Elizabeth Warren Won't Rule Out Being Hillary Clinton's 2016 Vice Presidential Nominee



Elizabeth Warren won't rule out the possibility of becoming likely Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton's running mate, telling Mic in an interview on Tuesday that her focus, for now, remains on serving as the senior senator from Massachusetts.

"Right now, I just want to be clear. I love my job. I'm here in the United States Senate doing exactly what the people of Massachusetts sent me here to do. I'm in the thick of the fights to try to level the playing field, to try to un-rig this system and that's what really matters to me. That's where I'm headed," the progressive favorite said in a sit-down with Mic's Zeeshan Aleem.

Asked whether she'd foreclose the possibility of joining Clinton's ticket, Warren was hardly Shermanesque in her response.

"You know, this is something we've got to get all of our nominations settled on the Democratic side," Warren said. "For me, I'm going to keep doing my job every single day and I'm not thinking about another job."

1. She would be the best one to bring together the Sanders wing and young voters

but, while it wouldn't bother me, I have to wonder if nominating two women would be too much for the American people--especially white men--to handle. But on the other hand for years and years we have nominated nothing but two white men. I think maybe it is time for a change.

3. She might wield more influence from her current position on the Senate Banking committee.

After this election the Dems might take back the Senate.

I am going to turn around three times and spit.



She will be more Senior if the Democratic caucus grows since a freshman will be named to the panel.


She might get to chair a subcommittee.


She knows all this of course and I am sure she is analyzing this better than any of us.

That being said I like the idea.

4. I don't want someone too afraid to stand up to Sanders' supporters as VP.

 

Sorry, but I think Warren can go pound sand. She wants to role in the Clinton administration despite doing nothing to help get it elected so far. In fact, it's been her subtle not-quite-endorsements of Sanders that have put extra pressure on Clinton. I know an opportunist when I see one, and she's checking all of the boxes.

I'd still respect Warren if I hadn't watched her be a coward over and over due to her fear of Bernie's Bros.

6. I don't know what Hillary will do.

But the first half of 2015, we had endless DU arguments over whether she said she would run or whether she said she wouldn't!

It just seems appropriate to start that up again!

7. She would do what Bernie can't.

She is still a rock star!

If that's what Hillary needs most.
