Resolved Question: Should Michael Bloomberg
wouldn't he be the best candidate for the job? he has business-mind and leadership to run a big corporation, he has education and experience as a mayor in one of the busiest cities in the world, New York City. He also has billions in net worth and used his own money to run campaigns and he doesn't have to cater to Oil Companies or other non-sense that corporations keep pushing for years after years. i'd rather him than Obama, who knows nothing but compromises and asks for donations from big corporations to run his campaigns and then 4 years later, writing a book about being a dumbass.
