Is Michael Bloomberg about to throw his hat into the ring?!
The former mayor of New York City said on Monday that he's considering running for President — so it looks like we might be adding another to a very crowded field!

Speaking to Financial Times, Bloomberg wouldn't fully commit to a run yet, but he did tease it pretty hard:
"I'm listening to what candidates are saying and what the primary voters appear to be doing."
He also noted how he'd have to start getting really serious about running by early March, if he chooses that route, or else he'd be starting too late to mount a serious charge against Hillary Clinton and the rest.
Maybe even more important than his trying to figure out whether to enter the race, the media mogul had nothing but bad things to say about the race as it's currently constructed:
"I find the level of discourse and discussion distressingly banal and an outrage and an insult to the voters."
Worth about $39 billion, Bloomberg isn't exactly hurting for campaign cash, if he decided to run — and he appears to be willing to spend more than $1 billion of his own money to do it!

With Hillary and Bernie lookin' strong, and the GOP a total clown show, all we can say is… Good luck, Mr. Bloomberg.
Might be a good time to switch parties?
