    No, mayors manage the people who keep the snowplows running. Effective executives aren't keeping paper in the copiers.

    What about dumpster fires? Could I legally walk away from one of those?

    Many do. Doubling down on that by giving out more goodies isn't the answer.

    In reality, either the people making 36K get taxed properly, or we have a deficit
    No. We have record revenues and economic growth and a trillion dollar deficit. In reality either we curtail spending, or we have a deficit.

    Yes, JFK was a political whore by picking LBJ - which came back to bite him as president, but the country got lucky that LBJ shocked the country by being a southerner who supported (most of) JFK's policies as president's instead of the south's.

    The thing about Bloomberg is he needs to keep AA support that has drifted to him from Biden, which is very fluid right now, and I'm not so sure that if Biden wins SC big that AA's don't come back over to him for Super Tuesday and prevent Bloomberg from anything more than an odd state.

    But, it's hard to tell with the race being fluid who's where.
