Donald Trump says he is seriously thinking about a presidential bid. Of course, he’s said that in past election cycles and then stayed on the sideline. But this time maybe the developer/reality show star actually will throw his hair into the ring. The 2012 GOP field doesn’t have any clear-cut favorites, after all. He could run as the business-experience candidate.

He’d be like Mitt Romney, without the baggage of having signed a Massachusetts health-care bill that looks a lot like today’s Republican target, President Obama’s health-reform law.

We hope he runs. Can you imagine what great stories he would generate? We’re already making plans to cover the first GOP debate that includes him. Trump, plus maybe Sarah Palin, and perhaps Michelle Bachmann, too. Nirvana.
