Trump for President?

Will his first order of business be making everyone say "you're fired"? Real-estate mogul and reality-television star Donald Trump said on Fox News Tuesday that he's "seriously considering" running for president in 2012. "I'm totally being serious because I can't stand what's happening to the country," Trump said. He elaborated by saying he felt America has "lost global respect." Although Trump said he has been approached by the Reform Party to run several times, he said he would run on the Republican ticket. Time magazine recently reported somebody—Trump said he was not behind it—had been polling New Hampshire residents about possible 2012 presidential candidates, and there were dozens of questions about Trump. He called the results "amazing," and said he has the "common sense" to be president.
