Warren shows her value to Clinton with Trump attacks

Source: The Hill, Ben Kamisar

Elizabeth Warren has emerged as one of the Democratic Party's most effective attack dogs against Donald Trump, fueling speculation that she could end up as Hillary Clinton’s running mate.

Warren's jabs at Trump on Twitter have been notable for both their speed and intensity, with the former Harvard professor matching Trump’s penchant for cutting insults.


Warren’s hard-edged assault on Trump has become a sensation online. A Facebook compilation of her tweets against Trump has been generated more than 45 million views on Facebook, her office told CNN, even as the remarks have made headlines across the country.


“By positioning herself as Donald Trump’s primary Democratic antagonist right now, Sen. Warren is filling the space that would normally be occupied by bickering between the two Democratic primary characters. When she’s taking on Trump, there’s not a lot of oxygen left for Sanders and Clinton attacking each other,” said Kevin Franck, a strategist who worked for the Massachusetts Democratic Party during Warren’s 2012 race against Scott Brown.

At least one high-ranking Democrat is already behind the idea of Warren on the ticket.
