CNN’s S.E. Cupp is not impressed with the Democratic prospects for 2016 if Hillary Clinton decides not to run. On Crossfire Wednesday, the conservative pundit broke down the current field as she see it.
“Joe Biden is a great guy, but he’s like 100 years old,” Cupp said of the vice president.
What about Gov. Martin O’Malley of Maryland? “Don’t think he’s known to be three people outside his home state.”
And Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA)? “Far too extreme, she’s left of left.”
“If Hillary doesn’t announce soon, hasn’t she taken up all the oxygen from these other players, who I think would need a significant amount of time to engender the kind of support that she already has.”
Democratic strategist Hilary Rosen did her best to defend Biden and the other candidates who do not have the last name Clinton. As for Cupp’s assertion about Warren, Rosen said, “It seems odd that we should worry about someone being too left when we’ve got someone like Marco Rubio or Ted Cruz or Rand Paul out there.”
For the record, Biden is currently 71 and would be 73 on Election Day 2016. That’s only four years older than Ronald Reagan was when he was sworn in for the first time.
