Could Bernie overtake Hillary if?

Last edited Sun Feb 21, 2016, 09:46 PM - Edit history (1)

Bernie asked Elizabeth Warren to be his running mate if he wins & she agreed in advance? A know it's a hypothetical, but I think she is as disgusted as Bernie about the corrupt system of money that is destroying out democracy and she's amazingly intelligent and insightful women who would made a great president.

about the medical device tax that helped fund ACA. Plus, she's withheld endorsing anyone while she sees how it will shake out. She's an opportunist, like all politicians.

2. He could overtake Hillary without Warren.

It's possible. Not easy by any means and certainly not the most likely scenario. But possible.
Water would help immensely, her endorsement would have the greatest impact before Super Tuesday, but after would be welcomed too.

I am not sure she would want to be veep or that she would be the best choice, though.

He will have to win the fight first, and then find
a younger VP candidate, and best not from the
North Eastern states.
