“There’s a huge gap between Sen. Warren and any other likely candidate,” said Larry Cohen, former president of the Communications Workers of America union and a close ally of Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt. “She, first of all, understands finance capital and second of all is prepared to wrangle with it. Some of the other candidates I’ve heard about are not prepared to wrangle with it.”…

“Sen. Warren offers a trifecta of policy depth, progressive pro-Scranton values and a proven track record of managing a federal agency to benefit working Americans,” said former Rep. Tom Perriello, D-Va. “Nominating her for [attorney general] or Treasury certainly has compelling upsides for a potential transition eager to be ready for making positive impacts on Day One.”

If Biden wins, the left will break its election-season truce with him almost immediately to get people it wants in important Cabinet and other government roles and keep out people it views as too cozy with corporate interests.
