While tens of Elizabeth Warren’s most dedicated supporters were meeting over veggies and ranch dressing in quiet mid-western living rooms, to discuss how best to support their chosen candidate’s inevitable progressive crusade against Hillary Clinton, Elizabeth Warren herself was pow-wowing (as Elizabeth Warren is wont to do) with Hillary Clinton in her well-appointed DC living room.
After six months of reaching out to Warren, following a chance run-in at a Martha Coakley rally – we’ll call it a Missed Connection, and perhaps the most terrifying one that has ever existed – the two ladies chatted about income inequality and, probably, the latest iteration of The Bachelor over tea and cookies at Clinton’s DC home in secret, as Clinton, apparently, looked to woo the Massachusetts Senator out of the competition.
Hillary Rodham Clinton held a private, one-on-one meeting with Senator Elizabeth Warren in December at Mrs. Clinton’s Washington home, a move by the Democrats’ leading contender in 2016 to cultivate the increasingly influential senator and leader of the party’s economic populist movement.
The two met at Whitehaven, the Clintons’ Northwest Washington home, without aides and at Mrs. Clinton’s invitation.
Mrs. Clinton solicited policy ideas and suggestions from Ms. Warren, according to a Democrat briefed on the meeting, who called it “cordial and productive.” Mrs. Clinton, who has been seeking advice from a range of scholars, advocates and officials, did not ask Ms. Warren to consider endorsing her likely presidential candidacy. Aides to Mrs. Clinton did not immediately respond to requests for comment, and aides to Ms. Warren could not be reached.
Hillary Clinton took this meeting, supposedly, because she’s “developing her economic platform,” which has so far consisted of floating the idea that she was once an ordinary person who, despite six-figure public speaking payouts, could barely make ends meet on her two mansions. Welcoming Warren into the mix might mean that Clinton could allow Warren to do a lot of the dirty work, haranguing financial institutions and their impact on the proletariat, while Ms. Clinton’s husband Bill calms and collects fromWall Street bankers in more private meetings. After all, even though Warren’s down-home background is as disengenous as Clinton’s bouncing checkbook, people seem to buy into Warren’s story more easily, perhaps because of her disarming resemblance to their college English professors.
And all that is probably why news of the meeting is leaking now, and to the New York Times. Even when Barack Obama is facing criticism from liberal insiders over his dynamic foreign policy acheivements, Hillary Clinton is blissfully welcoming in the progressive left with her arms open wide.
