“It’s no secret that Hillary Clinton badly wants the approval of Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren (and the liberal wing of the party she represents) in advance of the former Secretary of State’s near-certain 2016 bid. There was the meeting between the two at Clinton’s DC house back in December and the various rhetorical bows Clinton has made to Warren’s populist rhetoric over the past few months.
Given that recent history, what Warren had to say about Clinton during an appearance on Al Sharpton’s MSNBC show Tuesday night has to be disappointing to Clintonworld. Here’s the exchange:
Sharpton: A lot of progressives have questions about whether she’ll [Hillary Clinton] be a progressive warrior. what would you say to them?
Warren: You know, I think that’s what we gotta see. I want to hear what she wants to run on and what she says she wants to do. that’s what campaigns are supposed to be about.
Um, ok. If you look up the definition of “lukewarm,” you find Warren’s statement.”* The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur breaks it down.
