Clinton: Warren a qualified VP choice; pair met Friday morning

Rising up in her might after defeating Vermont’s Bernie Sanders in the June 7 California primary, Hillary Clinton has turned her attention to unifying a splintered Democratic Party and vetting potential vice-presidential¬†candidates.

Elizabeth¬†Warren met Clinton Friday morning at the presumptive Democratic nominee’s home in Washington, D.C., but departed without revealing specifics of their meeting.

Declaring her qualifications and fitness to govern as impeccable, the former Secretary said of Warren:

“I think she is an incredible public servant, eminently qualified for any role. I look forward to working with her on behalf of not only the campaign and her very effective critique of Trump, but also on the issues that she and I both care about.”

The Massachusetts firebrand senator endorsed Mrs. Clinton Thursday evening.

While Senator Warren likely cherished the compliments and adoration from Clinton, sources close to the progressive champion have revealed Warren has reservations concerning an all-female presidential ticket.

Aides close to Warren say she has indicated interest in becoming Clinton’s running mate, but has expressed unease with the thought accepting a role as vice president or a cabinet post which could marginalize her progressive ideas.
