Report: Michael Bloomberg Probably Won’t Run for President

If there’s a third major candidate in 2016 presidential race, it probably won’t be Michael Bloomberg.

The odds of Michael Bloomberg running for president are “very, very low — almost zero,” a source close to Bloomberg told ABC News.

His decision, the source said, will likely come this week or next.

Our John Fund was skeptical all along. I noted his bid would probably hurt the Democratic nominee more: He’s the country’s most deep-pocketed, relentless advocate of gun control, the large-soda-banning face of the nanny state, and the man who declared, “I am telling you if there is a God, when I get to heaven, I’m not stopping to be interviewed. I am heading straight in. I have earned my place in heaven. It’s not even close.” 

But think of the slogans that will never be used!
