Mike Bloomberg: The Incredible Shrinking Candidate

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

The whole Las Vegas debate offers an astonishing indictment of the current Democratic Party that a guy like Mr. Bloomberg can rocket to the top of the heap without a single day of actual campaigning and in spite of his political record. To understand just how devastating this crack-up of the Democratic Party is, consider this: The only candidate other than Mr. Bloomberg who has a shot at the nomination refuses to actually join the Democratic Party. Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont is a “Democratic Socialist.” Even now since Mr. Bloomberg officially switched his party registration to “Democrat,” he is a curious candidate for the party to run against President Trump in November.
