44. Thing is, though, we may want/need her exactly where she is now.

Tim Kaine brings strength to the ticket. As winners, their success in November could flip the Senate back to us. And Elizabeth Warren could be named chair of the Senate Banking Committee. THAT is a humdinger of a powerful position. Bernie Sanders could get something big, too. You get to set the agenda when you're the party in power in the Senate. Wonder who'd get Judiciary? Because Hillary would have to appoint a Supreme Court justice (or maybe more than one), especially if this butt-head GOP-led Senate decides to stay in butt-head mode til President Obama leaves office.

Besides, people like Warren and Booker have one big piece of baggage if either of them were lifted out of the Senate to go for VP. Two words: Governor republi-CON.
