Bill Kristol: Seems Crazy But Hillary May Talk Herself Into Picking Warren as VP

By    |   Monday, 27 Jun 2016 05:45 PM

Hillary Clinton, who's using Elizabeth Warren as her own personal attack dog against Donald Trump, may end up picking the Massachusetts senator as her vice presidential running mate — but that would be "a little crazy," Bill Kristol, editor of The Weekly Standard, tells Newsmax TV.

"I've been discounting [the possibility] but … [I spoke with] someone who's pretty close to the Clinton campaign and she thought it was possible," Kristol said Monday on "The Steve Malzberg Show."

"It seems a little crazy to go left in your VP pick if you're trying to get centrist voters presumably who are uncomfortable with Trump, but are worried about [Bernie] Sanders supporters … not going to vote [or who] might go to [Libertarian Party candidate] Gary Johnson or Joel Stein, the Green Party candidate."

This week, Warren has joined the Clinton campaign in Ohio and has been gleefully tearing into Trump as a "thin-skinned racist bully" who is woefully inadequate to be the nation's commander-in-chief.

I didn't' see [it] today, but I guess the reports are that Elizabeth Warren really energized the crowd. [The Clinton campaign] might talk themselves into an Elizabeth Warren pick. I personally am doubtful about that, but I don't think it's out of the question," Kristol said.

Picking the outspoken, booming-voiced Warren could make Clinton look bad, Kristol said he believes.

"I think people have never really gone wrong taking vice presidents who were dull or who don't perform well. It worked with Dan Quayle. I liked him very much and I think he got bad advice and was handled badly and didn't do very well," Kristol said of the George H.W. Bush's vice president who was portrayed in the media as an ignorant buffoon.

"I'm dubious how much the VP can add, but one thing a VP can do is sort of make the number-one person look a little pale by comparison and I think Warren could do that."
