Let’s see if this CNN clip will work (looks fine on my screen, but who knos the ways of FYWP?). Just in case, here’s the link.
Separate videos (where I saw this first) available at Mother Jones:
Hillary Clinton and Elizabeth Warren took a little trip to Ohio today to see the sights, do some antiquing, and eviscerate Donald Trump…
They have a pretty good buddy cop situation going on here. Maybe Clinton will make her VP after all?
Sigh. Why must y’all keep trying to steal my senior Senator? (Yes, I will most certainly reconcile myself if necessary, but I’d love to see Senator Warren leading the Senate under President Clinton.)
Local news outlet Cleveland.com:
… Standing under large art deco murals of workers at Cincinnati’s Union Terminal, Clinton and Warren called for regulations on Wall Street, punishing companies that send jobs overseas, making college debt-free and raising taxes on the rich…
“We’ve got to go big and we’ve got to go bold,” Clinton said to a crowd of hundreds, their loud cheers amplified in the cavernous terminal lobby. “We need to take the frustration, the fear, the anxiety and yes, the anger. And after we have vented it, we’ve got to work together.”
Clinton pledged: “I will not raise taxes on the middle class. But we are going to raise taxes on corporations and the wealthy.”
Clinton also said Trump “tried to turn a global economic challenge into an infomercial” when the billionaire businessman said the “Brexit” could help business at his Scottish golf course by lowering the value of the British pound against the dollar.
Warren, who is reportedly on the short list of possible Clinton VP picks, fulfilled a key role a Democratic running mate will have to play this year: repeatedly going on the attack against Trump.
“Donald Trump says he’ll make America great again. It’s right there, stamped on the front of his goofy hat. You want to see goofy? Look at him in that hat,” Warren said, referring to Trump’s repeated tweets calling her “goofy.”…
Mr. Pierce, at Esquire:
… This was the first time that Senator Professor Warren actively campaigned on the same stage as Hillary Rodham Clinton and, since SPW does nothing by half-measures, she threw herself into the event—and, therefore, into the campaign—with all the brio she brings to everything she does… As expected, she went to town on He, Trump. “Talk about goofy,” she said, turning his adjectival dagger around. “Have you seen him in that hat?”
“You know,” she said, “I could do this all day.” And likely will, sometime very soon…
The whole theme of the day was Stronger Together, and it might even work one day. It remains more difficult than it ought to be for HRC to cast herself in the role of populist champion; there’s still just too much history and too many fat honoraria checks in the way. (And, god help us, she should lose the part in her stump speech that seems to imply that she grew up hauling huge bolts of drapery material around the living room. Nobody’s buying it.) Those people who watch SPW and see only either a potential vice president, or an attack-dog fastened to the seat of He, Trump’s pants, are missing a considerable point. She’s also the connection to the party’s deepest current enthusiasms. Should HRC win, she is going to be considerably in debt to the other woman who was onstage Monday. SPW is out there to keep the nominee honest…
They looked like a ticket.
You had to give them that, although I still think it shouldn’t happen, and I’ve increasingly come to believe it won’t happen… These were two powerful, accomplished women, on stage at the same time, and with a common purpose, if distinctly different styles and methods of how to accomplish that purpose…
