Armstrong Williams, in an otherwise mundane discussion
of the Clinton's dastardliness, drops this bombshell:
The word on the street is that the Obama campaign and New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg have already met and devised an incredible plan if Clinton wins the nominee. Mayor Bloomberg would give nearly $1 billion to Obama's campaign after which Obama would bolt from the Democratic Party and run as an Independent candidate with king-maker Bloomberg as his running mate. The Obama campaign realizes that Obama is too new at this game and doesn't have the political weight of the Clintons to bring in the true heavy-hitters of the party's hierarchy. So, according to sources it was Bloomberg himself who suggested this cunning strategy. It's mind boggling that the Clintons are willing to destroy the entire Democratic Party, and potentially in the process lose the White House and seats in Congress, for their own selfish thirst for power and glory.
I'm not the biggest fan of the Clintons by any means, but who is willing to destroy the party here? And the whole story doesn't hold together very well; why would Bloomberg dig deep into his pockets to finance Barack? Is it even legal? We all know of the millionaire's exception, but does it apply to running mates?
