If Hillary Clinton wins the nomination, should she choose Elizabeth Warren as her running mate? | The Tylt
The Democratic primary isn't over yet, but Hillary Clinton's delegate lead is secure enough that many consider her the presumptive nominee. After a bruising primary in which she's faced serious challenges from Bernie Sanders and her party's left wing, Clinton's choice of running mate could help win back disaffected Democrats who think of her as a play-it-safe establishment shill.
A headline from USA Today yesterday claimed Clinton is "looking for a VP who will be [a] fighter [and] excite Sanders supporters." Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren's got those anti-establishment credentials. She was elected on a pro-middle-class and anti-big bank platform. Also, her bona fides as a staunch advocate for American workers could help Clinton in an area where she's vulnerable.
Should Clinton choose Warren as her VP?
Some say two women on a ticket would definitely be a bold choice for a country that has never had a woman as head of state, but sexism could harm the ticket's chances. Warren is also notably the only Democratic senator who hasn't endorsed a candidate in the primary. Also, she claims not to be interested in a presidential run. Instead of inoculating Clinton against critiques that she's Wall Street's favorite candidate, Warren's outspoken criticism of the American financial system could be used by the opposition to underscore Clinton's ties to big banks.
