Sen. Elizabeth Warren huddled with Hillary Clinton at the presumptive Democratic nominee's Washington, D.C., home this morning, the day after the Massachusetts Democrat endorsed Clinton's bid for the White House.
Warren's visit to Clinton's home lasted 66 minutes. As she departed, Warren ignored questions from the media about what the two discussed in their meeting. A source familiar with the meeting tells ABC News that the two conferred about how they can work together in the upcoming general election campaign to advance the progressive agenda and defeat Donald Trump.
Warren's support could be significant to Clinton as she looks to appeal to Bernie Sanders’ constituency, even as the Vermont senator has yet to exit the race.
Warren, like Sanders, is considered a rising star in the Democratic Party for her advocacy on economic equality issues and taking on Wall Street.
Warren has been seen as a possible vice presidential candidate for Clinton. Asked about the speculation Thursday night, Warren said, "no," adding that she had not heard from Clinton nor her campaign about whether she is under consideration for the position.
On Tuesday night, during an exclusive interview with ABC News shortly before giving her acceptance speech, Clinton praised Warren and didn't rule out the prospect of having her on the ticket.
"I'm not going to get into vice presidential choices,” Clinton said, “but I have the highest regard for Senator Warren.”
The only thing that I am going to say is that if you were trying to quell speculation about Elizabeth Warren being on the ticket, this is not how you would do that.
Furthermore if you REALLY wanted to piss off the progressives and frustrated Bernie supporters, and ensure that they would NEVER vote for you in the general, you would tease them with this possibility and then choose somebody completely different.
So ask yourself, would Hillary Clinton really do something that politically clumsy?
Now if you will excuse me I have a Snoopy dance to get back to.
