THE HILL: Clinton vows to win nomination to keep Bloomberg out of race.

Democratic primary front-runner Hillary Clinton on Sunday vowed to win her party’s nomination for president to “relieve” former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg of any thoughts of running for president.

“The way I read what he said is if I didn’t get the nomination, he might consider it,” Clinton said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “Well, I’m going to relieve him of that and get the nomination so he doesn’t have to [run].”
“He’s a good friend of mine, and I’m going to do the best I can to make sure that I get the nomination, and we’ll go from there,” she added.

Bloomberg is reportedly considering a third-party White House bid if race comes down to Democratic primary candidate Bernie Sanders and Republican primary front-runner Donald Trump.

Maybe Bloomberg wants to throw it into the House by ensuring that nobody gets 270. Then the House could pick him over Trump. Problem is, would they do that? Seems doubtful. If the decision was the Senate’s and the GOP nominee were Cruz, then he might have a chance. . . .
