The Donald huffed and puffed and roared some mighty roars. He made a lot of people nervous, but today he said no, he won't run for president. Being rich and famous and being on television a lot is more fun than being POTUS. Of course, he's probably right.
"I have decided not to pursue the office of the Presidency," his statement says. "I maintain the strong conviction that if I were to run, I would be able to win the primary (actually, Mr. Trump, there are several) and the general election....Ultimately, however, business is my greatest passion and I am not ready to leave the private sector."
Well, that's about what guys who don't run always say, of course. My own feeling is that voters would have looked at Trump and shouted "You're fired!" Never mind, it's over.
Fate is sometimes kind. I still would like to have seen what Marine One's rotor wash might have done to that hair.
