What should we expect now that impeachment hearings go public?
Well, it's a huge week for Democrats, starting Wednesday. They'll take testimony from State Department officials saying that they believe there was a quid pro quo between Trump and Ukraine aid in return for an investigation of Joe Biden. They need to both shape public opinion and try to crack the GOP wall of support for Trump.
Is Pete Buttigieg the new darling of Wall Street?
He is, as I wrote on Politico this morning. Lots of young bankers like his socially liberal, but fiscally more prudent approach. So, he's raising a lot of money there.
Is Michael Bloomberg finally really running for president?
I now have my doubts. Polls out this weekend show him at 4 percent among Democrats. Not a good number. And Mike Bloomberg is not a guy who rolls the dice on longshots. Does fine against Trump but the problem is getting there. So, I think there's a good chance that this Bloomberg boomlet also fails.
