Warren and Bernie try to move on as conflict shakes 2020 primary

Politico

But fully exorcising the spat that led to their post-debate confrontation is proving more difficult than simply saying it’s over.

Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren don’t want to talk about it.

“I have no further comment on this,” Warren told reporters Thursday. Sanders didn’t want any part of it either, staying quiet as reporters pelted him with questions, while his campaign circulated a set of new talking points, obtained by POLITICO, that read: “Please refrain from commenting on the CNN story on the meeting between Bernie and Sen. Elizabeth Warren.”

“Goal: Take the high road,” it added.

Warren and Sanders' presidential campaigns are publicly taking steps to move on from the feuding of the past week, after trading accusations of calling the other a “liar” in a tense hot-mic conversation following Tuesday’s debate. But it’s proving more difficult than either would like, thanks to months of quietly escalating tensions that suddenly boiled over this week. Even as Sanders and Warren mostly laid off each other earlier this year, many in Warren's orbit privately seethed over escalating, thinly veiled criticism from Sanders' top aides and surrogates, while some Sanders supporters have viewed Warren with disdain since she declined to join their cause in 2016.

1. Holly Otterbein

 

Is she a relative of yours? It kind of jumped out at me, as it isn't a common name.

...political journalist in the world!

(it's ok to sound a bit Trumpian, when bragging about our children!)

4. The only problem is that there can only be one winner. And neither

 

Sanders or Warren will step aside for the other, which is perfectly understandable. So the idea of a progressive unity ticket is a pipe dream. The onus is on Warren because she's behind right now. She needs to figure out how she can pass Bernie. So they aren't going to kiss and make up.

6. The only thing shaking is tRump's belly as he laughs about this, "feud"

 

Any stupid thing driving a wedge between Dems is a plus for him.

We can't do this.
