BIDEN + WARREN + HILLARY on the Supreme Court

6 10 2015

Long ago in political time, on 26 August, I floated this idea as a big win for the Democrats.   Biden chooses Warren as his VP and promises he’ll be only a one term President.   Further he makes a personal deal that Hillary that if she plays ball he will nominate her for the Supreme Court, replacing aging Ginsberg, and it will be an all-out fight with the Republicans if they try to block her.  Today, 6 October, the infamous Drudge Report is headlining Biden planning to choose Warren!   Here’s my column from August:

Here’s how the Democrats can keep the White House in 2016 and give all their major players a win-win strategy:

1)   Prevent Clinton and Biden from tearing each other up in primary fights with steps below.
2)   Find way for Hillary to gracefully exit in view of the national security and legal issues.
3)   Prepare for Biden to choose Elizabeth Warren as his VP and promise he will only serve one term.
4)   Get Sanders to focus only on attacking Republicans – get him to agree to campaign for Biden/Warren and offer him major position after the election.
5)   Tell Hillary that if need be Obama will pardon her before leaving office, just as CIA Director  Deutch was pardoned by Pres Clinton for similar transgressions.
6)   Further promise Hillary that if elected Biden will nominate her for the Supreme Court to replace Ruth Ginsberg.
