QUESTION ASKED: Is He Crazy? Mike Bloomberg Considering Hillary Clinton as His Running Mate.

.
And this is what you get at Sludge.


Sources close to Bloomberg campaign tell DRUDGE REPORT that candidate is considering Hillary Clinton as running mate, after their polling found the Bloomberg-Clinton combination would be formidable force... MORE

DRUDGE has learned that Bloomberg himself would go as far as to change his official residence from New York to homes he owns in Colorado or Florida, since the electoral college makes it hard for a POTUS and VPOTUS from the same state... Developing..


EXCLUSIVE: BLOOMBERG CONSIDERS HILLARY RUNNING MATE

With this now added on.


MADAM VP: ‘I never say never because I do believe in serving my country’…
Clinton could get her revenge against Trump…
‘SHE WANTS BACK IN’…
The implausible ticket?
BETTING ODDS SOAR FOR MIKE GETTING NOMINATION…

As for who will eventually get the nomination, no one has a clue since actual policy has almost nothing to do with it. The only bit in common they seem to have is that they would each be a disaster, both domestically and across the world.

    An all-white Dem team?

    Outrageous!

    Little Mikey didn’t kill himself. Or, Sorry to hear about your suicide on November 9th. Signed Hillery if he wins.

  3. Nighthawk the Elder

    Apart from identity politics and divisive policies, what would a mini-Mike and Hitllery combo offer the American people?

    Perhaps mini-Mike would want to expand this little New York program of his.

  4. Beavis and Butthead, a winning combination. Mind you, the Democrat presidential nomination show is going to make for some great comedy one day. Something for South Park?

    Bloomberg-Clinton combination would be formidable force

    It is just a spelling mistake – force is spelled with an ‘A’ and not a ‘O’ so it should actually read as formidable FARCE.

    bwahahahahaha bwaahahahahahha BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHA

  7. Oh come on

    It’s exactly what America wants – another Hillary comeback!

    I know the ‘sensible’ Dems are desperately seeking a Plan B, but this is emphatically not it.

    They are out of their everloving minds LOL

    “to homes he owns in Colorado and Florida”

    What a good little Champagne Socialist he is.

    Bloomberg is running a year-long workshop on how not to run a presidential election campaign:

    1. Make it about — and only about — how much he he hates his opponent.

    2. Enlist the loser who lost to his opponent in 2016 as his running mate.

    3. Spend billions on advertising to convince a sceptical public this is a brilliant strategy.

    By November, Bloomberg will be as popular as gonorrhoeia — especially if the Dems have to fix their convention in July to stop Bernie.

    Imagine being so politically naive that you put yourself in a position where you are the only thing standing between HRC and the Presidency.

  11. Pete of Perth

    Sportsbet has Bernie at 2.60 and Bloomberg at 2.75 for presidential nomination

  12. FelixKruell

    Well that’s a sure fire way to give Trump another 4 years…

  13. nb

    Together they would stand tall. Bloomberg on Hilarity’s shoulders. If she stumbles, he tumbles.

    Trump must be walking around the White House with a permanent hard-on. Not one despised elitist opponent, but two.

    Bernie supporters will burn down the Democrat Convention, that’s as sure a bet as the fix is in to take the nomination away from Sanders.

  16. Judge Dredd

    I wonder what the Clinton crime family have on little manlet Bloomberg? The only challenge for him will be ensuring he is on a box to appear bigger than HRC during interviews.
    But in all seriousness, HRC wants the presidency bad and I expect a Bloomberg to hand the reigns over to her as the campaign goes on.

  17. Entropy

    Bloomberg certainly is crazy brave or ignorant. Anyway, he could win the nomination, then stand aside for his VP candidate after he had seen off the rest no?

    Going out on a limb here, but…

    Is it possible that Hillary has experienced a moment of self awareness and realised she’s just not electable in her own right?

    Perhaps the deal is that the Clinton crime machine makes sure the primary vote is rigged for mini-Mike, with Hillary and mini-Mike both deluding themselves (or at least hoping) that they can beat the Orange God-Emperor, and the two of them having a secret agreement that at some point President mini-Mike will step down to allow Hillary to be the First Woman President (and restore the Clinton Foundation fortunes).

  19. I think that Bloomberg does not want to be president at all. If he spent the sort of money he is burning by donating it to someone’s ampaign, all hell would break loose, but he is untouchable if he spends it on his own campaign. This is why his campaign does not extol his virtues ( despite these being very few) nor does he outline any policy, it is simply targeted at trump. The garden gnome just wants influence and he can’t get that with Trump. American politics is a farce to be reckoned with!

    And he found just the politician for whom everything is for sale.

    Not sure what issue any Trump supporter would have with this.
    Either way you’re going to have big spending statists and leftists in office.

  22. kneel

    “Either way you’re going to have big spending statists and leftists in office.”

    Sure, why not?
    The fact that one (the incumbent) is fighting the Deep State to (slowly) remove its death grip on the US economy, while the challenger wants to do the opposite and ramp up the socialism is irrelevant to you, right?
    It’s not pure right wing, therefore it’s left wing, right?
    I mean, it’s not like such a situation would be obvious to even the lowest info voter, right?
    Because, like all Cats bar you, none of them have a clue about politics, right?
    And they all should know that, because it’s so basic, right?
    Alas, not everyone has the info – time to get busy, Petey!
    Get on those Republican and Democrat sites and start edumacating them!
    I’m sure they’d all appreciate it as much as your fellow Cats do, so get to it!

    Competent individuals understand the concept of making the best decision available in real life situations.

    Faced with a choice between Mao tse Tung and John Howard, few of us would say “I won’t even bother to vote because neither of them is a pure-as-the-driven-snow “conservative” (or “libertarian”, or “Objectivist Randroid”)”.

    But there are, it seems, some people who are so intellectually deficient that they’re incapable of viewing a real life situation except in terms of cartoon like binary absolutist labels.

    Competent individuals understand the concept of making the best decision available in real life situations.

    On the other hand, you have morons with their heads stuck in the sand, like the troll, who ignore political reality, think there is a third option to vote for in the U.S. or Australia (there isn’t, unless you count the Greens in Australia).

    Meanwhile, the rest of us are pragmatic, and choose the lesser of two evils, because there are no options.

    @J D:

    “The only challenge for him will be ensuring he is on a box ……”

    As opposed to IN a box.

    Now theres a double ! Has the dwarf got a death wish ? Remember epstein .

  27. Tel

    Putting a little bit of vice, into the office of Vice President.

    Bloomberg is buying influence, at the last minute he will show what a gentleman he really is and open that door for Hillary. The feminist Dems, after decades of calling all men pigs, will suddenly love Bloomberg. Start with the biggest, most outrageous hypocrisy you can think of … then double it.
