David Broder expresses some enthusiasm for a Mike Bloomberg presidential candidacy in today's Washington Post, but I'm sticking with my theory that that's all going to end the minute Bloomberg makes any statement about the Iraq War that Dick Cheney and Joe Lieberman would disagree with. I don't care what Broder says, for him this isn't about electing people "who will attack the problems facing the country -- the war in Iraq, immigration, energy, health care -- and not worry about the politics," it's forming a Lieberman Party to replace the icky Democratic Party as America's other major political organization. If Bloomberg's not heading in that direction, Broder's going to drop him like a hot potato.
