Warren pivots on 'Medicare for All' in bid to become Biden's VP

In the thick of primary season, Elizabeth Warren and Joe Biden brawled over "Medicare for All”: He called her approach “angry,” “elitist,” “condescending”; she shot back, anyone who defends the health care status quo with industry talking points is “running in the wrong presidential primary.”

Six months later, with Biden the presumptive Democratic nominee and Warren in the running for VP, she is striking a more harmonious chord.

"I think right now people want to see improvements in our health care system, and that means strengthening the Affordable Care Act," she told students at the University of Chicago’s Institute of Politics this week, while adding that she still wants to get to single payer eventually.

The shift is the latest public signal Warren has sent Biden's way in recent weeks that she wants the job of vice president — and wants Biden to see her as a loyal governing partner despite their past clashes, which go back decades.

Not happening. Dementia Joe is only a placeholder. Whoever is VP is guaranteed to be 47 if Joe can pull it off, and establishment Democrats want no part of anyone from the progressive wing in the Oval Office.

Dementia Joe isn't picking anything. DNC will tell him who to pick. At very least, they'll give him a few choices or they'll have veto power over any pick. DNC knows that the VP will be 47 in short order and they're not going to let Joe screw it up for them. So it isn't going to be Warren.

Doomberg and his super-PAC millions will never allow this fake squaw to be the VP...

She thought she was getting the nod the other day. The look on her face when she realized she wasn't, was priceless. So no, it's not going to be her. The DNC will decide who get to be VP and she's too dumb for even them.

When I included “svelte and stunning”, I assumed readers would recognize satire...
