Former Mayor Michael Bloomberg insists he won’t be a presidential candidate in 2016 – but he was OK with serving as a political commentator on CBS’ “Face the Nation.”

On whether Republican strategist Karl Rove’s comments suggesting Hillary Rodham Clinton might have suffered brain damage when she developed a blood clot in her head in 2012, Bloomberg said: “I understand political arguments. You can disagree with somebody on their views. You can even criticize their performance. But there is a line beyond which you shouldn’t go. And I thought it was about as inappropriate a thing you could say.”
