Add this to the reasons to be skeptical of Barack Obama... Vice-President Bloomberg*?
I want to thank Mayor Bloomberg for his extraordinary leadership. At a time when Washington is divided in old ideological battles, he shows us what can be achieved when we bring people together to seek pragmatic solutions. Not only has he been a remarkable leader for New York –he has established himself as a major voice in our national debate on issues like renewing our economy, educating our children, and seeking energy independence. Mr. Mayor, I share your determination to bring this country together to finally make progress for the American people.
Because obviously what the United States needs is more nannying.
*Still seems unlikely to me, mercifully. Then again, Chuck Todd says it makes sense.
