Ben Smith | Why we should take Nanny Bloomberg seriously this time

Ben Smith, Buzzfeed:

There’s not a whole lot more to say. Bloomberg has reportedly set himself a deadline of March. If the parties nominate Trump and Sanders, there’s obviously a big lane up the middle — though it’s not clear that what America wants is a purebred son of Wall Street with a reputation capable administrator. Maybe! Though that lane would theoretically be open to someone who came from, and could speak to, the politics of a younger, more diverse America than will come naturally to any of those three.

In any event, I emailed Sheekey this morning to pick up our long conversation about a possible Bloomberg White House.

“Was thinking about writing that Mike was always ready to run if gop nominated a joke candidate,” I emailed. “Does that make sense?”

“Yes and no,” Sheekey replied.

He declined to elaborate.
