On the day that Kamala Harris dropped out of the primary, I tweeted “Harris just became the MVP in the veepstakes.” That seems obvious in retrospect because nearly everyone else in the race has been tripping over themselves to let the media know they would definitely, absolutely, no-questions-asked be looking at her as a running mate. Now you can add one more name to the list. Elizabeth Warren is sure that America is ready for an all-female ticket and a “No Boys Allowed” sign on the door of the Oval Office. (Associated Press)
Elizabeth Warren said Sunday she believes Americans are ready for a presidential ticket with two women at the top, rejecting concerns from some Democrats that a woman can’t beat President Donald Trump.
“Sure, why not?” the Democratic presidential candidate told The Associated Press in an interview ahead of a town hall campaign event in Charleston. “I think (voters) would support a lot of different combinations.”
In the aftermath of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 defeat, some Democrats have expressed hesitation about nominating another woman to take on Trump in 2020. But Warren argued that women notched historic wins during the 2018 midterms, suggesting voters are worried less about gender than the message candidates are offering.
So this wasn’t quite so much an invitation to Harris as it was a statement that she’s “willing to consider” Harris as her running mate. But she’s willing to consider all sorts of combinations in the interest of getting it right.
