It looks like the Democratic party might be grooming an alternative to Hillary Clinton. Harry Reid is tapping her as a liaison to liberal groups for Senate Democrats.
It may sound like a token effort (in the absence of having president Obama, and any of his policies on any more ballots) to keep liberals engaged, but it sure helps Warren's political profile. It's visible and it also gives her a platform in the senate minority to proselytize and to monologue her way to liberal media darling status. She might be the next Obama.
To top it off, Warren seems to be getting in doors that Hillary Clinton is being excluded from getting in.
How does Hillary feel about that? She's probably not feeling a tingle up her leg. But she's likely to revert to her anti-media form. She may feel insulated from the threat.
David Axelrod warned her recently.
David Axelrod, the chief strategist who guided President Obama into the White House, offered a blunt assessment Thursday of Hillary Rodham Clinton's likely 2016 presidential campaign, saying she needs to "get out of the cocoon of inevitability."..."Tactics have to follow strategy," Axelrod said. "I think the danger for Secretary Clinton is that, as was the case in 2007, her candidacy is out in front of the rationale for it."
From there he naturally goes of the rails and suggests she move to the same space as Warren (i.e. the Obama-leftosphere).
Well, good luck with that. But Hillary Clinton shouldn't be taking this lightly. Conservatives however might look upon it as her star fading a bit in Democratic eyes, and the vanishing of her air of inevitability and take heart from it.
