Liberals vastly overestimate Elizabeth Warren’s appeal and Trump could beat Hillary in November for a number of different reasons. Still, it’s fun to watch people on the left admit Hillary might lose no matter the reason.
The liberal Huffington Post is convinced not choosing Warren as VP was a mistake:
In Bypassing Warren As VP, Clinton Raises Risk Of Losing To Trump
Hillary Clinton’s decision to pass over populist Democrat Elizabeth Warren to name Virginia Governor Tim Kaine (dubbed “Vanilla Nice” by Politico), as her Vice Presidential running mate, makes it more likely that the dreadful Donald Trump becomes our next President.
Clinton’s decision is a carefully calculated risk for the Democratic nominee: that the 12 million primary voters who defied the establishment to enthusiastically vote for Bernie Sanders will have no choice but to vote for Hillary in November. As reported here, Clinton believes that her focus needs to be on convincing white men, who overwhelmingly support Trump, that she is a better choice than Trump because she has a centrist white man on her ticket.
In response to concerns that the Democrats would risk losing a Senate majority if Hillary should choose Warren as her VP because Warren’s Senate seat would then be filled by a Republican Governor, Harry Reid did his legal homework. He reported to the public that the Governor’s selection of a Republican Senate replacement would only last a few months. The seat would be quickly be voted upon in a special election that Massachusetts State law requires.
Democrats could have Warren as VP and still win control of the Senate, Reid assured the public.
As HuffPost blogger Miles Mogulescu wrote last month, “The Democratic Party has two, almost equal wings: A centrist Clinton wing and a progressive Warren-Sanders wing. Picking Warren would help unite them into one mighty bird that could soar to victory. Or Hillary could choose a fellow centrist like Kaine and the campaign could flop along on one wing.”
Clinton’s “I Don’t Need Warren” calculation makes a misguided assumption about We, the grassroots people, who turned out by the tens of thousands at rallies across the country for Bernie’s “Second American Revolution.”
Who turned out for a progressive economic agenda.
Who turned out for a peaceful future.
Who turned out for a government for We, the People.
Instead of They, the Corporations.
Democratic Presidential Nominee Hillary Clinton is making a misguided assumption that nearly all Bernie boosters will choose her over Donald Trump in November.
While we are moved and inspired by Sanders, we are by definition independent-minded. Bernie does not control our vote.
Sanders’ endorsement for Hillary Clinton, which will grow stronger as Trump plunges dangerously deeper into a racist, fearful, anti-government psyche, does not mean that Bernie’s voters will fall in line behind Clinton.
The truth is, Hillary Clinton is a horrible candidate.
Elizabeth Warren would not have saved her.
