Good news from the Bay State, as PPP’s latest poll shows Elizabeth Warren up two points over Scott Brown.
Bad news from Ron Suskind, who strongly suggests that Tim Geithner and White House officials undermined her, and didn’t like interference from women anyway.
Well, there’s an obvious way to remedy any problems, and not-coincidentally move a sharp, excellent message for the 2012 campaign: make Elizabeth Warren the Democratic Convention keynote speaker. She’s excellent on television and incredibly articulate.
The keynoter does not have to be announced until shortly before the convention, and the Massachusetts Democratic primary is on March 6th. She’s obviously the strong favorite in the primary, and of course highly competitive for the general election. Her message of protecting and strengthening the middle class is clearly where the Party wants to be. Hopefully, that’s where the President wants to be, too.
What’s that you say? Is a Senate candidate without national elected office really capable of delivering a convention keynote? It worked out pretty well the last time.
