New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has suggested that an independent president might be a better choice for US citizens than any Republican or Democrat candidate, The Washington Post
reported on Tuesday.
Mayor Bloomberg, an independent himself, has considered running for president in the past but has said it is no longer on his agenda. Speaking at a Harvard forum, he said:
"I think actually a third-party candidate could run the government easier than a partisan political president because the partisan political president - yeah he's got half the votes, but he can't get the others - whereas the guy in the middle may very well be able to get enough across the aisle."
