I just don't see any current Democratic candidate that excites people on their side. Bernie has a fervent following but it's not enough to win, imo. That's why Bloomberg is in an easy position to win the nomination. No other clear front runner that will gobble up delegates. Many of the candidates have dropped out already without him even having a debate. He can now just buy all kinds of expensive advertisement in Florida and other states and flood the airwaves. The party that railed against millionaires and billionaires will all get in line to support their billionaire because they want someone that can beat Trump.
Unless Michelle Obama enters the race, this is a foregone conclusion. Or he could choose her to be his running mate. Thus creating excitement on the ticket and solidifying the constituency of females and blacks to vote for them.

Hillary won’t go for that. She’s just standing on the sidelines waiting. (Put me in coach, I’m ready to play, today.

Bloomberg, buying endorsements one "newsman" at a time.
