16. I'm not trying to encourage anyone that way, either.

But, if he did run, I bet he would have no problem capturing anywhere from 1/5 to 1/3 of the popular vote, without even really trying. 34% could make him President Bloomberg in an evenly split election. Morsi won that way.

If he ran, he could pretty much dictate his terms and set off a bidding war between the other two candidates as the cost of his withdrawal and eventual recommendation. I'm sure he knows that, too. Just threatening to run might be the best investment he ever made.
