For John, BLUF: Mayor Bloomberg is late to the open game, so he has to bust a few moves to allow him to dominate some news cycles and to disrupt and disturb the apparent front runners. Nothing to see here; just move along.
From CNBC, by Ms Lauren Hirsch, 15 February 2020.
Here is the lede plus one:
Presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg is considering Hillary Clinton as a vice presidential running mate after positive internal polling about the potential pairing, according to the Drudge Report, which cited sources close to the Bloomberg campaign.Of course it is being denied. It is a trial balloon.
According to Drudge, in such a partnership Bloomberg would change his official residence from New York to Colorado or Florida. The constitution suggests there may be limitations in both members of a presidential ballot residing in the same state.
There will be plenty of time between now and the Convention to massage this part of the campaign. In the mean time, there is a pocket of 2016 Hillary voters that will not be easily floating to Senators Warren or Klobuchar or to Senator Sanders or Mayor Buttigieg. A successful campaign includes a lot of strategic thinking.
