In a Fox News piece about billionaires contemplating running for President in 2020, one comment jumped out at me. Adrienne Elrod, erstwhile Hillary Clinton senior advisor and current Progressive-Democrat strategist, made this remark about Michael Bloomberg’s chances in particular, were he to enter the primary contest for the Progressive-Democrat Party’s nomination.
[T]he biggest thing that’s going to hurt him more than his personal wealth is the fact that he used to be a Republican.
Fox News cited her as continuing:
She said that would be a “far bigger liability” competing in “a very left-leaning progressive grassroots primary.”
This is what the Progressive-Democratic Party—at the least what a major wing of the Party fighting for control of it—thinks of rehabilitation, of redemption. The Party—or its potentially controlling wing—does not believe a man can rehabilitate himself, does not consider a man redeemable from his sins.
Keep this in mind over the coming couple of years.
