    Here it is-----at CNN.com if you want to link:



    Washington (CNN) - Donald Trump says he's now flirting with the idea of running as an independent candidate should he fail to win the Republican presidential nomination, a move that, however farfetched, threatens to draw crucial support away from the eventual GOP nominee.

    and they said America would NEVER elect a black man President....Trump is going to be a factor, laugh all you want...He could be another Ross Perot,he could also be the king maker if he drums up enough support and throws that weight behind someone else...the media loves him and the American public has shown that the Presidential elections have become popularity contests, not who is most qualified

    If he ran as an independent he will take alot of votes away from the Republican pretender er contender and give the election to Obama.

    There is no way Trump will run as an idependent when it comes down to it.

    His ego is too big that if he does not get the Republican nomination he will run as an independent.

    He will threaten to run as an Indy but he knows you need the weight ($$$$$) of the Rep Party to get elected...the same goes for the Tea Party,they may have political clout and influence but money determines the outcomes of elections..cold hard fact

    He will force the Republicans to ask themselves do you REALLY want to unseat BHO, and at what price

    I think he forced Romney to come out earlier than he wanted to, I think he will smoke out the other contenders and pretenders

    Christie has been pretty adamant about NOT running. If hee has POTUS aspirations, I'd say that he'd have a better chance if he can get NJ straightened out first. He's young enough to wait for 2016.

    While voters are focused on jobs and economy, there is no question that some international savvy is also needed. The present POTUS did not have that, and it has not worked out too well. Not sure how Christie would be on that scoresheet.
