ROBB AUSTIN'S TURN


It's Warren for Clinton and Gingrich for Trump

June 26, 2016

I look for Elizabeth Warren to be Clinton's Veep pick.

It's actually reminiscent of Bill Clinton's pick of Al Gore in 1992. They were the same age, two white males, campaigning like they were having fun, from neighboring states, exuding youthful energy for Democrats, and the pair made an in-your-face "generational" statement in contrast to the aging George H.W. Bush.

The all-woman Clinton/Warren team, upbeat and having fun, brings the same contrast and enthusiastic in-your-face dynamic for Democrats in 2016. And Warren brings out a girl-power 'Thelma and Louise' quality that Clinton needs.

My Veep prediction for Trump remains Newt Gingrich.
