Trump loves what he's doing, but thinks "it could be fun" to throw his hat in the ring. I think it would be fun to watch Trump and Palin vie for the nomination. Can you imagine the debate? Trump has launched a website to test the level of interest in a Trump candidacy.

Why not Trump? He is the ultimate Corporate Hack, a perfect fit for the Repubs.

What a proud and dignified nation we are. A reality show Presidential race.

He has thought about this in the past and didn't come to be. I don't think anyone will take him seriously, but libs, have fun with this one. I know you will.

As opposed to Caribou Barbie? Yeah, she's real Presidential material. I would not vote for trump, but you cannot denounce his credentials and at the same time support Mrs. Wasilly.

I have a hell of a lot more respect for a self made billionaire than I do some community activist that has never built anything, never ran anything and has never accomplished anything tangible.

Big difference between Bush II (who inherited his wealth and power) and guys like Trump, Gates, Perot, etc... that did it on their own. You may not like then but you have to respect their accomplishments.

Now I don't know if I'd vote for Trump as he's a bit of a loose cannon but I have more respect for him than I do for someone who was born into power (Bush) or someone like Obama that comes from liberal academia and has little practical life experience.

He could not possibly screw up as bad as what we already have in office. He is Smart, Business Savy, and i think would do what is right for the Country, unlike what we have in office at present, who is someone with no business sense.

The good thing about Trump is that he would look at the bottom line ONLY. No namby pamby PC BS. No hopey changey.

Results would be the only thing that matter, not feeeeeeelings....

Trump says he wants to tax the hell out of Chinese goods coming here. That alone would get my vote.

All I hear on the news is how great the economy in China is doing and how bad the unemployment is in the US.

Finally somebody is paying attention.
