    This is unusually intelligent and thoughtful for you. Who did you crib it from?

    As for being in the debate... Bloomberg has a Obama/Trump-sized ego and probably thought he'd do fine. And he likely felt he would be savaged even if not there (certainly true) and figured it'd be better if he could defend himself.
    The only reason he's getting any support from the DNC is because they're using him as a spoiler to derail Sanders. They desperately want a brokered convention so they can select the candidate of their choice.

    An "Independent" is currently leading the Democratic field in the polls and I haven't heard you complain.

    If that happens the Bernie bros will go nuclear. It'll look like the 1968 Chicago convention all over again.

    That's just dumb. If anything Bloomberg will help Sanders to win the nomination, by further dividing the more moderates vote, and it is highly doubtful that the DNC would be foolish enough to disenfranchise Sanders supporters with a brokered convention that takes their victory away from them.

    Sanders is an Independent, but he has always caucused with the democrats, is supported by democrats, and was even supported by the DNC in his Senate run against a democrat.

    So there's "independents" and then there are "independents"

    I agree, but nobody has ever accused the DNC of being particularly smart. Unfortunately, Democrat voters are even dumber and don't seem entirely aware of what's really going on.

    The way things are currently tracking, Bloomberg could siphon off just enough delegates to keep Crazy Bernie from earning the plurality needed to avoid a brokered convention.
