5. I am inherently skeptical of ANY candidate

 

who only runs for one office as a Democrat and that is for the Presidency.

To me, that indicates a Democrat "of convenience" who wants to piggyback on Democratic Party resources, rather than one who truly espouses the principles of the Democratic Party. Bloomberg is in some ways an anomaly because he is self-funded and hasn't so far had to rely on Democratic Party resources such as debates, etc. But he still raises WAY too many red flags for me.

I am sorry to see that several here at DU, of all places, so readily jump into the column of ANYONE ELSE when we still have some exceptional candidates in the running who have either run for office ONLY as Democrats or who have been life-long Democrats.

But that's JMO. And a sad one. IMO.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
