Barbour to Bloomberg: Don't run for prez

(CNN) – Republican Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour may or may not run for president in 2012, but he has an opinion about a possible presidential bid by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

He added a third party bid by Bloomberg would be "the best thing that can happen to President Obama."
