In. There's no reason why he shouldn't easily win the democratic nomination if he actually decides to do it. Trump needs to be a little afraid, here.

The solution isn't another billionaire. Hopefully whomever wins taxes those people into oblivion.

Won't work. Nobody knows who he is, outside of New York and the financial industry. He will have to prove he's not just another Wall Street fat cat, and he doesn't have enough time to do so.

His greatest hurdle will be being Jewish. That big swath of Middle America that voted for Trump won't like that any more than they liked a Black president.

After the election of a Black man named Barak Hussein Obama, I might have thought, well, yes... finally, America might be ready to elect a Jewish president. But then -- Trump was elected.

The White fear that put Trump in the Oval Office is a harsh demonstration of just how fuct up this country is, despite our East Coast/West Coast delusions to the contrary.

Huzzah!

And then, let's go after the millionaires! And then the people who make more than $100,000 a year. Then more than $50,000.

In fact, let's have the government take EVERYBODY'S money, and give each of us an allowance of just enough to feed ourselves. And the government can decide how much food we REALLY need.

I like what he has to say. The visual of another 70 something white male may be something the opposition latches onto.

I think it'll be enough to just go after the billionaires for now, John. People have trouble distinguishing the exact scale of those amounts, and just how corrosive that much money is. I'm 40 years old, I've lived under trickle-down economics for my entire life. It doesn't work.

Beyond that, the Democratic base isn't going to vote for the guy who kept "stop and frisk" going. Maybe we'll see him run third party, and then the Never Trumpers can put their money where their mouth is.
