      Nice to see the Dems now have 2 non-Democrats vying for their nomination.

      Bloomberg knows best -- he'll tell everyone exactly how to behave. A small sippy cup containing an approved beverage with a non-plastic straw for every adult.

          Not quite the leader he fancies himself, eh? More like a ruler if you ask me.

            Bloomberg is really boring from the cliches like "join Team Bloomberg"; "I'm fighting for you" etc to his boring style and delivery. Trump can cut through all the p.c. mumbo jumbo and speak directly to the American middle and working class. He can do that like no other presidential candidate on the Democratic stage today and that obviously includes Michael Bloomberg.

            So if you want to vote for another do nothing Democratic candidate who will complicate your life with more regulations and who tries to trick you into thinking he plays baseball on the middle ground then cast your hopes and dreams with Michael Bloomberg.

            Bloomberg can't win the democrat nomination.....all he'll do is highlight the craziness of the party. So glad he jumped in

              Of course he can't win the Democratic nomination; the Democratic power structure wants a radical socialist, feminist or gay person. It doesn't take Michael Bloomberg to highlight the craziness of the party to most of us and I'll doubt he will wake up any brain dead Democrats.

              The so-called Democratic debates are a love fest. Bloomberg will force some needed tension into the debate but in the end he's kind of like Louisiana and a 70 year old woman ----everybody knows what's down there but nobody gives a shyt.

                They way their debates are structured as far as eligibility goes, Bloomberg won't make the cut. Currently, the DNC has mandated that candidates (in addition to being the choice of X number of polled persons) have 65,000 unique donors, with a minimum of 200 unique donors per state in at least 20 U.S. states. Bloomberg is self funding his run. Of course it is the DNC, so changing the rules in the middle of the game is not only possible; it is highly likely.

                  Bloomberg cannot possibly win the democratic primary:

                  1) He's a Billionaire

                  2) He is an ex republican mayor

                  3) and worst of all he is a White Dude.

                      Not all Democrats are hard left socialists, and many of the voting public has been yearning for a saner middle ground candidate. Bloomberg provides that. The question then becomes, will it split the party, or bring it back to unity closer to the middle and more competitive with Trump?

                      For these reasons, I see him as the Democratic Trump (not in terms of direction, but qualifications). It would be a bit funny to see a DemTrump enter into the Dem run offs, but only mildly amusing. Moreover, I'm waiting to see how the party reacts and what it does in the long run up to the nomination. The Dem machine wants it's own, not some late comer like Bloomberg, so I really don't expect him to get much traction regardless of what he spends - the Dem machine wants what it wants. Last time it was Hillary, this time it's trying to figure out if it can get enough of a base with anti-Trump, or if it needs to go further out on the socialist left. Ultimately, I'm still looking (hoping) for enough difference among candidates that the base DOES split and it breaks the party.

                          As soon as he gives up his private security, he can lecture me about the 2d Amendment.

                          As soon as he gives up his private jet and pledges to only fly commercial air, including to his private island, he can lecture me about "climate change."

                          He's a joke... let him piss away $30M on advertising.

                            Saw an interesting take on twitter today.
                            He's not running to win, but by running he can spend unlimited amounts on attack ads that will eventually inure to the benefit of whoever wins the Democratic nomination.

                            That's what people said about Trump... people underestimate the egos of politicians... especially billionaire politicians. ;)

                              I still think Trump didn't expect or even want to win.
