NPR's Robert Smith just created a soothsaying tool for Election 2008 — Candidate Bingo. Smith says he wanted a new way to tell whether a particular person was or was not about to run for president starting with New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg. He writes:

I made up a BINGO card with all the attributes you see in candidates these days: an overwhelming desire to kiss babies and shake hands, the verbal tic of always mentioning "change" and the excessive quoting of John F. Kennedy, or Reagan, depending on your political bent. I followed Bloomberg around for the week and marked off the squares. And let's just say, I never yelled BINGO.
