    I'd like to see him run. It will help Obama win re-election AND it will also show Trump he isn't as cool as he thinks he is.

    However, this is just another publicity stunt to keep his name in the news.

    "Ironically-I did the same thing a few years back."

    Chris, you ran for President as an independent?

    Crap, I missed that on the ballot. I'd have voted for you for sure!

    No wishing here. Just saying it could happen.

    @Missing- I was actually being facetious about Skybill's assertion that he would have voted for me.

    I person without a party is a eunuch. He doesn't stand for anything. Just drifts in the wind.
