One Person Notably Absent From Hillary Event With Female Senators

One Person Notably Absent From Hillary Event With Female Senators

No endorsement yet…

Hillary Clinton met with all of the female Democrat senators Monday who happily endorsed her.

Well, almost all the female Democrat senators. One rather important Massachusetts lawmaker was missing.

Sam Frizell reports at Time:

Warren Absent From Clinton Fundraiser With Female Senators

A meeting of female Democratic senators backing Hillary Clinton’s campaign Monday had one glaring omission, but no one mentioned it. In fact, some in the room seemed to suggest that it wasn’t happening.

Thirteen of the 14 women from Congress’ upper chamber met for a fundraiser at the Hyatt Regency hotel in downtown Washington. Not joining them was Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who has not yet endorsed Clinton’s campaign.

But you wouldn’t have known that if you listened to the speeches.

“It’s an honor to be here with all of my Senate female colleagues,” Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York said.

North Dakota Sen. Heidi Heitkamp mentioned a letter that all the Democratic women senators, including Warren, signed in 2013 urging Clinton to run…

Warren’s absence was not necessarily a slight or an indication that she won’t end up endorsing the Democratic front-runner at some point. But Warren is largely seen as the standard bearer for the party’s liberal base—who many hoped would challenge Clinton for the nomination—and withholding her endorsement is one way of lobbying the candidate to move in her direction.

Elizabeth Warren is in a tight spot. As a female Democrat, she’s expected to endorse the candidate who might become the first woman president.

On the other hand, she’s much more ideologically aligned with Bernie Sanders, who is essentially running as a stand-in for the Warren wing of the Democratic Party.

David Catanese touches on this at U.S. News and World Report:

Elizabeth Warren Only Female Senator Not To Endorse Hillary Clinton

Two months before voting begins in the 2016 presidential primaries, Sen. Elizabeth Warren remains the only female Democratic senator not to have endorsed Hillary Clinton…

Clinton now boasts endorsements from 38 of the 46 Senate Democratic members, or 83 percent of the caucus, according to The Chase, U.S. News’ political tracker.

Sen. Bernie Sanders, the Vermont independent who caucuses with Democrats, has not landed a single endorsement from a colleague. No Republican candidate has more than three Senate endorsements.

But Sanders’ campaign was eager to note that he remains in constant contact with Warren, although representatives stressed the conversations centered around Senate business, not the White House campaign.

Lots of people on the left expect Warren to eventually endorse Clinton.

What happens if she doesn’t?

Warren has overplayed her wallflower status. By pretending to be above the fray she took herself out of serious consideration for anything in the Hillary regime. But also don’t discount that this may be personal and that they have a personal loathing of one another. They both tend to bring that out in people.

Warren could have covered her tracks very easily by saying she had gone on a “vision quest.” Getting in touch with her high cheek bones.

I still do not believe Hillary will be the Democratic candidate. For the last Hillary candidacy, we got Barack Obama, though. So, we know the Democrats can do worse.

An endorsement of Hillary is a self-certification that the endorser has no ethical standards. OK, maybe it is a 2nd self-certification as they are already Democrats.

The reason Warren didn’t show up was because she and Biden are waiting to ride to the rescue when Hillary goes down.

Hillary’s effort to take out Qaddafi through her Operation Zero Footprint (which armed people we KNEW were Muslim Brotherhood and al Qaeda), as well as the subsequent running of weapons from Libya to Syria (i.e. her midwifing ISIS), are mostly still under the radar.

If things stay that way, she’ll be the nominee.

If things heat up, someone will have to take the fall for the mess in Libya – and for helping ISIS – and it’s not going to be Obama.

The Democrats will need a (viable) candidate, so Joe and Lizzie will be there ready to go.

OK, it’s a theory anyway… Maybe Warren just dislikes Hillary.

I think Liz Warren, was distancing herself from Hillary, in case she needs to step in for her. She wants to show people that she is different, But she isn’t. The one of many things that they have in common is that they are both BIG Liars. Warren is further LEFT, than Hillary. Both are Socialists/Marxists.

Interesting for Wa Senators Patty Murray and Maria Cantwell.

Bernie stickers are all over Seattle and the I-5 corridor.

Hillary is no where to be found on I-5 bumpers.
