Jay Leno has his own opinions on the potential, hoped-for fight between Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Hillary Clinton (D-Who Knows Anymore) for the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee.
While he said he liked Clinton, Leno had one worry: “I just don’t see the fire,” he said during an appearance on Real Time with Bill Maher last night.
“Her and Elizabeth Warren are almost the same age. And I see Elizabeth Warren coming out — boom, throwing punches! — and I like her,” Leno said to cheers. But Hillary? “She seems slow, she seems deliberate. But I don’t see that fire, the fire I used to see [from her] — the fire I see in Elizabeth Warren.”
Observing that everyone thinks Warren is probably 15-ish years younger than Clinton — “No, 18 months!” Leno noted — Leno, along with the rest of the panel, thought that Warren should run — if at least to give a voice to the “populist left” sentiment growing in the party, as Paul Begala put it.
