Video: Why Did Joe Biden Return to D.C. Specifically to Meet With Elizabeth Warren?


Verrry interesting. So, just for fun (if you’re a political junkie and don’t have a life) on a Saturday night, here are two scenarios I was discussing earlier this evening with a Virginia Democratic political operative regarding what Biden and Warren might have discussed: 1) Biden was meeting with Warren to get a feel for what she might do if he ran for President (e.g., endorse him? run herself?); 2) the two of them talked about running as some sort of “ticket,” in which Biden would pledge – as he reportedly has considered – to serve only one term, meaning that VP Elizabeth Warren would be the heir apparent for 2020. What’s more likely, that Warren would endorse Biden if he ran, would take that as an opportunity to throw her own hat in the ring, would team up with Biden for a de facto “ticket” (and if so, what percent of Sanders supporters – many of whom originally were Warren supporters – would defect to Biden/Warren?), or none of the above? Also check out the analysis of CNN’s Jeff Zeleny in the following video (note: Zeleny specifically discounts the “ticket” idea). Ah, political intrigue…

    …the idea of listening his ramble and gaffe his way through four years as president makes me dizzy…

    I like the idea of a Biden/Warren ticket. It would kick the protective shell that HRC is in pretty good.  Maybe enough to get her to change a bit.

    But, getting back to why I am not happy with the DNC, is the HRC is going to be president meme. She has not gotten a lot going to stir things up for the faithful.  Although there maybe a lot of those from 2008 ready to devote all to her, I am not.  I liked her back then, but ultimately went to Obama (a choice to ponder for a long time).

    Right now all we have are people who have been collecting Social Security, or capable of doing so, for many years.  They are all old.  They do not even remotely resonate with the Millennials except as grandparents or even great-grandparents.  My summer interns discussed politics as if walking through the market. Like this one, vote. Don’t like this one, change channels.  They are into politics, but not the way we are.  Most are not interested in party, and register indie.  HRC is nothing special to them.  They also are not interested in voting for their grandparents.
