BOSTON (AP) – As Hillary Clinton weighs possible running mates, Elizabeth Warren offers a historic choice.
The prospect of two women running as a ticket would be a first for a major party.
Warren has all the fire any Democratic presidential candidate would want in a potential vice president. She’s a gleeful Donald Trump taunter and an enthusiastic ambassador to the party’s liberal base.
There are concerns, too.
Backers of the 67-year-old Warren worry that as a vice presidential candidate she’d have to tamp down some of her more fiery edges, particularly when going after Wall Street and big banks.
And Trump has already targeted Warren’s claims of Native American ancestry, calling her “Pocahontas” and “the Indian.”
Warren has been asked to deliver a speech on the first night of the Democratic convention.
