Bloomberg is, on the face of it, an implausible alternative. A lifelong Democrat -- he became a Republican only to avoid running in a tough primary race for mayor and now has quit the GOP and declared himself an independent -- Bloomberg has no institutional support in any camp. His appeal as a divorced Jewish city guy to the South, the Midwest and rural areas is questionable.
