Yes, Michael, Bloomberg will win the nomination and hopefully kick Tromp to curb. Bernie is a natural born revolutionary, a profit, that points the way, but history tells us revolutionaries make poor leaders.

Now I have become a lot more excited about Mike than you. He has the bucks, experience and massive staff that will be required to sink the Titanic Trump. And of course It will also be nice if he can find a female minority running mate, which I think he will.

Mike will attract most Democrats except, perhaps, some angry Bernie supporters. He will also pick up Republican moderates that can’t stand the Donald, and Wall Street won’t be totally hostile to him.

He has already done a lot of good with his money with those who need a helping hand, and has pledged to give away most of his wealth along with our better billionaires.

And most of all he has the executive skills required to clean up the damage that Trump has done to the nation. So, at this particular time in history, what’s not to like about Bloomberg, except it would have been better if he were about 10 years younger.
