    Why won't Donald Trump run for president?

    A question that shal riddle the human mind for centuries...Why won't Donald run for President after his endless rants about being a great leader, a true conservative, and able to win BIG? After watching him kick the best man off the apprentice the other night....I have come to conclusion it's because he's afraid to lose. I believe his ego has become so large that losing to Obama would make a life like his unbearable. While his ego reminds him on a daily basis that he's smart, unstoppable, and powerful, deep down he realizes that obtaining public office is a long shot.... especially against Obama. Experiencing defeat would hurt his public standing and TV ratings.

    Probably because the job doesn't pay enough.

    The inevitable resounding loss would crush his ego.

    Because the republicans do not want to make it too blatantly obvious that they are trying to give Obama his second term.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    Didn't vote. You didn't list my answer.

    He won't run because he doesn't want to.

    Because he is not a complete idiot. He knows that he wouldn't have a prayer winning against Obama.

    I think America is amused and entertained by Trump, but I don't think much of America sees him as a leader. At least not the type of leader that would be needed to run a country.

    Sadly, he would probably do a better job than most politicians in the arena these days.

    Aside from some of the other replies here, he would never want to reveal his tax returns.

    This is the important stuff. We canít get lost in discrimination. We canít get lost in B.S. We canít get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    I, for one, am no more entertained by Donald than I am pro-"wrestling"..
    Both are new lows for quality of "entertainment".
    Thank God, that we have hundreds of good old movies on TCM.
    His ego covers up (more or less) his lack of intellect.
