Warren: I’m Ready to be President!

Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) has looked into the future and does not see Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) as a viable candidate for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination in 2020

The woman who created the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) has confidently insisted that she can step into the role of president.

In an interview with MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) was queried on the growing political speculation that she is being considered as Hillary Clinton’s running mate. Warren stated that she and Clinton had not discussed that, but Maddow took the possibility of this pairing one step further.

“If you were asked to be Secretary Clinton's running mate, do you believe you could do it?” Maddow asked. “And by that I mean the most important job of being a vice president is to be ready to be president if, God forbid, something happened to the Commander in Chief. I know you don't want the job, but do you believe you would be capable of stepping into that job and doing that job if you were ever called to do it?"

With no pause for hesitation, Warren blurted out, “Yes, I do.”

Warren did not formally endorse Clinton’s presidential bid until after the former Secretary of State secured enough delegates to be considered the presumptive nominee for the Democratic Party. The Massachusetts senator was conspicuous as the only female Democratic senator not to endorse Clinton during the primaries, and she also clouded the picture by speaking positively of Sen. Bernie Sanders’ presidential bid. 

The buzz around a Clinton-Warren ticket would appear to sink earlier pundit predictions that Clinton would tap U.S. Housing & Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Julian Castro as her running mate. Unlike Warren, Castro endorsed and actively campaigned for Clinton during the primaries.
