Elizabeth Warren: Democrats see her as VP contender instead of 2020 coronavirus

Biden spent most of the Democratic primary in a promise to restore decency to American political culture. Warren took part in the call for “big, structural change” that took him to the top of the vote in the summer of 2019, but this year has not translated into success. The heart of Biden’s appeal remains steady, but as the coronavirus diminishes, he begins to telegraph a more ambitious policy agenda – a political initiative, a desire to work with opportunities and scales that many of Warren’s allies believe he has to shepherd through the government’s glamorous gear. Uniquely qualified for

The possibility of ticket sharing remains even after the primary where occasional direct and personal collisions between the two are another indicator of the fluidity of the race.

In November 2019, Warren responded to Biden’s criticism by accusing him of “repeating Republican talk points” against his “Medical for All” plan and advising the former vice president, in his position on the issue, to “run to the wrong presidential primary.” . “Biden came back to an unusually deceptive medium post and called Warren – though not by name – to take” my path or highway approach, “he said,” respecting the millions of Democrats who have a different point of view. “

That episode, however, now resonates with only one outlet, a rare – and brief – open contest in a contest that rarely saw them. He has been suffering from Biden’s praise since Warren was dropped in March. His “decency,” he told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddox in an interview after he left the race, “comes a lot from what he does.”

Earlier this week, Biden tweeted a video of the pair wanting to call and thank a small dollar donor – a personal touch appointed by the Massachusetts senator during his own campaign.

“I used to call my donors,” said one supporter in the clip, “but it wasn’t so much for me until (Warren) supported me.”

Warren was also inspired by the former vice president’s efforts – especially in his March decision to support Warren’s consumer bankruptcy reform plan, which opened up new avenues for student debt relief. It caused controversy among them for decades, when they famously spread it during Capitol Hill hearings. A source familiar with Warren’s thinking said it meant a lot to him that Biden had adopted his bankruptcy plan when he left office.

Nevertheless, Biden’s decision-making process is expected to take several weeks, if not months. Even when he and Warren came together on the issue of a few hot buttons, there is still a significant political gap between the middle column and the progressive icon. Warren is widely regarded as a “team player”, but the degree to which Biden is willing to hand over significant power to an ideological opponent, and what Warren was willing to accept as a partnership, remains an open question.

More personal communication

The question that lingers as a result of this spring’s rise to interest in Warren’s possibilities is that he frequently turns to the question of how he and Biden are – or are in the process of making – a personal connection to being a personal partner. Want.

A source familiar with the Biden-Warren relationship acknowledged that the pair “don’t necessarily have to be friends”, but both believe the other is in politics “for the right reasons”.

“I would argue that they are very sympathetic,” the source said, adding that Biden himself used a word when discussing the decision. “Personal relationships are a part of it, but so is how you see the world.”

However, this potential connection has grown in recent weeks – as the senator mourns the death of his brother, Donald Reed Herring, who died in Covid-19. Warren recounted his conversation with Biden in a recent interview. Atlantic.

Biden contacted Warren shortly after his brother’s death, the source said. Speaking to The Atlantic, he described the exchange as “” a man trying to comfort someone who has lost a loved one who has just lost a loved one. A source familiar with their discussions said Warren and Biden have spoken several times now, both before and after his brother’s death, after they withdrew from the race.

Warren was on the other end of similar calls.

Morshed Jahed, a former associate and progressive operative of former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, rang his phone on the morning of his father’s funeral in March 2018.

“He’s talked to me and I can’t say in words how powerful the thing is,” Jahed said. “And then on the anniversary of Dad’s death he called me a year later. So when I read the story of Biden and Warren being linked to grief – it’s strong. It’s a bond you can’t fully explain.”

“I saw that paragraph (from the Atlantic) and it hit me right away,” he said. “It’s like, ‘OK, not everyone will pick it up, but it’s not a lip service, the thing matters’ and it creates a different kind of chemistry.”

The Biden campaign has been rigorously publicized about its process, and keeps a shorter shortlist than one from public announcements and appearances, which seems to sway among candidates. Asked why he felt the extended opening on behalf of Warren, Sarah Nelson, international president of the Association of Flight Attendants, hinted at a certain moment that Biden and his team chose to highlight.

