E Warren Warning to H Clinton Re Wall Street


For John, BLUFDemocrats decry Republicans as being in the pocket of Wall Street, but so are they.  Nothing to see here; just move along.



From The InstaPundit to The Washington Free Beacon to The LA Times (Trail Guide:  Campaign 2016) to find "Warren warns Clinton not to cozy up to Wall Street".  But Senator Warren isn't running, or so I am told.  Of course I am doubtful of this conventional wisdom.

Anyway, there is the lede:

Sen. Elizabeth Warren did not mention Hillary Clinton by name, but the Massachusetts Democrat had some strong advice for her: Don't get to close to Citibank.

“I think anyone running for that job, anyone who wants the power to make every key economic appointment and nomination across the federal government,” Warren said “should say loud and clear that they agree:  We don't run this country for Wall Street and mega corporations.  We run it for people.”

Hat tip to the InstaPundit.

Could be EW expressing her preference for Bernie without directly offending the pre-selected party pol(s)...

I think Sanders' ascension will freeze anyone sympathetic to his message from daring/deigning to derail his momentum. It's fair to say that that his rise in the polls is completely unexpected--likely even by him. Understanding the rarity of this, it would be hard to imagine someone like Elizabeth Warren jumping in front of the narrative. (Of course, your cynical paranoia will likely cause you to disagree).

So we can see how it will play out. I say Bernie's going to be the rallying point. If he makes it, EW's philosophies will have also won. If he comes up short, it will become the foundation for a run in 4 years. (You heard it here first).

Either way, as far as the Citibank comments go, I'd say she's absolutely right.
