The two men were constantly rumored to be close to jumping into the presidential race, and with both appearing at the same event, Bloomberg couldn't help bringing it up.
"We actually talked about doing a joint ticket, but we couldn’t agree on whether it was reverse or straight alphabetical order [on the ticket]," Bloomberg said as Biden laughed and clapped on the stage.
The presidential campaigns of both major parties have taken many turns. Hillary was supposed to have more than enough pledged delegates at this time of the campaign to have a lock on the nomination with the convention only being a coronation. Then along came a self-proclaimed Socialist and many in the Democrat Party (Marxist/Progressive) felt even more at home. It is not that Hillary does not proclaim socialist ideas but Bernie openly states he is a socialist.
Hillary’s shady past is also coming home to haunt her. Even though Hillary has escaped being indicted in the past, her constant scandals have left their mark. When the public is asked what word comes to mind when they think of Hillary we learn the most common words are things like liar, untrustworthy, and synonyms of these terms.
Nobody who took any time to understand the Benghazi fiasco ever believed Hillary was being honest with the American public. When she explained what a wonderful job she had done in the front of the committee proving she was totally honest it was like OJ Simpson saying he was totally exonerated when the jury said he was innocent. Maybe two dozen people and the jury believed OJ was innocent and about the same number of people believed Hillary was honest.
Her server story also has more holes in it than Bill’s claim of not having sex with that lady. Hillary still says she does not know she is being investigated and yet we learn that 147 FBI agents are involved in the investigation that includes an investigation of Hillary mishandling top secret information. The only element of Hillary’s story that is consistent is her inconsistency. We know that people involved in the case have been granted immunity, Hillary’s top aids will be questioned, and Hillary herself will be questioned.
The Democrats (Marxist/Progressives) are becoming very concerned. Will they have a self-proclaimed socialist or an indicted nominee? The strange part is that this scenario has been before them for at least 6 months. It is hard to believe that the scenario has not been discussed behind many closed doors.
The question Bloomberg asked is one solution to the problem the Democrats (Marxist/Progressives) face. All indications are that Hillary will be indicted, but the timing is flexible. Bernie cannot win. Biden/Bloomberg or Bloomberg/Biden could be nominated or the whole situation could be in such disarray that Obama will have to postpone the election for the good of the nation.
