Three Things Will Happen Quickly if Biden and Warren Decide to Run Together

August 22, 2015

It was reported today that Joe Biden had a meeting with Elizabeth Warren fueling speculation of a Biden/Warren ticket in 2016. It’s worth noting that Monica Crowley predicted this last week.

If this actually happens, three things will immediately become apparent.

1. Hillary Clinton is finished.
Progressive activists who make up the base of the Democratic Party will go nuts for this ticket. Hillary Clinton, who is already damaged goods, will lose tons of support.

2. Bernie who?
Bernie Sanders has been nothing more than a stand-in for Elizabeth Warren. If she’s in the running, 99 percent of the people who are flocking to Bernie Sanders rallies will drop him instantly and throw their support behind Warren. The Bernie Sanders campaign will become a speed bump in the road to 2016 overnight.

3. The media will have a collective orgasm.
If Biden and Warren run together, the media will revert to the cult-like coverage they gave to Obama in 2008. Biden’s gaffes will become endearing and folksy. Any mention of Warren’s lies about being a Native American will be declared racist and sexist.

    How will Biden and Warren notify Hillary? They will send an email.

    Biden meeting with Warren is a way for Biden to grab her supporters – seeking her stamp of approval so the nomination process goes smoothly. Nor will Warren be Biden’s veep; someone younger will be sought. Castro or O’Malley.
