Somewhere Karl Marx is smiling: Bernie Hints at Warren for Veep
Please, please, please
In what would be a dream ticket for some and a nightmare to others, Bernie Sanders has been dropping some not-so-subtle hints that he would select Elizabeth Warren as his running mate.
This would be a smart move on Bernie’s part. He has been functioning as a stand-in for Warren and derives support from her wing of the Democratic Party. The left would be electrified.
The rest of the country would be horrified as these two Neo-Marxists traveled the land promising to take wealth from some and give to others.

Feel the Bern? Bernie Sanders Leads Hillary Clinton in New Poll, Tips Elizabeth Warren for Vice President
Bernie Sanders’ supporters may finally have something to cheer about.
The Vermont senator seems to be establishing a significant lead against fellow Democratic Party presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton, with Fox News January polls tipping Sanders to be ahead of Clinton by a 50-37 percent margin among New Hampshire Democratic primary voters.
The increase in Sanders’ lead will come as great news to the crusading senator, who has previously been tipped to defeat Clinton and prevail over Trump in another recent poll carried out by Quinnipiac University. But Bernie Sanders has nonetheless often found himself sidelined when it comes to polls conducted by the mainstream media, and to find himself leading significantly against Hillary Clinton in a major poll will no doubt give his campaign the boost it might need in the race for Democratic nomination…
Meanwhile, Bernie Sanders appeared to hint who his vice presidential candidate might be during the Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore recently, according to the Huffington Post. When the subject of his potential vice presidential running mate comes up around the 3:46 mark in the video which you can view below, Sanders explicitly hints who it could be.
“Elizabeth Warren is a very good friend of mine, I have known here for a long time, before she was in the Senate.
She is a great US Senator.
She has stood up to Wall Street.
She has stood up to the Big Money interests.
So, she uh, she and I will work together.”

The progressive journalist Brent Budowsky can barely contain his excitement and writes at The Observer:
Sanders-Warren Before New Hampshire Would Rock the Nation
Elizabeth Warren should endorse the presidential candidacy of Bernie Sanders before the New Hampshire primary or, in the alternative, Mr. Sanders should publicly state that if he receives the Democratic nomination his first act will be to ask Ms. Warren to run with him as his vice-presidential nominee in a historic and revolutionary campaign to bring back the spirit of Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin Delano Roosevelt and John F. Kennedy to the leadership of the nation…
According to the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library, one of the favorite quotes of President Kennedy and Robert Kennedy was their version of one from Dante’s Inferno: the hottest places in hell are reserved for those who in times of moral crisis preserve their neutrality.
With the future of the Democratic Party and the nation hanging in the balance, now is the time for Ms. Warren to end her neutrality in the presidential campaign and endorse Mr. Sanders, or for Mr. Sanders to take the revolutionary act and say that if nominated he would offer her the vice presidential nomination and seek to run on a Sanders-Warren ticket.
In a way, this is the ticket the Democratic Party deserves and it’s ironic that Budowsky chooses to reference John F. Kennedy.
Democrats have drifted so far left over the last decade, JFK wouldn’t recognize them.

Necessary Revision: “…Dante’s Inferno: the hottest places in hell are reserved for those who in times of moral crisis preserve” themselves.
Another Lying Far Left-Winged Near Communists who is a Regressive Democrat. I predicted Warren would be brought in as a Replacement for Hillary & maybe even Michelle Obama as a running mate. This Regressive Democrats have gotten away with making their own rules & ignoring the Constitution completely. This Lawless Group must be stopped.
True. And don’t look to the drunks and corrupt cowards of the GOPe or the Fourth Estate (our corrupt news media).
Trump, Cruz, Paul – they’re you’re guys.
“…promising to take wealth from some and give to others.”
Why do I think Warren’s wealth would be outside the redistribution scope? Perhaps because she is a ruling class socialist?
It would involve new legislation that would confiscate wealth from many, but would include exemptions for: those with native American ancestry (meaning Warren, and all of the “casino tribes”, those whose income is derived from The Arts (exempting Hollywood and the news readers in broadcasting), and all manner of exemptions for those in “renewable” energy.
Bernie’s just trying to sew up the Native American vote.
No doubt with special emphasis directed to the Blackjack bands of the Casino tribes.
My impression of two people I’m doing my level best to ignore is that … there’s little affinity between them.
Warren’s a fake, as fake a socialist as she is an Indian. To operate, she must appeal to greedy suckers, first those in the Harvard Affirmative-Action Squad, and now those in the electorate. Like any other used-car salesman, she’ll make up whatever story will appeal to the perceptual weaknesses of her target audience du jour. She won’t jump in to further the interests of the worldwide Soviet Revolution; she’ll jump in if she thinks it will further the interests of Comrade Warren. (Very sensible, really, even if sleazy.)
In diametric opposition we see Sanders. He’s genuine; a genuine crazy old coot who actually believes that Bolshevik rubbish.
So Liz is a good Democrat but little else, and Bernie is a good Socialist but little else. Not exactly a match made in heaven.
For sure, a good-sized contingent of the electorate would totally ooze over such a thing. But while I suspect that it would make some of those who are planning to vote Socialist more enthusiastic about doing so, it wouldn’t actually result in any additional votes for Sanders.
Socialism is for the people not the the socialists.
Dead wrong. Socialism destroys the middle class, enlarges the poor/poverty class and grossly enriches the party leaders. Look all around the world where there are of have been socialist systems – USSR, China, Zimbabwe, Venezuela, Cuba … In all cases the standard of living for most of the people has been destroyed while the leadership raked in the goodies.
I don’t presume to speak for 4Fun, but I think what was meant was that the burdens of socialism – which you accurately describe – are for “the little people”, while those putting it into place don’t suffer the burdens from it.
Sanders’ weakest area of support is among minorities. Naming a Cherokee as running mate would go a long way towards ameliorating that problem. Remember, on their side of the culture you’re a Cherokee if you say you’re a Cherokee.
And if I were a national political reporter, I’d be sure to ask Ms. Warren, at every presser, if her status as a Cherokee gives her special insight into the problems of minorities in America…
Oh, that’d be great. A presidential ticket made up with lefties of Vermont and Massachusetts. Could be a ticket as strong as . . . Mondale! No, wait. Dukakis! Go Democrats!
This could actually be the American Communist Party’s (formerly known as Democrat) ticket. If the Fibbies get any closer to busting the Clinton Crime Cartel’s national security scandal, Hillary will be sitting out the election in an orange jump suit.
Then again, it opens the door for a brokered convention where the ticket of Biden and Sasquatch becomes the ticket. Don’t know who would be on top though.
If you had told me a year ago that I might be faced with seriously considering voting 3rd party for Jim Webb because he might be the best candidate on the November ballot, I’d have said you were nuts.
The good news for the Democrats is that Sanders and Warren together could look up Vermont and Massachusetts for the ticket this fall…
The good news for the Republicans is that Cruz and Fiorina together could lock up the other 48 states.
