Bloomberg's not running, but may endorse....

New York City Mayor Bloomberg is once and for all not running for president.

Bloomberg is likely not running because the two presumptive nominees, Barack Obama and John McCain, each have a history of appealing to independents and finding a middle ground, leaving little room for a centrist independent.

However, Bloomberg has left the door wide open to support a candidate who appeals to his pragmatic, non-partisan way of solving problems. While McCain's past actions suggest he could be that candidate, Obama's rhetoric and approach, combined with McCain's tack to the right over the past few years could lead Bloomberg to endorse Obama at some point in the next few months.
