    New York CityMayor Michael Bloomberg says an independent president has more chance at succeeding than a Republican or Democrat.

    He has said unequivocally he won't run in 2012, but during a forum at Harvard University on Monday he endorsed the idea of an independent in the White House.

    The Democrat-turned-Republican-turned-independent mayor says an independent would be better at bringing the two parties together on Capitol Hill.

    The billionaire mayor toyed with a third-party run in 2008.
