Though formal deliberations have yet to begin, the notion of a Clinton-Warren dream team has already been contemplated at Clinton’s campaign headquarters in Brooklyn. And there is likely to be more such talk, for several reasons:
Putting the liberal icon on the ticket would reunite the party and energize Sanders supporters who feel Clinton didn’t go far enough in adopting his theme of economic justice.
An all-female ticket would electrify Democrats and widen a gender gap that is already wide enough to swallow Trump, long accused of misogyny.
Above all, Warren’s passionate populism would provide a perfect antidote to the oft-bankrupt billionaire Trump. If Clinton embraced Warren, and more of her agenda, she could match Trump’s appeal to disaffected, white, working-class voters.
As frequent readers of this blog well know I am a big fan of the Clinton/Warren ticket, and have been advocating for it essentially right after Hillary declared that she wanted to run for the presidency
Not only does it make for an unbeatable ticket, but it also provides comfort for those who feel that Clinton is too pro-Wall street, or non-trustworthy.
And let's face it, Bernie Sanders supporters are mostly Warren supporters to went to the dance with the one who said yes, rather than the one they were crushing on.
And before any of those controlls come over and start talking about how Warren needs to stay in the Senate where she will be more effective, that is simply bullshit and the talk of somebody who either doesn't understand politics or who is terrified of the effectiveness that Warren with have in her role as Vice President.
This is the presidential ticket that the Democrats need, the country deserves, and the Republicans fear the most.
