[NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg] look like the most viable third-party candidate since Teddy Roosevelt. But Bloomberg will come up short, as he comes in for withering attacks from both Democrats and Republicans. He and Clinton will split more than 50% of the votes, but Arizona's maverick senator, John McCain, will end up the country's next President.
There a bit of revisionism Atrios missed making fun of: Business Week erasing Ross Perot's 1992 run. According to a Time/CNN poll in May 1992, Perot led with 33 percent, followed by Bush with 28 percent, and Clinton with 24 percent. Before he flaked out and dropped out (before dropping back in), Perot had an excellent chance to win. Which Teddy Roosevelt did not.an interesting read from Jan. 2007.
