The New York Times reports that former NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg is considering an independent run for president and would be willing to spend a billion dollars of his money on a campaign.
Mother Jones editor David Corn would rather see Bloomberg spend that cash on something else:
For $1 billion, @MikeBloomberg could send 5000 kids to college. Maybe he should do that instead of run for president

Progressives would discourage somebody who would take some of the most vigorous anti-gun, Big Nanny initiatives to the White House from running?
Not so fun when a billionaire dilettante wants to spoil your election, is it? https://t.co/nBudIuUd8M
