Wall Street is trying to pressure Hillary Clinton into not making Elizabeth Warren her VP. Which is exactly why Hillary Clinton needs to make Elizabeth Warren her VP.

Wall Street's against me? I'm so surprised.
Courtesy of Politico:  

Big Wall Street donors have a message for Hillary Clinton: Keep Elizabeth Warren off the ticket or risk losing millions of dollars in contributions. 

In a dozen interviews, major Democratic donors in the financial services industry said they saw little chance that Clinton would pick the liberal firebrand as her vice presidential nominee. These donors despise Warren’s attacks on the financial industry. But they also think her selection would be damaging to the economy. And they warned that if Clinton surprises them and taps Warren, big donations from the industry could vanish.

“If Clinton picked Warren, her whole base on Wall Street would leave her,” said one top Democratic donor who has helped raise millions for Clinton. “They would literally just say, ‘We have no qualms with you moving left, we understand all the things you’ve had to do because of Bernie Sanders, but if you are going there with Warren, we just can’t trust you, you’ve killed it.’” 

Most big donors don’t want Warren on the ticket because she is the most accomplished anti-Wall Street populist in the Democratic Party. But many also think her presence would drive a potential Clinton administration too far to the left, poison relations with the private sector from the start and ultimately be damaging to the economy. 

Now that is music to my ears. 

So now here is the box that Hillary Clinton finds herself in.

If she doesn't choose Warren as her VP, everybody will assume that Wall Street owns her and that she really is untrustworthy.

If she does choose Elizabeth Warren, and Warren declines, everybody will assume that Warren thinks Wall Street owns her and that she is untrustworthy. 

In other words Warren is now is an incredibly powerful position which, knowing what we know about her, means that she will be making some very specific demands of Hillary Clinton and the Democratic party.

However since she has been such an aggressive and outspoken advocate for Hillary as of late, I think those demands have already been met.

      7:14 - we have debunked aspects of that 2012 article many times here on IM in the comments. Search "Dawes rolls" here; maybe that will help explain it to you. You don't have to be in a tribe in order to claim native heritage. Her blood quantum may be low, but that does not mean it's not true. Many people her age from OK have mixed race backgrounds. Both of my parents, born in OK, do, but there is only federal documentation on one side. Yet my parents have the same blood quantum amount (from different tribes each). There are many people like that. I am a member of an arts group focused on irs native members; we know that many refused to be counted by the federal gov't as a protest, so if someone's family was not on the rolls, it may mean they were protesting the US on behalf of their tribe! It is very complicated, and anyone who wishes to continue such accusations against Warren may be surprised to learn how little they know about US history and native genocide, and even why some families hid from the census takers in the 20th century, as well as the cruelty of residential schools, and how they destroyed native families.

      8:41, you don't really hear Warren talking about her claimed Native American heritage anymore do you?

      ""There's a running joke in Indian country: If you meet somebody who you wouldn't necessarily think they're Native, but they say they're Native, chances are they'll tell you they're Cherokee," said Lenzy Krehbiel-Burton, a spokesperson for the Cherokee Nation in Oklahoma""

      How do you define 'qualified'? She had no political experience prior to this, her first, current Senate term. What is her foreign policy experience? She's passionate about consumer rights and holding Wall Street accountable but that qualifies her more for a cabinet position that VP and 2nd in line to the presidency.

    Unlike Bernie, I would welcome any demands made by Elizabeth Warren. Warren has shown herself to be a team player. She wants to work toward a goal, not threaten the convention if she doesn't get her way immediately.

    Bernie is a true loser. And he changed over the course of a year. It went from a campaign about ideas to a campaign about the candidate.

    So fart away Bernie bros and raise hell at the convention if you must. Once Warren is named as VP, not many will remember Bernie and the pain in the ass that he is.

She is far more left than Bernie, who could not be bothered to filibuster last week. She was the only candidate to discuss reproductive rights for women and Planned Parenthood in a positive way! (Bernie said Planned Parenthood was the "establishment"!)

    Who is 'everybody'? I think the 'everybody' of whom you speak is a minority of the population, being the Sanders Brigade and the Donald Trump train, made louder with the megaphone of the horse-race media.

    If Warren does run as the VP candidate, 'everybody' will still say Hillary is owned by Wall Street. They'll say Hillary took her out of Senate where she'd have more influence over legislation. A president can easily keep a VP under wraps.

    Some variation of the Wall Street smear will be levied during the campaign no matter what. But there's reason to think the smear won't matter to the needed majority of the voting public. The Democratic Party gave Clinton the nomination in spite of knowing about her Wall Street ties and the Dems are to the left of the general voting public. We elected Barack Obama to the presidency twice even though he took campaign donations from Wall Street.

    "...anyone with a passing understanding of how federal budgets work knows that budgets are based on approximates, not line items picked on an as-needed basis. So, even if the claim is true as such—even if the $38,000 is in reference to monies needed beyond the Secret Service’s normal course of operation—it still doesn’t make any sense. Until the Secret Services asks Congress for additional funds, there is no money being added or taken from their actual budget, and thus no money being added or taken away from “the taxpayer.”

      That is some kind of ignorance. Spending budgets are allocated based on projected use. Any money that is not spent is re-allocated somewhere else. So if Sanders is using it, someone else is not. I don't know how often budgets are reviewed for the SS, but when I worked for a government organization, it was quarterly. Any unused budget was re-allocated else where.

    These Bernie posts are a riot, and are working wonders for your blog's ratings! And the funny thing is, the post is about Hillary and Liz. Just my opinion, but I think she'd make a great addition to Hillary's Presidency in any capacity.

      Why? How would her power be greater than as a sitting Senator on the banking and finance committee? I don't see it.

      Maybe it's because you aren't very intelligent? Maybe it's because you are under educated?

      No one is going to vote for two chicks, but at least Warren is playing a long game and moving Hillary to the left.

      6:50 - my mom and dad will vote for "two chicks." They are in their 80's. If they are ready, so are many more.

      The case has not been presented other than to say, "I think...." The statement is lacking in support. Nice ad hominem attack though. That is the go to response of under-educated, low info people. Carry on.

    She would only be a bigger threat as VP than as Senator to Wall Street if Hillary died in office. She has more power to affect change in the Senate rather than as a mostly non-voting VP over-seeing the Senate.

      That's your opinion but not hers.

    2. Definitely Warren has more power in the Senate than as VP. She is also close to Clinton in age. The position is better used to raise the profile of an up and coming younger Dem.

      5:53 You don't know that..Warren is smart and keeping her thoughts to herself.
      Personally, I think she'd be way more effective in the Senate for now.

    4. 7:10 - you just made my point. We don't know Warren's opinion, but she has allowed herself to be vetted. That much we do know. I think Warren can make her own decision about where she can serve most effectively. Don't you?

      Wow, somebody is a major panty-sniffer of Warren. Can't handle any other opinion without be rabid, can you? Well, well, well. I guess no one else is allowed an opinion different than yours.

    Nope. Nope. Nope. Elizabeth Warren needs to become the Senate Majority Leader. The Leader of the Senate. She who decides which bill comes to order.
    Not a VP.
    President. In the future. Not yet.
