Despite Michael Bloomberg’s unsubtle hints, there are some people still trying to put him on the ballot for the 2008 presidential election.
According to an email I got from Parker, they’re less interested in Bloomberg as the technocratic, nonpartisan mayor, and more into Bloomberg as a recognizable name for their one-issue agenda.
Here’s what she wrote back:
Yes. We did hand in over 10,000 signatures to get Mike on the ballot in Virginia for US President. We need a Rail champion to take this issue nationwide. Michael Bloomberg could do that.
We need more Rail candidates on the ballot nationwide. We encourage your readers to join us: to get on the ballot and advocate for high-speed Rail nationwide, for cleaner air and cleaner water.
