Desperation? Warren as Veep
Now that Queen Hillary has secured the Demo nomination and been endorsed by President Obama and Senator Elizabeth Warren, the worthless corporate main stream media is floating multiple stories that Warren will be chosen as the vice presidential candidate. This is a fanciful idea I suspect floated by the Clinton campaign to assuage the "Bernie or Bust" crowd and to make Clinton appear to be unifying the party and to appear "progressive".
In addition to providing phony optics for the progressive crowd, I suspect it is a way to lessen Clinton's unfavorable rating which has improved in the last few days from a high of 57% to less than 50%. Whether it is a move of desperation or a philosophical realignment on Clinton's part does not change a simply fact. It is a dumb idea!
Why, you ask? For several reasons, one being that Senator Warren is an effective voice in the Senate for progressive pro-equality ideas. Second, she is from a state with a Republican governor, thanks to the lazy, apathetic demos who did not vote in 2014 state election, and hence would likely bring another worthless Republican into the Senate. That defeats the purpose of regaining Demo control of the body in 2016. Third, for Warren to accept the VP slot would suggest to true progressives that she is a fraud and just another party insider.
If the Clinton campaign has an ounce of sense which is debatable they would select the current Secretary of Labor, Thomas E. Perez, who has a distinguished resume and happens to be of Latino heritage which considering the Latino voting block could be beneficial to the campaign. Of course, we have to consider the fact that the party insiders: the Goldman Sachs, Big Pharma, Big Oil, healthcare lobbyists, etc. are only looking to win the election and don't really care what the voters want.
