Michael Bloomberg OFFICIALLY has ruled out presidential run in 2008

I recieved this email a few minutes ago from Mayor Bloomberg or one of his staffers:
Thank you for your kind words - but I already have a day job, and it's the greatest job in the world!

I very much appreciate all the support I've been receiving. That said, I plan to spend the next two and a half years leading the City in the same nonpartisan way I have since the beginning of my first term; an approach which has allowed us to find common ground on tough issues and achieve real solutions. That's why I was hired, and by continuing to work together, we can make New York stronger and safer than ever.

Thanks again for taking the time to write to me.

Michael R. Bloomberg
