    and I would really doubt he'd want the job.  He's an investor and really successful.  He's also getting up there in years.  I don't believe he'd want to take on all the political crap associated with a government post.  Though I wouldn't mind him taking Rmoney and the rest to task for vulture capitalism.

    •  I think he is in his altruistic phase of life. (2+ / 0-)

      I think he genuinely wants to leave this world a better place and wants his legacy to be one of benevolence rather than greed.  I don't think he (or Pal Krugman) has a chance of being nominated nor do I think he would take it if it was offered but I sure would like to see someone in that role that was thinking more about our country and the vast majority of its population rather than a 400 or so mega-wealthy social aristocracy.
