Hillary Clinton and Elizabeth Warren to campaign together in Cincinnati. Doesn't mean a thing, right?

Courtesy of Cincinnati.com:

Hillary Clinton will campaign Monday in Cincinnati with progressive U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts – marking Clinton's first public appearance in Cincinnati this election cycle and her first campaign stop with Warren, a possible vice presidential pick.

And then there is this from the Washington Post: 

The Hillary Clinton campaign has begun checking into the positions, backgrounds and financial dealings of at least three potential vice presidential candidates, Democrats familiar with the process said Tuesday: Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro, Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and Sen. Timothy M. Kaine of Virginia.

Clinton herself has said only that her top priority is choosing someone who could become president in a heartbeat, but close allies have said she is also focused on picking a partner with whom she is personally comfortable and someone able to rally congressional Democrats and energize the party.

"Rally congressional Democrats and energize the party?"

Come on, who else does that really describe?

Besides you know if Hillary were not going to pick Elizabeth Warren as her VP it is hard to believe that she would so nakedly dangle the possibility in front of us only to snatch it away at the last minute.

I'm telling you, the Clinton/Warren ticket would steamroll right over Trump and the poor schlub that he tricks into losing with him.

    Tim Kaine is the better pick strategically. Elizabeth Warren will continue to be a force to be reckoned with in the senate and maybe even in a more senior position safeguarding the US economy and the middle class from ruthless bankers and corporate greed.

      I tend to agree with you. Obama balanced the ticket with an attractive, intelligent white family for vp. I think Warren would turn away many male voters. Unfortunately our society isn't quite ready for a female duo. Many voters are visual...that's why TV and magazine ads sell. It's been said; Hispanics will vote in mass to vote against Trump (if he isn't replaced for some reason), so Kaine may be a viable running mate if he is qualified.

      WASHINGTON (AP) — State Department staffers wrestled for weeks in December 2010 over a serious technical problem with then-Secretary Hillary Clinton's home email server, causing them to temporarily disable security features that left the server more vulnerable to hackers, according to emails released Wednesday.
      Just weeks later, according to previously disclosed emails, hackers attacked the server, forcing Clinton's staff to shut it down. The next day, one of Clinton's closest aides, Huma Abedin, wrote to other high ranking staff: "Don't email hrc (Clinton) anything sensitive. I can explain more in person."

      Warren's name-calling attack style is fun right now but has a short half-life. The best Trump zinger I've heard yet came from Clinton, about how Trump's books on business all end at chapter eleven.
      Clinton and Warren are miles apart in their political ideologies. Having seen how Warren has dogged Obama, I can see how it may appeal to Clinton to corral Warren into a job where the first two prime duties are 1) sit down, and 2) shut up. I really can't see Warren buying into that trap.
      I'm pulling for Castro - anyone who would inspire more Latino voters would help us get rid of McCain.

  20. I like warren and wouldn't be upset at all if she were to be the VP pick. I think it would be a good ticket. But I also like the idea of an age mix like we had with Obama/Biden. Fresh/young and older/wiser made a nice balance. Warren and Clinton are the same age, race, and gender. This is not a bad thing, but something for everyone would also be a nice thing.

    Warren staying in the Senate or being treasury Secretary would also be a good thing.

    I am happy that the Democrats have a number of viable choices, all of whom would bring something valuable to the ticket and it is nice to know that I will be able to wholeheartedly support the ticket no matter who is picked as VP.

  26. Warren is not going to be the VP pick. She doesn't help Hillary a bit. Rather than bring along Sanders supporters, they will be more likely abandon Warren if she were to be on the ticket. So Warren doesn't help Clinton one iota. Her state is solidly blue and Hillary does not need her to attract women voters, where she already dominates. Plus, Warren would not serve as vice president in a Republican administration.
