Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren on Thursday said Hillary Clinton should stake out a position on a multi-nation trade deal being finalized by the Obama administration.

Warren, in an interview broadcast Thursday on CBS “This Morning,” said that she will say where she stands on “all of the key issues, it’s up to others to say whether they stand there as well, or if they stand in some different place.”

CBS host Charlie Rose asked Warren to name one issue on which she would like to see Clinton delineate a stance. Warren pointed out the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a free trade agreement between the U.S. and 11 other countries being negotiated by the administration, which will need approval from the Republican-controlled U.S. Congress.

“You know we have a big debate going on right now on trade within the Democratic Party,” Warren said, citing her opposition to dispute-resolution language in the trade pact.

1. Maybe Hillary was hoping this thing would be fast tracked before she had to have a position

 

on it. Her advisers, I guess, will tell her what her position is.

2. Headline is untrue..

She did NOT say Hillary Clinton needs to do anything. She was asked to name one issue on which she would like to see Clinton delineate a stance.

Two word: CLICK BAIT

..and then , Sen Warren goes on to say her view is that one egregious provision should be removed ( before passage , presumably ) , not that the whole thing should be torn up...interesting.

3. By all means feel free to contact Reuters and have them change the headline.

4. Let's face it: Reuters' primary purpose is to troll DU and attack Hillary supporters

By now, everybody knows that.




Do I really have to add this?
