Mark Cuban open to running for president as an independent


https://www.cnbc.com/2019/05/14/mark...dependent.html

Sounds like he is very unlikely to run.

He adds he likes Biden but thinks no Dem running now can beat Trump.

I would add that no independent running now can beat Trump.

Oh, FFS... Who's next on the ticket? The ghost of Gary Coleman?

Fine. I'm running too. My platform will be banning "Don't Stop Believin''" and "Bohemian Rhapsody" from Karaoke for 2 years. Also, anything by Adele.

Cuban said the more than 20 Democratic candidates so far are all politicians.
This is not true. Andrew Yang is not a politician. Cuban didn't even bother to look at the list.

Quote:
Cuban said most of the Democratic proposals so far are just "headline porn." "I don't think they believe what they're proposing is passable," he said.
It might be the slightest bit interesting if he proposed a plan that would be passable.

Just how close are we to running the presidential election in a reality show format?

Trump possibly could have won if he ran 3rd party. Ross Perot was leading polls in 1992 before he went loony and quit the race.

Anyone who is running for President is, by definition, a politician.
