She is priming for a VP spot? I hope not. Really think she would be better with Bernie. Too socialistic for my tastes. She is Promoting. Biden’s agenda I think. The Mayor and Harris are also on the tube tonight.

Yes she's a frontrunner and she deserves to be after running such an influential and relatively successful primary campaign for President.

I don't think she will be chosen for VP but who knows? Fox News seems to think it's going to be Tammy Duckworth.

Some lawmakers have to be on the people's side, they can't all be corporatists. I'm very appreciative of Sen. Warren's work.

Warren has always been outspoken on economic matters. Why the hell would you expect her to be silent now? She priming for her point of view and being on the VP vetting list doesn't change that, thank goodness.

Faux News wants it to be Duckworth because it'll set up some highly inappropriate responses from Dumbf and his ilk. That's all they really want… Sucker Carlson's already salivating and sending out invitations.

Q: You don’t think capitalists are bad people?

[Warren] A: I am a capitalist. Come on. I believe in markets. What I don’t believe in is theft, what I don’t believe in is cheating. That’s where the difference is. I love what markets can do, I love what functioning economies can do. They are what make us rich, they are what create opportunity. But only fair markets, markets with rules. Markets without rules is about the rich take it all, it’s about the powerful get all of it. And that’s what’s gone wrong in America.

Birdwalking: I've had this persistent notion lately that Obama would make a great Secretary of State at the beginning of Biden's term as president. There's a lot of Obama's foreign policy that I disagreed with, but he also did some good hard stuff - like the nuclear deal with Iran. I think he would be a good Secretary of State not because he is a foreign policy savant, but because I think he's nearly the perfect person to repair important foreign relations with allied democracies of the world. I think he has developed a personal gravitas within the international community as a whole that can help him do some repair of our relations worldwide - including both allies and not allies.

Oh, and Putin would absolutely hate for Obama to become Secretary of State.

I don’t see that Duckworth has said anything inappropriate. What could they bring up? Discussion on memorial take downs doesn’t seem controversial to me...or unpatriotic.

Do you want to win back the Senate or not?

If she leaves the Senate, that Dem Senate seat will be GOP as it will be appointed by the current Governor.

I don't want any Senator plucked out of there until we know it's safe. Ergo, no Senator for VP nomination, please.

And certainly not one from a state with a GOP governor.

This is an all-hands-on-deck scenario.

That would put Harris in play. If she's the selectee, Newsom will probably appoint himself for no other reason than to get out of Dodge and away from the carnage the pandemic is doing in California.

He has a backbone more suited for a senate seat than a governor's chair.
