Gates for president campaign dropped

It was fun while it lasted, but Dilbert cartoonist Scott Adams and others in the ragtag Bill Gates for President campaign have given up.

The campaign started last November, when Adams mused about the possiblity on his blog and a group separately created the Billgatesforpresident.net Web site. They announced their decision yesterday via an e-mail that was posted at NetworkWorld and flagged by Slashdot:

We’ve tried…. We really have! We wanted to evoke political debate and to a certain extend we succeeded to do just that. On the other hand, we failed miserably to draw enough attention our way. Bill Gates probably noticed and read the website and our arguments, but he probably didn’t feel the drive needed to go for that presidential candidacy

Bill told me last summer that he wasn’t interested in being a politician, but you never know. Here’s a Gates for President post from November with all the links.