“I see activity that demonstrates this,” said Nelson, a growing influential labor leader. “Elizabeth Warren grilled Steve Manuchein (Tuesday) around the implementation of the Cares Act … consistent with what we were saying. Biden highlighted it and broadened it with a thread of tweet.”

The first director of the Warren-built Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, who has worked closely with him and Biden, told CNN that he believes a new economic crisis – and the likelihood that it could persist for years without significant intervention – is Warren’s emerging stock.

He further suggested that Biden and Warren have more in common than many others for the policy differences they initially spread.

“Both of them have a very personal strain on the policy. They see Biden in his middle-class upbringing and Elizabeth below,” Cordre said. “And it’s something that both of them haven’t lost in the public sphere for many years. A lot of people take some sort of step from their roots, but neither of them ever did.”

Coronavirus effect

“The crisis has clearly changed things,” said Rep. Rowe Khanna, former vice-president of the Army Barney Sanders’ campaign, who made the case last week in favor of Biden choosing Warren as his running mate. “This requires a bold, structured program because it was difficult to make this argument when we were unemployed.”

Other Warren allies identified his pandemic as pre-epidemic Cassandra, whose warning that the summer of 2019 was a “push” away from another collapse of the economy was largely ignored. When he did his best to work with the coronavirus earlier this year in the country, several plans were made for him, which were also largely ignored.

Progressive political strategist Rebecca Katz said, “Elizabeth Warren returned in January and planned to carry the carnovirus. No one else was talking about it then.” “He had a plan for the health crisis and the economic crisis surrounding the coronavirus. Imagine if we did what we suggested in the plans a few months ago – where would we be now?”

Katz also hinted at the political brand that brought him into the race, helping him rise to the top of the primary field last year, when he ran in the election when Democrats accepted him as a candidate with a “plan”. “For everything.

“You don’t have to make it a new message,” Katz said. “Warren came up with a plan and it was something that people found out about a year later. It’s not abstract.”

Biden and his team say the decision will ultimately face two key wages: the partnership that can be expected at the White House is likely to reflect the close relationship he shared with President Barack Obama. And his choice is to climb and lead when needed with little or no training in the job.

Biden's campaign has been announced by the Vice Presidential Election Committee

Most Democrats undoubtedly express Warren’s ability to take action – and to take action if necessary.

“I don’t claim to know who (Biden) is going to be elected, but as far as I’m concerned, I think he should become someone who has the necessary qualifications to be vice president,” says Jim Manley, Red’s long-term support. “And I’m not sure everyone who discusses meets this criterion.”

Like Warren?

“That’s right. I mean, she’s a woman!” Dr. Manley. “He obviously has a policy chop, but perhaps more importantly, he knows how to get things done in order to gain power in the regulatory process.”

Recent CBS News Poll Suggests that a huge number of Democratic voters would be Warne’s popular choice. More than 7-in-10 respondents said he should be considered for the slot. Sen. Orange Harris was her closest competitor, with 59%. Fifty percent named Georgia’s global candidate Stacey Abrams and 49 percent listed Sen. Amy Cloboucher.

Beaten against each other, Warren moved to the top again, and 36% named him first choice. Harris’ position is 19%. Abrams and Klobucher are third and fourth, respectively.

A CNN national poll earlier this month found Warren favored by 9% of Democratic voters and negatively by 19%.

Warren’s allies formed their case

Progressives are reluctant to suffer too much for Warren in public for a variety of reasons.

Sanders has taken the opportunity, both publicly and privately, to sue Biden’s team. His longtime veteran adviser, Jeff Weaver, also expressed frustration that he was “taking the same position as Bernie Sanders, which is: it’s a decision (biden) to make for yourself.”

But Weeder, who recently launched a Super PAC to support Biden, echoed other top progressive voices with specific praise.

“Senator Warren has a long history of being very attentive to staff as a way to influence progressive change,” he told CNN. “And obviously it will be an incredibly valuable skill of administration.”
