This article and all the encouraging responses to it are depressing. You are all so opposed to Trump that you want to beat him with … another Trump? Another super-rich racist who is trying to buy the election.

Everyone feeling excited about Bloomberg seems uninterested in HOW he governed NYC and how he would act as president.

Considering that so many of you speak about identity politics and the REAL need for more diversity in Washington, D.C., I just don’t understand how you can feel anything but revulsion at the idea of Bloomberg being the Democratic nominee. It tells me either you haven’t heard about how he governed, in which case I’d suggest listening to or watching some progressive media outlets like The Benjamin Dixon Show, the Majority Report or Secular Talk, or you actually don’t care as much as you claim about the lives of minorities and women.
