    Let's hope not. We don't need rich guys in office.

    Buffet is too old.

    Gates wouldn't want the job.

    Koch brothers would have no chance of winning -- too conservative

    Unpopularity of Walmart as a corporation (in spite of its popularity with customers) would rule out the Walton family.

    Zuckerberg is a no, because even if he did nothing wrong, there would be accusations that Facebook was manipulating its users to favor him and the backlash and controversy would destroy his chances.

      Thanks. So you are not ruling out Oprah Winfrey or Jeff Bezos, etc ?

    Why would they when they can just buy whoever becomes the president, along with the whole congress and all 50 governors?

    Update: Trump was going bankrupt. He had millions of dollars of loans from Russia. Bloomberg is running just because he’s scared of having to pay a tax if Bernie or Warren win the election.
