The rumors have been around for months, but no thanks, Michael Bloomberg!
We do not need another aging billionaire muddying up the Democratic Presidential competition.
Bloomberg would have great trouble winning the White House, with his controversial record as New York City Mayor, and antisemitism would rear its ugly head, and the nation is not about to elect a New York City former Mayor, as most of the nation hates New York City, for no good reasons, but reality that hatred does exist.
The possibility of a brokered and divided Democratic National Convention is alarming, and would only help Donald Trump and the Republican Party.
It is time for narrowing of candidates, not broadening of the candidate pool.
If a moderate in place of Joe Biden is desired, it should not be Bloomberg, but more likely Mayor Pete Buttigieg, or Senator Amy Klobuchar.
Right now, a moderate ticket of Pete and Amy seems more likely, with their Midwest background, to have the opportunity to win the White House, certainly better than aging candidates reaching their 80s in a first term.
There will be plenty of time to evaluate Bloomberg over time, but first thoughts are, as stated above, no thanks!
