Clinton Pens Elizabeth Warren’s TIME ‘100 Most Influential’ Entry
TIME Magazine published its “100 Most Influential People” list Thursday morning. As is the tradition they recruited key and sometimes counterintuitive figures to write short blurbs on each selection. (See Antonin Scalia on Ruth Bader Ginsburg.)
For Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), TIME conscripted…Hillary Clinton, whom many feel would benefit from a primary challenge from a certain senator named Elizabeth Warren. (Warren swears and swears and swears she’s not running.)
In the absence of that challenge others have accused Clinton of lifting Warren’s message of economic populism, which Clinton praised in her essay on the senator. Hit it:
Elizabeth Warren never lets us forget that the work of taming Wall Street’s irresponsible risk taking and reforming our financial system is far from finished. And she never hesitates to hold powerful people’s feet to the fire: bankers, lobbyists, senior government officials and, yes, even presidential aspirants.
Clinton had her own entry; both were classed under “leaders,” while Ginsburg was an “icon.” Neither was classed as a “titan.” Now let’s all delete our accounts together.
