21. We shall see...

He might be acceptable to some TeaPartiers. Republican and Neo Lib Dems would probably find him acceptable. Any Republican up-and-comer would probably be thrilled as his VP. It would depend on how much the Bush family wants Jeb in there for 2016. So...it would be tricky for him how to navigate to run as a Repug.

Still leaves the Democratic Party "Third Way" with a challenge. Do they put someone up who appeals to Liberal Left if Bloomberg runs as a Repug...playing the to the Wall Street Crowd? Or, could Bloomberg decide to pre-empt and declare early as an Independent and play both Repugs and Dems against each other as to which candidate they run against him. Would the Libertarians and Indies along with disillusioned Dems and TeaPartiers find Bloomberg appealing enough that it could throw both parties into disarray with early pre-primary polling going heavily his way.

I'm just running through ideas here... throwing stuff out.
