Coy Bloomberg Still Won’t Admit He Hearts Obama

by Sara K. Smith

He feels too muchEven though Barack Obama took New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg out to breakfast a few months ago, gave a big fancy speech about Alexander Hamilton in Bloomberg’s back yard, and not-so-subtly hinted that he would appreciate at least a steak dinner in exchange for the reacharound, Bloomberg still refuses to go steady with Obama.

Instead the former Democrat and former Republican maverick Bloomberg has decided to stay “neutral” and not endorse any Presidential candidate. It’s a tough line for him to walk: Hillary Clinton is from his home state, Barack Obama bought him breakfast, and John McCain belongs to the political party he most recently abandoned.

Ah, but who cares? Until the Voters Have Spoken (in Pennsylvania, one million years from now) all this pointless speculation can keep alive the crazy dream that Michael Bloomberg has some sort of influence, or future, in national politics.
