Bloomberg - This is Getting Exciting!;_ylt=Aq4KtXOiqhrc1nI7n1X5vVCs0NUE

"NEW YORK - New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg has quietly been polling and conducting a highly sophisticated voter analysis in all 50 states as he decides whether to launch an independent presidential bid, associates said Wednesday."

Lewis Hamilton

I forgot to update Lewis Hamilton's bid for the F1 championship in his first year - well, he didn't do it. Ended up third in fact - behind the come-from-behind Kimi Raikkonen and last year's champ Fernando Alonzo. Lewis had a really crappy weekend for his final race, and well, it just didn't happen for him this year. But it was an exciting rookie season and he should have a good career.

Bloomberg - Who Does He Hurt More?

Well, more and more it sounds like he might throw in as a third-party candidate. Iowa is over now with Barak Obama taking the win for the Dems, and Mike Huckabee for the Repubs. If Obama and Huckabee keep up the wins, who would Bloomberg hurt more? I would say Huckabee. Many Repubs are not too thrilled with Huckabee's values-driven pro-non-rich-folk candidacy but would never ever vote for a Dem. So they'll vote for Bloomberg. Obama doesn't have the same worries as Huckabee, not coming from the party of the "Ownership Society" to begin with, so he won't lose votes he never had anyway. If it does end up being a Obama-Huckabee-Bloomberg race, Obama wins easily.

Happy New Year

Well, more and more news points to Michael Bloomberg, NYC's outstanding mayor, possibly making a third-party run - I thought he might run. Maybe I was right.

There's a "Flight of the Conchords" marathon on HBO Zone East now, very funny stuff!

I have somehow become a bit addicted to court shows on tv, not Court TV but Judge Judy, Judge Joe Brown, etc., and some of the litigants are downright scary!

Have a good 2008!
