5. Wonderful, but please no Warren as VEEP.

We, and Hillary, will desparately need her in the US Senate, not as a relatively powerless VEEP who only gets to vote upon a tie.

Only a mad person would see this any other way.

No sitting Democratic US Senator should agree to be VEEP.

We have a great opportunity this year with the Senate. The problem is, in the next cycle we have an equal problem to the GOP this year. We're likely screwed! Unless we can sweep as many Democrats into office as we can.

That means don't take good Democratic Senators out of office for effectively ceremonial positions! And certainly not Elizabeth Warren (whose Senate star has arisen) or -- god love him -- Al Franken (whose star is rising).

We need these people in the US Senate. And do not forget this! Although MA and MN are both very liberal states, both of these Senators' predecessors were Republicans. For Christ sakes, the current governor of MA is also GOP!

I cannot and will not support a sitting Democratic US Senator for VEEP. Hillary is just going to have to fish for a running mate someplace else.
