Hillary Clinton Elizabeth Warren Dual Ticket Could Be Unstoppable for 2016

Hillary Clinton Elizabeth Warren 2016 Campaign
Hillary Clinton remains the Democratic front-runner in every poll across the board. However, a freshman senator from Massachusetts, Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), is making significant waves in the political landscape, especially among liberals and progressives. Imagine if these two ladies were to ultimately join forces and create a unified platform, such as overturning the recent U.S. Supreme Court Hobby Lobby decision, what potential reforms could be achieved. Could a Hillary Clinton and Elizabeth Warren dual ticket be the answer to the Democratic Party’s prayers and prove unstoppable for the 2016 Campaign?

It is certainly an interesting match-up and combination of strengths and talents. On one hand, there is Clinton, who is a veteran politician and former first lady (FLOTUS). Additionally, she has also served as a well-loved and respected senator from New York, as well as a former Secretary of State. Moreover, she has also had the benefit of vast prior experience with presidential bids–from her husband’s successful presidential bid and subsequent two-term presidency (1992-2000), as well as her own previous presidential bid in 2008, during which she was ultimately defeated by Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) for the Democratic nomination. Subsequently, Obama went onto win the presidency twice and Clinton was appointed to his cabinet as Secretary of State. Her political pedigree and experience is undeniable.

On the other hand, there is Warren, who is an inexperienced politician and has managed to become a hero of the Democratic party’s economic populists by railing against high student loan debt, as well as garnered attention on the platform of the political system being “rigged” by powerful lobbyists and the wealthy. This is also at a time when Clinton has received six-figure speaking fees on college campuses. In response, Clinton has stated that those speaking fees are passed along to her family’s foundation. However, she has stumbled and become flustered on recent inquiries into her family’s personal wealth. While Warren might not have the former FLOTUS’ political experience, she does possess an impassioned attitude and an outsider’s perspective, which could potentially work in her favor. It could also prove beneficial if Hillary Clinton and Elizabeth Warren were to join forces and create a potentially unstoppable dual ticket for a 2016 presidential bid.

Both women possess unique perspectives and intriguing ideas, yet they have vastly different approaches and attitudes. It could be said that Clinton is a seasoned political or establishment insider, who has learned to accomplish her goals via working within the system. Whereas Warren is an ingenue political outsider, who could be considered a rabble-rouser and is ready to fight for what is right, as well as call attention to the fractured, corrupt political system and make inroads to fix it. Each woman has the ability to engage a crowd and attract a support base. However, they approach things from diametrically opposed viewpoints. Clinton is a poised, seasoned, and thoughtful speaker who considers her actions and remarks carefully. She is a consummate political chess player, who has learned from experience to consider the “big picture” and always plan three to five moves ahead. By contrast, Warren lacks political seasoning and tends to act from the gut. She speaks her mind and from the heart. She could be considered a pugilist among politicians. The freshman senator recognized a flawed system and has demanded action be taken to correct it.

While Hillary Clinton remains the Democratic front-runner for a 2016 presidential bid, freshman Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts is making significant waves within the political landscape, especially among liberals and progressives. The ingenue senator is bringing a bold and impressive vigor to significant and long neglected issues that require attention and resolution. She has also excited the populist debate in a fashion not seen in ages. Imagine if these two ladies were to ultimately join forces and combine platforms, what extraordinary goals could be achieved. This is, of course, dependent on whether or not Clinton opts to declare her candidacy again, and if Warren could be encouraged to join the presidential bid and create a dual ticket with the former FLOTUS. Could a Hillary Clinton and Elizabeth Warren dual ticket be the answer to the Democratic Party’s prayers and prove unstoppable for the 2016 Campaign? Only time will tell as the prospective candidates have many options to weigh and decisions to make for their own lives and families, as well as the good of the nation.

    You can’t “overturn” Hobby Lobby. It’s not something you can legislate around. Sort of changing the makeup of the court this issue is DECIDED. They ruled on CONSTITUTIONAL grounds, meaning any further laws which attempted to force a closely held private corporation to cover the abortion pill would simply be bills of attainder.

      Yes, that is true. However, state legislation can be adopted to mitigate the effects of the Hobby Lobby decision. Many states, including New York, are already adopting bills to combat the decision. Thank you for your contribution.
