A private meeting between Elizabeth Warren and Hillary Clinton this morning is fueling speculation that the Clinton camp might be entertaining the possibility of making Warren her running mate.
The hour-long meeting came a day after Warren formally endorsed Clinton. To many, the choice of the Massachusetts senator as VP pick makes sense, with her work reining in the Big Banks and her focus on reducing income inequality. They see Warren as the bridge to the liberal wing of the Democratic Party, as well as a draw for disenchanted Bernie Sanders supporters.
Warren, for her part, seems to have taken it upon herself to assume the traditional “attack dog” role of the VP, going after Donald Trump at every turn.
But is Warren the right choice for the Clinton campaign? Can she connect with working-class white voters that make up Trump’s base?
