Michael Bloomberg Considers Asking Hillary to Be Running Mate

In Brief:

2020 Presidential hopeful Michael Bloomberg says he’d consider having Hilary Clinton be his vice-president.

The Background:

CNBC reports:

According to Drudge, in such a partnership Bloomberg would change his official residence from New York to Colorado or Florida. The constitution suggests there may be limitations in both members of a presidential ballot residing in the same state.

Not that one should ever take what a Democrat says as truth, it’s worth noting that when Ellen DeGeneres asked Hillary Clinton if she’d run as a VP in 2020, Clinton said, “Well, that’s not going to happen. But no, probably no.”                                                                

Why It Matters:

Just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse…

Notable Quotes:

“We are focused on the primary and the debate, not VP speculation.”
