Will Michael Bloomberg, whose third term as mayor of New York City ends in 2013, run for president in 2016?
Bloomberg's admirers, however, likely won't let the idea of a presidential run die.
Earlier this year, before Obama won re-election, New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman penned an entire editorial dedicated to convincing Bloomberg to run as an independent. Also this year, a site named "Draft Michael Bloomberg" called on Bloomberg supporters to rally the billionaire mayor to consider a campaign.
Speaking with HuffPost Live, Bloomberg's former deputy press secretary, Jordan Barowitz, doesn't rule out the possibility of Bloomberg mounting a presidential campaign in 2016. Watch above.
