Yeah, I totally understand people's arguments about Warren making waves in the Senate-she has been fighting the good fight thus far...but dang, the prospect of a Clinton/Warren ticket does sound incredibly appealing... I'd wholeheartedly support that.

read an interesting post this morning that made sense. She could continue in her Senate role, struggling to convince 99 of her colleagues to support her ideas, only to have them swatted away by Congress. Or she could be in the second most powerful seat in the world, only needing to convince 1 person.

Thinking about it this way, puts it in some perspective. I mean, lets be honest, Sanders is a progressive powerhouse, but after almost 30 years in DC... what has come of it?
I believe that Warren could actually bring more change and have a stronger voice as VP.

the best tickets tell an emotional story -- the Man from Hope, Yes We Can.

the two ladies together could spark imagination and emotion.

i think there are drawbacks, especially on paper, but Hillary lacks that magic. together, they could be magic. what she needs is turnout. she has the rational vote locked down. she needs to get people to the polls.

Warren is a fake progressive. To see her align herself with Clinton says it all. Warren, at this point, is only known for attacking the low hanging fruit that is Donald Trump. Meh.

Aren't they all just fake progressives? Who would you consider a real progressive?

Scott is definitely a Faceman (my heterosexual acknowledgment of a good looking dude)

Warren is a significantly better choice than Sanders, as she'll be able to attract Sanders' voters (even though most will vote for Hillary anyways), but without being such a snivelling cunt about it.

Warren is a bit of a double edged sword. Sure you can attract the Bernie crowd and liberal base, but you may risk other votes.

Personally I think it's just fine to have two women on the ticket. However the broader electorate may not be ready for it especially men. Call it sexist, old fashioned, or a desire for balance, it may produce a wash, where for every Bernie voter you pick up you lose another Independent male voter. The demographics are changing in the country but this election will be won or lost on the margins. A Clinton-Warren ticket may push even more white males into the Trump column.

Just playing Devil's Advocate.

Misogyny is alive and well in the US, that's for sure. Still, I think the pros of Warren as VP outweigh the cons.
