Lawrence Kudlow: De Blasio, Warren Will Push Hillary to the Left

Monday, 17 Nov 2014 05:39 PM

Hillary Clinton's agenda will move into ultra-liberal territory as she mulls the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination — with New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren pushing her to the far left, CNBC senior contributor Lawrence Kudlow says.

"De Blasio is a very ambitious guy and as mayor of New York he certainly has an important platform," Kudlow said Monday on "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"He and Elizabeth Warren are the two leaders of what I call the Sandinista wing of the Democratic Party.

"The Sandinista wing is growing and if de Blasio runs for president, he will have a tremendous influence which could turn the entire Democratic Party over to the Sandinista wing."

Kudlow said the Democratic Party has made a dramatic move to the left in recent years.

"With respect to Hillary Clinton and her ambitions, this is not Bill Clinton's Democratic Party," he said.

"This is a party that has moved so far to the left the only way that Hillary can probably capture the nomination is for she herself to become part of the Sandinista wing and the Democrats are going to become extinct if they go down this road."

"Her liberal views on foreign policy will shift to the left.... de Blasio is going to force her hand."

Kudlow, who is also host of syndicated radio program "The Larry Kudlow Show," said a veto of the Keystone XL Pipeline by the president would be "a big mistake for him."

"We do need additional pipeline capacity because trucks and railroads are too dangerous. It would be a symbol of America's commitment to maximize our oil and natural gas production.

"If Obama vetoes it, it'll be overturned and if he's overturned on the veto, that's going to really hurt his power and clout, really hurt him."
