Hillary Clinton has been aggressively courting America’s most prominent Native American Senator, Elizabeth Warren (D-$8.5M Net Worth) for months now, hoping against hope that the self-appointed champion of the people would join her campaign rather than work against it. The sell was tough: Warren would have to abandon her progressive principles more than she already does on a daily basis, in order to openly rubberstamp a campaign that has a designated donation pipeline flowing straight from Wall Street C-suites.
While Warren has been playing along for a while, ultimately, she may be forced to abandon the promise of, say, one day heading up the SEC, where she could live out her American dream burning bankers at the stake one by one, and back her main man, fellow progressive Bernie Sanders. At least, unofficially.
Massachusetts U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren isn’t ruling out joining ultra-liberal Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders on the campaign trail in New Hampshire, saying she’s not surprised at all that the Vermont senator is surging in the polls and drawing enthusiastic Granite State audiences.
“Bernie’s out talking about the issues that the American people want to hear about,” Warren, who hasn’t endorsed anyone in the Democratic primary yet, told the Herald yesterday.
Asked if she would campaign with Sanders at some point, she didn’t dismiss the idea.
“Too early to say,” she said.
She ultimately fell short of a ringing endorsement, because, as the Globe points out, Bernie Sanders is unlikely to snag the nomination (at least, he’s not there yet), and she’d rather hedge her bets, endorsing his positions (thus making her argument stronger with Clinton on some progressive issues), while not endorsing his candidacy, lest that position as the banking industry’s Chief Inquisitor remains open. She knows that her endorsement is valuable, and she will trade her wampum only for what its worth.
