    Michael Bloomberg is considering Hillary Clinton as a running mate, according to the Drudge Report.

    The top right-leaning news aggregator, citing sources close to the Bloomberg team, reported on Saturday that the former New York mayor is contemplating Clinton as a vice presidential running mate after his campaign's polling found the combination would go over well with voters.

    Bloomberg, a late entry to the Democratic race, has seen surging poll numbers despite not being on the ballot for the Iowa caucuses or the New Hampshire primary, the nation’s first litmus tests for those vying for the Democratic presidential nomination.

    Hm... what have we here?

    Jokes aside, would that be a serious development? I think so - this may make the ticket formidable, Hillary’s diehards would drop Sanders and the rest in a heartbeat.

    Against Trump? This too may be the strongest ticket we’ve seen till now.

    interesting...

    NEWSFLASH:

    Just in ....the Drudge report claims Mike Bloomberg is considering picking KILLARY as his running mate and if so, that would account for why we've seen her on Ellen and elsewhere so much lately.

    Was this the plan from the onset and why Bloomberg is trying to buy the presidency? He and she have always been friends so did he and Hillary cook this up just to get her in?

    Consider this, IF he wins, will he simply resign stating health reasons which will give her the presidency? Is that the plan? Sounds right to me.


    Otherwise knowing the death toll surrounding Hillary, this decision would make him a total idiot...I mean he might as well order his coffin before inaugeration.

    WoW, a conspiracies galore! Certainly possible, but why Mike would do his friend Hillary a billion dollars favor? What would he gain in return?

    Have you seen what he's given to former political campaigns? This would be a drop in the bucket for him.

    To secure her hit squad

    London bookies might want to start to ponder what Bloomberg's life expectancy might be....

    If he wants a female running mate, that's fine. But this female would be a mistake. Why not Klobuchar? She seems to be pretty popular.

    Well. Trump’s base needs no additional stimulus, do we?

    But make for the more entertaining campaign this surely will... I don’t mind watching Hillary being wheeled around and walked up and down the stairs again... and again :D

    He’d be better off picking Al Sharpton to heal his wounds with black voters.

    It would be awesome for the Dem Party; but less great for the ego-ridden Hillary. Still it WOULD be another opportunity for the Clintons to crank up their graft machine. The biggest problem, though, would be for Bloomberg if he won the presidency. Getting though four years while knowing that vice president Hillary Clinton has got his suicide note tucked away for safe keeping? Shudder!

    She did get 3 million more votes than trump. That was 3 trillion dollars ago.

    Bloomberg is spending huge amounts of money is has a good idea of how (and where) to run a campaign — something Hillary lacked. This round many of Bernie supporters that refused to vote in 2016 have said they would vote for whoever gets the nominee in 2020.

    I don’t like her or Bloomberg but it could be an interesting development.

    Here's another reason that backs up my theory...

    "General contribution limits were enacted in the Federal Corrupt Practices Act (1925). An amendment to the Hatch Act of 1939 set an annual ceiling of $3 million for political parties' campaign expenditures and $5,000 for individual campaign contributions."

    So friend to Hillary Clinton, Mike Bloomberg, found a way to get her into the presidency without risking being charged with campaign violations. She rides his coat tails into office and then he resigns due to bogus health reasons. Problem solved.

    But they still may hold their noses and vote against Trump... Conservatives did vote against Hillary, this poster including.

    I guess when you cannot win with majority opinion and have to force your agenda on an unwilling population the only way to succeed is hope your opponent is demolished by a failing system or cheat.

    It doesn't sound that crazy to me. It would help swing Clinton machine, and DNC establishment, Bloomberg's way.

    Besides, he could dump her at the convention and pick someone who would help mobilize the black base.

    If he winds, Bloomberg would have to dump Clinton the day after the election because she will want to be the center of attention.
