When the Democrats get down to like 5 candidates, if the expected winner is too far left to win the national (Sanders, maybe Warren, but I hope she’s long gone by then), a surprise reentry by Bloomberg seems about right to me.

He could win the general election, but he could not win the primaries, which is frankly a dumb way to operate.

i do like how he's handled the Schultz nonsense. And he knows people in NYC that probably know where Trump's got the bodies buried. But so short I dunno about that winning a general thing.

Why is it that I can’t even take Beto seriously?

Is it just me?

He's lost a step imo. Also, some don't want billionaires for president.

I'm having a hard time fathoming how this report didn't result in him being charged with crimes.

If obstruction of justice is a crime, and the report states and documents how Trump attempted to obstruct justice over and over and over, then that little substitution property of equality would state that Trump attempted crime over and over and over. Don't we still send people to jail for attempted crimes? Or is the fact that he hasn't been charged with a crime actually proof that he successfully obstructed justice?

Also what I can't understand is that even though the campaign attempted to contact the Russians, and the Russians attempted to influence the election, there wasn't enough evidence to prosecute because as far the investigation showed, no one from Trump's camp actually asked the Russians to do what they were doing? Whereas I know for certain that if my car is crashed, and I'm found drunk a block away, I'm going to get charged with DUI even if there was no evidence I was ever in the car.

You beat that DUI rap easy.

ps They're invoking the imaginary You Can't Indict a Sitting President law, which hardcons with dads who hated them love so much.
