Oh my. Little Donnie is deathly afraid of Elizabeth Warren. Just listen to this…
I’m so mad listening to the derogatory way he speaks about Warren and the lies that he spews about her.
I think I’m beginning to agree with Josh Marshall at TPM.
I wrote recently that I thought Elizabeth Warren would be a great Veep pick but it wouldn’t happen because it would add to the burden of retaking the Senate. Massachusetts has a Republican governor. That would mean at least 6 months or so of an additional Republican senator in 2017 – assuming Clinton wins.
But I’m reconsidering that. In fact, I’m past reconsidering: Hillary should put Warren on the ticket…
…Warren is off-the-cuff, free-wheeling and direct in all the ways Clinton is cautious and rehearsed. But it is a reinforcing rather than an invidious contrast and likely helps bring to the surface Hillary’s progressive background that has been buried by decades at the pinnacle of Democratic party politics and years as the punching bag of the left of the party which feels excluded by the seemingly endless Clinton ascendency.
It may sound crazy to attach so much to her recent Twitter contretemps with Donald Trump. But the tone, rhythm and style are exactly what the Democrats need to knock Trump down and bring out his toxic mix of personal insecurity and emotional instability. It’s not over-earnest or off-key or droning (traditional Democratic tonalities – let’s be honest). She’s mocking, substantive and constantly on target.
Indeed, Trump’s responses to Warren, his attacks on her, make it clear to me he’ll have a hard time handling her.
He won’t win a twitter war with Warren. Or any other kind of war.
