1. I think it's highly unlikely that Warren would end up on the ticket.

I don't think she would agree to it, and she could probably be more influential in the Senate (especially if we regain it, though that's an uphill battle) than as Sanders' VP.

2. From an electoral standpoint

it wouldn't make sense for Sanders to pick Warren as a running mate.

5. What if Sanders pick NC Governor Roy Cooper as his VP runningmate?

6. Would not help anyone

NC is balanced on the knife edge. Cooper is ok on his own, but not great coattails. Sanders has a strong, but relatively small following -- maybe 30% of Dems and Dem leaning independents. Even closer to 50% of D/I voters is still not enough.
