Bloomberg/H. Clinton ticket cannot happen.

Bloomberg and H. Clinton are both from the same home state- New York.
H. Clinton will need to change her home state from New York to Arkansas or Washington,DC.
If Bloomberg wants to select a woman as his runningmate- he needs to choose-
Kamala Harris(D-CA)- a black liberal female US Senator from the West coast.

1. Actually, she has time to change her residency. Cheney was a Texas resident until 4 days before

George W. Bush named him as VP in July 2000. A court fight ensued, but he was declared a WY (not Texas) resident.

Presumedly, HRC could readily do the same.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) _ Dick Cheney is a Wyoming resident and therefore would be constitutionally qualified to serve as George W. Bush’s vice president, a federal appeals court ruled Thursday.

The ruling came from the bench after an hour-long hearing in which lawyers for three Texas residents argued that Cheney had moved to Bush’s home state of Texas when he took a job there in 1993.

The three-judge appellate panel took a short recess after the arguments, then Judge Patrick Higginbotham returned to say without elaboration that the panel was in agreement that Cheney clearly is a Wyoming resident.

Higginbotham was appointed by former President Reagan. The others _ Rhesa H. Barksdale and Jacques L. Wiener Jr. _ were appointed by former President Bush.

The three plaintiffs were prepared to appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court if the appeals court sides with a lower court judge, one of their lawyers said before the ruling.

Cheney, a former Wyoming congressman, lived in Dallas while he was chairman of Halliburton Co. until he changed his voting registration to Teton County, Wyo., on July 21 _ four days before becoming Bush’s running mate.

3. Harris would ruin her future chances at the presidency if she were to run with Stop and Frisk

Bloomberg whom many consider a racist.

7. Nope. Bloomberg's Stop and Frisk policy was declared unconstitutional. It denied five million people

their civil liberties, jettisoned the fourth amendment, and led to crushing consequences for many
AA and Latinx youth. He also illegally surveilled and spied on Muslims. In both cases, profiling was
used extensively. In fact, with SQF, cause for suspicion of carrying a weapon was not the criteria for stopping—only race determined who was stopped.

In addition, the FBI had to put a halt to Bloomberg’s operation against Muslims. Not one lead came out of it.

Harris was already unfairly painted as being on the wrong side of the law, which affected her support among some AA voters.

An association with Bloomberg will be seen as a sell-out. He won’t get the nomination and she will have damaged her excellent reputation. Though Bloomberg has some AA support, it is anti-Trump
driven. Once he can not help oust Trump, his draconian crime fighting program and his justification for it will end his current favor.

I do not believe Harris will ever join his ticket, in any case. It would help him, but not her.
