Clinton and Warren, who has has focused on the issue of income equality, held a private, one-on-one meeting at Clinton’s Washington home, the New York Times reported. The meeting came at Clinton’s invitation.
Warren, a Massachusetts freshman who was appointed to Senate leadership this year, is being lobbied to run for president next year. But she has repeatedly said she is not interested.
“It is positive news that Hillary Clinton is meeting with Elizabeth Warren and other progressives -- and it will be even more positive news if economic populist thinkers are appointed to her inner circle,”said Adam Green, co-founder of the Progressive Change Campaign Committee. “The way for Democrats to win the general election in 2016 is by actively campaigning on an Elizabeth Warren-style economic message -- big ideas like expanding Social Security benefits, a national goal of debt-free college, and stopping Wall Street banks from wrecking our economy again.One must remember this: Elizabeth Warren-style economics is Barack Obama Economics repackaged.
