For the major parties, a Bloomberg run could be their worst nightmare.
The two consultants, Douglas Bailey and Gerald Rafshoon, told reporters Tuesday that Bloomberg’s name recognition, independent political affiliation and personal fortune make him unusually well positioned to break the partisan gridlock in Washington. “Michael Bloomberg, if he runs,” said Bailey, “will be elected president of the United States.”
Maybe. But tell me, how could someone that neither party is beholden to be able to break gridlock? It could just as easily be that both parties gang up on him and he has no allies. And for someone who claims to be centrist, we still have no idea what his views on the issues are.
