Senator Elizabeth Warren, darling of the progressives, hasn't endorsed Hillary Clinton and so far has resisted repeated invitations from her fellow female solons on the Democratic side of the aisle to join them in New Hampshire to help Mrs. Clinton. The Hill reports:
A group of Democratic senators is taking a bus tour of New Hampshire this weekend to stump for Clinton, and they want the liberal Massachusetts powerhouse to get on board. Clinton narrowly defeated Sanders in the Iowa caucuses earlier this week, but the Vermont senator is a heavy favorite to win New Hampshire.
A few of the senators have discussed with Warren the possibility of publicly backing Clinton. However, they’ve been careful not to put a lot of public pressure on their colleague, who is fiercely independent and has a loyal following among progressives.
“I’m hopeful she’ll join us. I’m hopeful she’ll join the revolution that will allow us to come together to elect” the first female president, said Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.), one of Clinton’s staunchest supporters.
Asked if she or other senators had approached Warren personally, Stabenow said, “We all talk about it,” but declined to reveal what Warren has said in response.
Sen. Barbara Mikulski (Md.), the dean of the Senate’s Democratic women, has also talked to Warren about backing Clinton.
“I’ve told Sen. Warren that we would welcome her anytime she’s ready,” she said.
Well, of course we don't want to jump to conclusions–though a few present themselves.
Could it be that Senator Warren will go with Bernie Sanders? Maybe she is just waiting for the right time to get on the Hillary bandwagon–or bus? Or maybe she envisions for herself a role far bigger than that of endorser?
