What can Bloomberg’s billions buy? Can they buy Hillary Clinton?
Mike Bloomberg is considering making Hillary Clinton his running mate, a source close to his campaign has told Drudge Report.
Polling found the Bloomberg-Clinton combination would be a formidable force to take on Trump in the race for the White House, the source said.
Former New York City Mayor and Democratic candidate Bloomberg is said to be considering even changing his official residence from New York to Colorado or Florida – where he also has homes – because the electoral college makes it difficult for US president and vice-president to reside in the same state.
Not that sort of thing ever mattered to the Clintons.
But come on, would Hillary Clinton ever accept the humiliation of going from a nominee to becoming the second banana for an unlikable billionaire who bought a political campaign?
On the other hand, this is the only realistic way that Hillary Clinton could become the nominee of a presidential campaign.
And, once in office, well all sorts of things can happen. Like plane crashes or suicides in a D.C. park.
As a secondary motive, Hillary Clinton would love to bring down the Sanders campaign. And this would be one option.
Still if Bloomberg is willing to drop that kind of serious cash, why not just buy Obama? He can’t run again, but if he were to campaign with Bloomberg, the nomination would be his. How much could Barry cost? Bloomberg has blown through $400 million.
Offer Obama a billion. And then Bloomberg can lose to Trump. Or commit suicide in a plane crash in a D.C. park.
