Michael Bloomberg is back in the 2008 presidential picture, and one thing is for sure: There is a statesman-sized hole to fill in the center of American politics.

Bloomberg would be attractive to many American voters who, though fiscally moderate to conservative, don’t feel at home in the Republican Party because of social issues. These voters feel alienated by the Democrats’ politically motivated calls for immediate withdrawal because they realize that that is not a viable option. Bloomberg knows that, having called those Democrats “irresponsible.” In his Authors@Google talk from June, he clearly expresses a pragmatic view of Iraq based on facts, not politics or ideology.

“They’re a challenge to a rotten political culture that rewards sellouts and sycophants, and I’ve just always thought that we can do better … This is a challenge to candidates to move beyond photo-ops, to reject stage-managed town hall meetings, and to talk about how we’re going to use real accountability to solve real problems and take real questions from our constituents and give them real answers.”
