19. Again, why would Obama need or want Bloomberg for that?
He's a progressive. He's not going to ask Bloomberg to be his man behind the curtain. Obama can bring in independents without Bloomberg's help. There's no proof that Bloomberg has any kind of national following and Obama will win New York anyway.
