Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) snapped a selfie with Senator Ed Markey (D-Mass.) on Air Force One after President Obama’s recent trip to Boston. Why were they on Air Force One and why were they in Boston?
September 2015 - Boston Herald: "President Obama was the headliner at yesterday’s powerful gathering of Massachusetts union leaders — but that didn’t stop the Bay State’s senior senator from garnering bigger cheers — or from taking a jab at the president’s controversial trade policy. Elizabeth Warren, who spoke before Obama arrived at the Park Plaza Hotel for the annual Greater Boston Labor Day Breakfast, subtly needled the president on his Trans Pacific Partnership trade agreement, which she has criticized as tilting too far toward corporate interests."
Elizabeth Warren has already met with two other Third Way/Centrist Democrats: Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden. Hillary Clinton had summoned Warren to her mansion last December (it was reported that Hillary did not ask Liz to endorse her).
And recently Joe Biden has also met with Senator Elizabeth Warren — who is very popular among "progressive" Democrats and whose supporters currently back Bernie Sanders.
When asked by the Boston Globe, "Was there any talk with the Vice President about a joint ticket, even jokingly?" Warren had laughed and coyly replied: "It was ah ... ah ...it was a long conversation."
Now it appears that Elizabeth Warren is also being courted by another Third Way/Centrist Democrat: President Obama. Pictured below is Senator Elizabeth Warren stepping off Air Force One upon her arrival at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland on September 7, 2015. Warren had returned to Washington with US President Barack Obama who was in Boston to address the Greater Boston Labor Council Labor Day Breakfast.
And where was Bernie Sanders?
Bernie Sanders doesn't just "talk the talk," he "walks the walk" — literally.
Union workers at a plant are on the job without a contract, but are threatening to strike if a deal is not reached with the new owner. The picketers cycled through several chants, including, "Hey, hey, ho, ho, the war on workers has got to go".
Then Bernie Sanders' car drove up. He was handed a sign and took his place in the picket line. Sanders has marched in solidarity with aggrieved workers throughout his career in politics.
Neither Joe Biden, President Obama and Hillary Clinton (pictured below) — nor Elizabeth Warren — had showed up on the picket line.
Senator Elizabeth Warren and the labor unions would be doing a great disservice to American workers if they endorsed someone other than Senator Bernie Sanders.
