He's told us once, he's told us a thousand times, but now he means it. Michael Bloomberg is not running for president.
AP: "I listened carefully to those who encouraged me to run, but I am not -- and will not be -- a candidate for president," he wrote. "I have watched this campaign unfold, and I am hopeful that the current campaigns can rise to the challenge by offering truly independent leadership."
Bloomberg had been weighing the decision heavily in recent days, aides said. The mayor himself says he'll potentially work to embrace a candidate who "takes an independent, nonpartisan approach, and embraces practical solutions that challenge party orthodoxy."
