Bloomberg campaign downplays report he is considering Hillary Clinton as running mate

Dana Mathewson

From Fox News, so you know there's some credibility both ways. Notice that he is "downplaying" it but not dismissing it outright.
Billionaire Mike Bloomberg's presidential campaign on Saturday downplayed a report that he is considering 2016 Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton as his pick for vice president.

The Drudge Report, citing a source close to Bloomberg’s campaign, reported that Clinton was under consideration after internal polling found that a Bloomberg-Clinton ticket would be a "formidable force.”

The conservative news aggregator, which came to prominence in the 90s for first reporting the Monica Lewinsky scandal, reported that Bloomberg would consider changing his residence to a home he owns in Colorado or Florida, "since the electoral college makes it hard for a POTUS and VPOTUS from the same state.”

But the Bloomberg campaign quickly tamped down that report but fell short of denying it outright.

"We are focused on the primary and the debate, not VP speculation," Bloomberg communication director Jason Schechter said in a statement.

The spotlight has increased on Bloomberg in recent days as he has shifted up the polls. He entered the race late -- and is skipping the Iowa caucuses, New Hampshire primary, Nevada caucuses, and South Carolina primary --the four early voting states that kick off the nominating calendar in order to focus on the Super Tuesday states in March.

As the newsboys used to yell, back in the days when boys used to hawk papers on the street, "Extra, Extra! Read all about it" right here: https://www.foxnews.com/politics/bloomberg-campaign-downplays-report-he-is-considering-hillary-clinton-for-vp

I have my doubts, and mainly because I think Little Mike has at least a normal amount of self-preservation instinct. And he's certainly considered this: If he were to agree to this, and (God forbid) the ticket should somehow wind up beating Trump in November, just how long do you suppose President Mike Bloomberg would live before suffering a fatal attack of Arkancide?

1 It would be a dreadful idea; she'd be trying to undermine Bloomkopf at every turn if they won. And nobody likes Hillary anyway, so she wouldn't add much of anything to the ticket. There really is no upside to Bloomkopf, except staying alive. You know how those stray bullets seem to find people the Clintons' do not like...

2 What is stunning to me is that Barack Obama is making commercials for Bloomberg. I always knew he was a sellout and was in politics entirely for the purpose of becoming wealthy, but I am a little surprised by how quickly he became so open about it.

3 Yeah, Bill; he's a low down skunk, no two ways about it!

4 Remember the song from "Cabaret:" "Money, money, money makes the world go around. . ." And Little Mikey has more than enough to spread around. Let him. If he wants to risk Arkancide, it's a free world.

5 I certainly wouldn't shed a tear for so stupid and arrogant a man as one thinking he can do business with the she-devil.

6 If they do decide to dance together, it'll sure be fun watching them argue over who gets to lead. Be sure to stock up on popcorn!

7 She will definitely insist on wearing the pants in THAT political family!
