This means Warren: Obama backs challenger to Hillary

President Obama has quietly promised Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren complete support if she runs for president — a stinging rebuke to his nemesis Hillary Clinton, sources tell me.

Publicly, Obama has remained noncommittal on the 2016 race, but privately he worries that Clinton would undo and undermine many of his policies. There’s also a personal animosity, especially with Bill Clinton, that dates from their tough race six years ago.

A former Harvard law professor and administration aide, Warren would energize the left wing of the Democrat Party just as Obama did against Clinton in 2008.

Thanks to her outspoken stand against big banks and the top 1 percent, Warren is the darling of progressives. She won her Senate seat thanks to millions of dollars in donations from outside Massachusetts, including from rich environmentalists and Hollywood celebrities.

Obama has authorized his chief political adviser, Valerie Jarrett, to conduct a full-court press to convince Warren to throw her hat into the ring.

    Nice. Assuming Warren is stupid enough to accept at some point, her fate will have been sealed.

    Birds of a feather, and all that…

    She has high cheekbones which will come in handy as she fights hard for the middle class from her limousine and private jet at the $25,000 a plate fundraiser.

    Now we will have TWO lying Leftist female hypocrites fighting it out for the Democrat Presidential nomination.

    One bright note; Perhaps they will publically destroy each other, and assure victory for a Republican (preferably not a RINO).

    Obama has promised Bill he would support Hillary if he would support him. I guess there is no honor among thieves.
