Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren, a liberal darling that many wish would have run for president and hope will be the vice-president on the 2016 Democratic ticket, has had one glaring flaw on her resume: she has previously opposed cannabis legalization.
Warren said the two had what she described as “a good long rambly policy conversation” over salad at the Naval Observatory, his Washington residence.
Warren said she and Biden talked about helping the middle class and “the capture of this country” by the wealthy and powerful.
Warren said that it was Biden who initiated the meeting, and that she has also met with Democratic presidential candidates Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, and Martin O’Malley. Asked whether she would serve out the remainder of her term, Warren replied, “I love my job….”
Warren faces re-election in 2018.
Warren made the comments at an event sponsored by the Boston Globe and Suffolk University.
“He’s been through an terrible lot, and that’s something he will have to decide himself, and it’s going to be with his family and quietly in his own home”, Warren said.
She declined to say on Tuesday whether she anticipated endorsing a candidate during the primary.
At the Asked by the Boston Globe on Wednesday about any talk of a joint ticket, “even jokingly,” Warren paused.
“It was a long conversation,” she finally said.time, she told Boston WBZ-TV’s Jon Keller that it was “too early to talk about that”. “You’re going to get those calories and be ready to go”, Warren said, affirming that she continues to eat at McDonalds, Taco Bell and also eats at Chipotle. She also has fundraising muscle. She collected almost $1.6 million in contributions in the first half of this year, taking her campaign bank account to more than $2.4 million, according to Federal Election Commission filings.
