Senator Elizabeth Warren praised two Democratic presidential candidates - Sen. Bernie Sanders and Gov. Martin O'Malley - for their stances on Wall Street. "I'm pleased that Sen @BernieSanders and Gov @MartinOMalley are supporting @TammyBaldwin's bill to slow down the Wall Street revolving door," Warren tweeted.
Clinton has been attempting to court Warren's support for months. Clinton has been hyping her anti-Wall Street talk to make clear she'll be tough on big banks. While Hillary Clinton's campaign has received substantial support from Wall Street, Clinton regularly denounces Wall Street at rallies.
In April, Clinton even went so far as to write Elizabeth Warren's entry in Time Magazine's top 100 influential people, praising Warren for her progressive leadership.
Warren's tweet sends a message that she is not impressed with Clinton's talk.
Recently, a group encouraging Warren to run for president threw its support behind Bernie Sanders when chances of Warren running seemed slim to none.
Barack Obama is not popular. This plain and simple fact may surprise those who read only legacy journalists, who often elide this inconvenient truth. A recent Associated Press write-up is illustrative:
Even as the public remains closely divided about his presidency, Barack Obama is holding on to his support from the so-called “Obama coalition” of minorities, liberals and young Americans, an Associated Press-GfK poll shows, creating an incentive for the next Democratic presidential nominee to stick with him and his policies.
Martin O'Malley said the rise of the terrorist organization ISIS in the Middle East can be traced to climate change. In a Friday interview on Bloomberg aired Monday, the Democratic presidential candidate and former Maryland governor said a drought in Syria helped create the conditions for ISIS's growth in the region.
The Bernie Sanders moment does not appear to be passing, at least not yet. The latest Quinnipiac poll of of likely Democratic caucusgoers in Iowa shows the Vermont senator trailing Hillary Clinton by 19 points—a gaping deficit, until you consider that just two months ago, Clinton led Sanders by 45 points in Quinnipiac's Iowa poll.
Vermont senator Bernie Sanders is being attacked in a new ad for not being liberal enough on guns.
"Bernie Sanders is no progressive when it comes to guns," says a voiceover in the 15-second spot, which criticizes the socialist senator's votes against two gun-control bills. The ad also notes the National Rifle Association's support for Sanders. Watch the video below:
Democratic presidential candidate responds to the Charleston shooting with an email saying, "I'm pissed."
"I'm pissed that after an unthinkable tragedy like the one in South Carolina yesterday, instead of jumping to act, we sit back and wait for the appropriate moment to say what we're all thinking: that this is not the America we want to be living in," O'Malley writes.
All the Democratic presidential candidates are "excellent," according to the president of the United States. Barack Obama made the comments this morning in a fundraising push targeting Democratic supporters.
"After two races and some tough fights together, it would be easy for us to get tired or wait for someone else to pick up the mantle and fight for what we believe in," Obama writes in an email to Democrats.
The campaign of Democratic presidential candidate Martin O'Malley is whacking Hillary Clinton today for not taking a firm stand on critical issues in her speech today in New York City.
" Today, Hillary Clinton spoke about her vision for America's future. But here's what she didn't say: she didn't say that she would take any substantive actions to hold Wall Street CEO's accountable for reckless behavior. Nor did she weigh in on the secretive TPP deal that could depress American wages and cost American jobs," team O'Malley writes in an email to supporters.
Democratic presidential candidate Martin O'Malley is rallying the opposition against President Obama's proposed "fast track" trade law. O'Malley, unlike his rival Hillary Clinton, has voiced strong opposition to the plan.
"Today, the U.S. House of Representatives will vote on Fast Track for the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP)," O'Malley writes in an email this morning to supporters.
I took a 7:00 a.m. train this morning from Washington to New York and about an hour into my trip, I made my way to the café car for a cup of coffee. Standing at the little bar/work area was Martin O’Malley. He was just hanging out.
So far as I could tell, O’Malley had only one or two staffers with him. He was having coffee, too, and doing a little light office work. For the first few minutes, he was basically anonymous.
