Thirteen Of Fourteen Democratic Women Senators To Endorse Hillary Clinton, But Not Elizabeth Warren!

There are 20 women in the US Senate, with 14 of them being Democrats, and 6 being Republicans.

News has emerged that 13 of the 14 women Democratic Senators are about to endorse Hillary Clinton for President.

The exception is Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren.

Warren is seen as much more to the left on many issues than Hillary Clinton, really much closer in views and attitudes to Independent Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders, who is also running for President, but not gaining any significant support from fellow Senators.

The question is whether Warren will endorse Sanders, who is still seen as a long shot for the Democratic Presidential nomination.

Warren is keeping her options open, but at the end, she will endorse Hillary when it is clear that Sanders cannot win the nomination.

Until then, Warren is effectively making Hillary Clinton squirm!

    It is good that Massachusetts U.S. senator Elizabeth Warren has not endorsed Hillary Clinton for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination.

    Warren is a lot closer to Vermont U.S. senator Bernie Sanders on policy ideas.

    The rate it’s going, we’ve been subjected to a love fest for Hillary Clinton which suggests she would easily win her party’s presidential nomination…perhaps to the tune of 40 or more states.

    What is not good about this is that there are differences between Clinton and Sanders. One example is on college tuition. Another is on dealing with Wall Street’s corruption.

    When the people, let alone party establishment, self-identifying as Democratic, and those self-identifying as liberal, rally behind one candidate without regard for specifics in policies…all it tells me is that they’re organizing for the primaries but that, in reality, it doesn’t say much about what these self-identifying Democrats and liberals believe should be our policies. Well, that went on in 2004. And we know what happened then.

    I don’t think these endorsements are motivating to too many people outside Washington, D.C. They can be; and that was suggestive with the 2008 Democratic primaries season. But, most times, they are not important enough.
