The idea to placate Bernie Sanders backers by tabbing Harvard snob Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren as the vice presidential pick has run into opposition – from Hillary’s Wall Street donors. The fat cats are revolting over the two vaginas are better than one ticket and this could put a serious crimp in the five month barrage of gender-based mud-slinging that America is about to be subjected to. The donors are now in open revolt over the possibility that Fauxahontas will be Mrs. Clinton’s running mate. It would seem that back before Warren sold her soul to Hillary for a fistful of wampum that she hurt the feelings of the banksters with her constant scolding and they sure haven’t shelled out hundreds of thousands of dollars in speaking fees to the queen in waiting for nothing.

According to Politico “Wall Street donors seek to block Warren VP pick”:

Big Wall Street donors have a message for Hillary Clinton: Keep Elizabeth Warren off the ticket or risk losing millions of dollars in contributions.

In a dozen interviews, major Democratic donors in the financial services industry said they saw little chance that Clinton would pick the liberal firebrand as her vice presidential nominee. These donors despise Warren’s attacks on the financial industry. But they also think her selection would be damaging to the economy. And they warned that if Clinton surprises them and taps Warren, big donations from the industry could vanish.

“If Clinton picked Warren, her whole base on Wall Street would leave her,” said one top Democratic donor who has helped raise millions for Clinton. “They would literally just say, ‘We have no qualms with you moving left, we understand all the things you’ve had to do because of Bernie Sanders, but if you are going there with Warren, we just can’t trust you, you’ve killed it.’”

Most big donors don’t want Warren on the ticket because she is the most accomplished anti-Wall Street populist in the Democratic Party. But many also think her presence would drive a potential Clinton administration too far to the left, poison relations with the private sector from the start and ultimately be damaging to the economy.

It’s not good news for the Dems who will now be faced with cutting Fauxahontas loose even if was only being promoted as a sop to supporters of Bugsy Sanders. Hillary can now move on to one of the token Hispanics on the short list without losing out completely on the identity politics angle that is crucial to her hopes in November. It’s another great example of just who owns Clinton and who she will represent as POTUS after the votes have been counted.
