Warren obviously angling for the VP spot

"Yes I do" (ready to be commander in chief)

instead of

"If drafted I will not run, nominated I will not accept and if elected I will not serve."

5. honestly don't know about that

 

VP spot is supposed to be given to someone who can pull in states during the GE and could be the next President.

10. The electoral map is our to lose right now

 

I think they can be very effective in pulling in moderates, liberals, progressives and conservative dems and even moderate republican women. Trump is a gift horse.

12. I'd rather she stay in the Senate

Making her VP is a way to put a muzzle on her when issues like Wall Street reform or trade agreements come up.

Don't let this happen to her.

"Once a fiery liberal spirit,
But now when he speaks he must clear it"

7. There is a rumor whipping around the city (covered locally) that she's going to be IT.

That it is already a done deal.

Do I have insight? No--I'm just repeating what I heard!!!

17. When has Elizabeth Warren ever been railroaded into doing anything?

What an insulting thing to say.

16. I think that was a 'tell.' And she would certainly strengthen Hillary's hand.

 

I don't want to believe it though. I, like Liz, oppose most of the policies Hillary is associated with. As VP, she couldn't oppose fracking, TPP, or promote the $15 minimum.

18. Wouldn't that hand her Senate seat to the Republicans?

Massachusetts has a Republican governor.

20. I didn't see it that way - It was a smack down of Ed Rendall's snark.

And totally spot on, I might add. Ed is in no position to be judging Warren's qualifications.
