the odds at the bookmakers for Zuckerberg to run as democratic candidate down to 16/1 (from 25/1) forecasting him at equal odds with Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson (http://thehill.com/blogs/in-the-know/341269-campaign-committee-for-dwayne-the-rock-johnson-filed-with-fec) what are peoples thoughts on this, and more importantly if there is any legitimacy in these rumours what is the general response?

Well, would he run for the Democans or the Republicrats?

More importantly, would his presidency combined with Facebook's virtual monopolization of electronic communication more places on Earth than I like to think of through ownership of Facebook Messenger *and* WhatsApp violate anti-trust laws? He'd have the most powerful media engine on Earth to create support for his policies.
