    If he does, how will he impact the election?

    I could see Bloomberg running and I am almost certain that Ron Paul will run.

    Not really sure about that one since he seems to be a moderate. It depends on the nominees. If Giuliani runs against any Democrat, I would guess an even split. If a Thompson or Huckabee gets the nomination, my guess is he would hurt the Democrats more. That is all just a guess. The lines are not very well defined this election.

    Assuming that both Paul and Bloomberg run would they cancel each other out in a way? Paul taking votes away from the GOP and Bloomberg taking them away from the Democrats?

    Depends on the nominees. If Obama and Huckabee are the Gen Elec candidates, then the "center" is pretty covered. Where does Bloomy position himself then? Bloomy is Rudy without the smile. So I can't see social conservatives going for him. Dems aren't likely to like him. The "independent" vote is a toss up. Depends on what happens tomorrow in NH, too

    I very seriously doubt that Ron Paul will run in the general election.

    Bloomberg would be a very interesting candidate. As long as Obama is riding high in saddle I think that Bloomberg will stay on the sidelines. He doesn't want to be run over by that fast moving political train.

    February 5th is shaping up to be the biggest day we have had in this country politically in a long time.
