1. I hope he doesn't hold a grudge for that private prison exchange with Biden...

 

I really don't see Steyer endorsing Sanders. So, if he wants a moderate candidate with a chance? Let's hope it is Biden.

With a lot of charitable work. He cares about climate change.

Being rich doesn’t mean being evil or untrustworthy.

12. I always think about Ted Kennedy. All the riches in the world

 

He could have sailed his yacht. But he chose to trudge to the Senate until the end, standing up for the little people. Not about your bank account...about your heart. Bloomberg blew it at debate...he didn't show his heart.

Bloomberg LP is his life. The company would have to be pried out of his cold, dead hands.

22. As someone with a career in business, I think

 

What he did in his career is extraordinary. Although, jealous he did get a $10 million with an "m", severance. Yet he saw a technology need for traders and filled it. I worked on an installation of his software/system in a trading group and it was pure innovation. I don't really blame him for potentially letting that go.

That said, you just don't feel warmth and heart from him. JHC I have received dozens of expensive flyers from him in the mail. Money would have been better spent on an extraordinary image advisor.

23. This Steyer supporter jumped to Elizabeth Warren.

 

Steyer is a progressive who happens to be a billionaire. His progressive policies clashed with and were overcome by his lousy optics- old, white, billionaire. I supported him because he clearly put climate change at the top of his agenda.

13. Respect for Steyer.

 

Unlike Bloomberg, I always saw Steyer as being in this race because he really cared about the issues, rather than his ego. Climate change, for one thing. And his dropping out now shows he sees the bigger picture. He seems like a decent guy, and I hope he can use his money and platform to keep supporting good causes.

I honestly have no idea why he was running, except that really wealthy people tend to think very highly of themselves.
