Bloomberg Makes the Case for His Experience

Though New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg regularly denies any interest in running for president, he certainly sounded like he was making the case at a speech last night, the New York Observer reports.

Said Bloomberg: "I have my own army in the NYPD, which is the seventh biggest army in the world. I have my own State Department, much to Foggy Bottom's annoyance. We have the United Nations in New York, and so we have an entree into the diplomatic world that Washington does not have."

He also highlighted his "outsider" credentials: "I don't listen to Washington very much, which is something they're not thrilled about. We have every kind of people from every part of the world and every kind of problem."
