The whole bunch are such a Motley Crew Eddie, that I have nothing constructive to say.

Except that America deserves better, much better.

Please...we are getting exactly what we deserve.

From what I gather, Bloomberg supports Hillary, and doesn't intend to mount a campaign unless she doesn't get the nomination. Perhaps that is not true, or things are in flux as we speak. (Or I'm just wrong.)

To me. if he were in the race now, he'd hurt Hillary and Sanders both by splitting the moderate/liberal vote. He wouldn't take away anything from Cruz, he's too liberal and he's not Christian. I doubt he'd pull much from Trump. Trump has the Know-Nothing vote locked up.

And what shall we call the Hillary voters, the Know-Something vote?

How about the Know-What-TPTB-Want-You-To-Know Vote?

As I predicted, Bloomberg won't run. I expect this has a lot to do with the expectation that Hillary has the Democratic nomination pretty well nailed  down.
