In her first appearance at a campaign rally with Hillary Clinton, the Democratic nominee, Elizabeth Warren showed exactly why she would be a wonderful Vice-President, and the right person to take down Donald Trump. In fact, any vice-presidential pick Donald Trump chooses to counter Elizabeth Warren would be a pitifully poor one, and no match at all for Warren’s wit, policy knowledge, and skills on the campaign stump.
Warren rightly called out Donald Trump’s selfishness in cheering for Brexit, “What kind of a man does that? What kind of a man roots for people to lose their jobs, to lose their homes, to lose their life savings? I’ll tell you what kind of a man: a small, insecure, money grubber who fights for no one but himself. What kind of a man? A nasty man who will never become president of the United States.” Wow, one can hear the whistle of a missile being aimed and launched right at the heart of the Trump enterprise, and exploding right on target. That was an utterly devastating takedown, and Trump knows it.
If Hillary Clinton goes with Elizabeth Warren, she has everything to gain: excitement, new voter enthusiasm among the liberal base, and a Vice-President who can back her up where it matters most on policy issues. It would be a total landslide in the electoral college if Warren is chosen, and show that it’s not an aberation for two women to run together on a presidential ticket. If two men can run together on the ticket, why not two women? It’s time to dream big here and go for it with Clinton-Warren ‘16!
I think it’s about time this country has women at the very top of the ticket, more women in the Senate and the House, and make our country a more kinder, gentler, and a better place to be that supports all Americans from every background and lift them up to a better future.
And that is precisely why I’m hoping we’ll see a Clinton-Warren ‘16 ticket very soon!
