Liz Warren Bobs and Weaves

Liz Warren Bobs and Weaves

Keeping her options open…

Massachusetts senator Elizabeth Warren blatantly dodged simple questions from CBS News reporters this week who wanted to know why she hasn’t endorsed a Democratic candidate and if she believed Hillary Clinton should release the transcripts of her speeches to Goldman Sachs.

Could she be angling for the position of Hillary’s VP? Inquiring minds want to know.

Nick Gass of Politico has the details:

Warren won’t say whether Clinton should release Goldman Sachs transcripts

Sen. Elizabeth Warren declined multiple opportunities on Thursday to say whether Hillary Clinton should release the transcripts of her paid speeches to Goldman Sachs and other financial institutions.

The Massachusetts Democrat and progressive icon, who has not publicly endorsed Clinton or Bernie Sanders, was pressed on the issue during an interview with “CBS This Morning.”

“Look, I think that our candidates are out doing what they should be doing in a primary. They are debating the issues,” said Warren, whose outspokenness against Wall Street has fueled and defined her career both in and out of Congress.

Anchor Norah O’Donnell interjected, noting that the senator had not answered her question, which has persisted as an issue throughout the Democratic primary even as the former secretary of state has amassed a large lead over Sanders in delegates.

“They answer for themselves,” Warren responded, dodging again. “What I’m doing is I’m telling you what I think should be going on right now in this primary.”

O’Donnell followed up: “It’s a yes-or-no question. Should she release the transcripts or not?”

Here’s a video of the exchange. Pertinent subject begins at the 2:10 mark:

Getting back to the VP question, we’re not the only ones who are speculating.

From AOL News:

MSNBC host suggests Sen. Elizabeth Warren is vying to be Clinton’s vice president

MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski predicted Friday that one senator is positioning herself to be Hillary Clinton’s running mate.

The “Morning Joe” co-host showed a clip of Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), during which she was asked if Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton should release transcripts of her Wall Street speeches.

“I think what’s really happening here is that Elizabeth Warren might be trying to negotiate herself a very good position in whatever the Clinton administration might look like,” Brzezinski prefaced the clip.

Warren was “dancing around the topic” with her response to the question, saying, “I think that our candidates are doing exactly what they should do in a primary. They are debating the issues.”

“I think she’s going to be veep,” the host responded to the clip. “There must be something at play here.”
Brzezinski suggested there “must be some sort of negotiations underway” between Warren and Clinton in regards to a running-mate.

Note to the GOP: We’ve already done much of the opposition research.

Being the VP doesn’t really make sense. Little/no power and the money is less than she’s used to.

Newt Gingrich predicted that Warren would be the nominee if Hillary is indicted. That’s what Warren is hoping for.

Hillary as President. Lizzie Warren as VP. Mrs. Weiner as Chief of Staff. Slick Willie as White House social director.

Just how mentally screwed up would you have to be to want to get a job working in that asylum?

Given Hillary’s history of lying I wouldn’t trust any transcript she released without corroborating evidence.

Definitely keeping her options open.

If something happens to Hillary, the Democrats will certainly not let Bernie be their nominee.

As long as neither has endorsed anyone the Dems later dump, Uncle Joe and Lizzie can come riding in to the rescue.

Or maybe, the Dems will dump Biden, too, and Lady Liz will be their nominee.

It’s going to be interesting to watch.

My mistake–I read the headline incorrectly. I thought that the article was about Warren’s silicone implants and hair extensions.

hitlery is going to need someone likeable on the ticket. Don’t forget she hasn’t had a press conference in something like a hundred days.
Didn’t her poll numbers go down when she was doing interviews? Seems to me I remember her numbers went up as long as she wasn’t talking and went down when she was being interviewed.

She wants to be with the winner. Going with Hillary now makes no sense. What if she falls. She wins by keeping options open for Biden or Hillary.

Even if Hillary does not pick her, Warren has power because her endorsement matters to Hillary. She will get something for that.

The fact that Hillary and Lizzie can even consider running with all the baggage they carry speaks volumes to our lack of a real media.
