Elizabeth Warren rose to political fame by attacking Wall Street – which is ironic considering that she practically endorsed Wall Street in backing Hillary Clinton for President.
It’s been widely speculated that Warren is near the top of the list when it comes to Hillary’s VP picks. That speculation was fueled further when the two met in private on June 10th.
In fact, slightly over 1 in 4 people placing bets on who Hillary’s VP nominee will be are putting their money on Warren.
Quite hilariously however, Warren has been an opponent of Hillary for over a decade.
Elizabeth Warren once accused Hillary Clinton of being in the pocket of big credit card companies.
Before insisting that she would not be running for president in 2016, Sen. Elizabeth Warren was viewed as a major threat among Democrats to Hillary Clinton’s White House aspirations — many in the party viewed her backing down as a quasi-crowning of the former secretary of state as the eventual nominee.
In a recently uncovered video, taken from a 2004 broadcast of PBS’ “Now with Bill Moyer,” Warren said, “the industry that gave the most money to Washington over the past few years was not the oil industry, not the oil industry; it was consumer credit products. Those are the people. The credit card companies.”
While Warren initially praised Clinton for helping to defeat bankruptcy legislation while her husband was president, the Massachusetts senator then lamented how much Hillary’s time in the Senate had changed her.
Hillary “has taken money from those groups,” Warren said, referring to credit card companies, “but more importantly, she views them as a constituency… This is the scary part about democracy today. We’re talking again about the impact of money.”
If Warren does become Hillary’s VP, what a sign of the times it’ll reflect. Hillary Clinton is so universally hated that even her own VP can’t stand her.
