to hear....

This is very dangerous, David. If Brendan finds himself compelled to agree with Rush Limbaugh, he might have an aneurysm.

Sorry, I left a word out in my post. Should be "leadership among the No Labels group will NOT make Bloomberg President"
