Schweitzer & Warren ...Hmmmmm

That would be something else..

He speaks Arabic..has lived in the Middle East (Libya)..He's a plain-spoken guy..and he's very tall (yes, it's silly, but height matters)

Warren's senate seat would be safe in 2016, and if he chose another, she would be an excellent choice for Sec of Treas..

1. Warren isn't running even for vice president

How about Schweitzer and Kentucky governor Steve Beshear, Schweitzer and Mass governor Deval Patrick, or Schweitzer and New York governor Andrew Cuomo? I kinda like the Beshear-Schweitzer ticket; one huge attack the GOP lays at our feet is "the Democrats don't understand Real America." (Real America being the rural parts of America and not the big cities that are full of Democrats.) Beshear understands the farmer, the factory worker and the urbanite, and Schweitzer certainly understands the concerns of the American farmer, being he is one. And Beshear has done wonders with Obamacare - even if the GOP ever managed to repeal the federal law I think the Kentucky citizenry would like to keep Kynect.

Better idea: Steve Beshear for president, Brian Schweitzer for VP.

2. As long as it's not...

Hillary. Unfortunately, too much past baggage and the PukeBaggers will have a field day.

And as much as I personally would love it in my lifetime, a woman can't win in either position (I hope I get proven wrong.)

3. Sorry, bad idea.

Elizabeth Warren for the top job. Period.

5. That would be my favorite as well.

but if Hillary runs, Elizabeth will stay put, and Hillary would never choose her as a running mate.. The Clintons will want a Hispanic younger man

4. I like Schweitzer, but I don't see him getting the nomination

 

A Catholic, pro-gun former governor in favor of coal mining to convert coal to fuel isn't going to get the support of a number of small, but very vocal and influential groups on the left.
