According to NBC Hillary Clinton has been talking behind the scenes with 2020 Presidental candidate Elizabeth Warren.
Elizabeth Warren’s team doesn’t want to talk about Hillary Clinton, but that doesn’t mean the 2020 presidential candidate isn’t talking with her party’s 2016 nominee.
The two women have kept a line of communication open since the Massachusetts senator decided to run for president — though only a conversation around the time of Warren’s launch has been previously reported — according to several people familiar with their discussions who spoke to NBC on the condition of anonymity because of the political sensitivity of private interactions.
It’s hard to know exactly how many times they’ve reached out to each other — or precisely what they’ve discussed — in part because neither camp wants to reveal much of anything about their interaction and in part because they have each other’s phone numbers, and there are many ways for two high-powered politicians to communicate that don’t involve their staffs.
One source was aware of just one additional call between Warren and Clinton since then. But a person who is close to Clinton said the contact has been substantial enough to merit attention, describing a conversation between the two as seemingly recent because it was “front of mind” for her.
“That has clearly not gone unnoticed, and I think she really appreciates that,” the person close to Clinton said.
This could help Warren at the convention:
More important, an explicit or implicit blessing from Clinton could help Warren if she finds herself battling for delegates and superdelegates at a contested Democratic convention next summer.
“Hillary Clinton would absolutely have influence over a number of delegates to this convention,” said Deb Kozikowski, the vice chair of the Massachusetts Democratic Party.
I wonder what Hillary really wants from this. There is no way Hillary Clinton would throw her support behind someone without getting something in return. Her becoming Vice President still really sticks in my mind. I would never put it past Hillary to be plotting for the Vice President spot. With that being said I don’t see why Warren would want her to be Vice President. Hillary Clinton is one of the least popular people in the US. Adding her to the ticket will likely bring down the popularity of a Warren ticket.
You can never truly count Hillary Clinton out so it will be interesting to see what her next move is.
