Donald Trump, the billionaire New York real estate magnate, did contemplate running for the U.S. presidency in 2000 under a third party ticket, but
decided not to run citing problems with the party (source: CNN
His new NBC show The Apprentice
has been wildly popular, and he's truly become a household name in its wake.
Could he be brewing new thoughts about getting the presidency in 2008? He could try to run as a Republican, as now there's no clear frontrunner in
that primary race, or join another third party.
A celebrity such as Trump, backed with his business acumen displayed in his hit TV show, could be a major juggernaut in U.S. politics if he chooses to
run. Would it be an improper use of his newfound celebrity to turn it into a political campaign?
