Warren v. Hillary at Netroots Nation 2014

I know that the drama doesn’t really come across in this photo, but the tension was palpable when the Warren for President folks, handing out posters and hats, set up shop right next to the Hillary for President folks, who were busily building a pyramid of blue “Hillary 2016” coffee mugs, at Netroots Nation 2014.

You can’t see it here, but almost everyone blew right by the Hillary folks to get their hands on the Warren signs. This photo was taken in the aftermath of the first wave. The woman in the pink, one of the Hillary folks, was muttering under her breath and rolling her eyes. I’m not sure what she was expecting, given that we were all going in to meet Elizabeth Warren, but I still felt kind of bad for them. I wonder if, when team Hillary signed up to sponsor the event, they knew that Warren would be delivering the keynote.

    The carpet at COBO, by the way, which can be seen in this photo, has been perfectly calibrated to give me panic attacks.

    How are the Clintons keeping Warren out of the race? Have there been stories? Have they promised her anything?

    Ooh if you don’t like the carpet how does the ceiling in the grand ballroom treat you?

    The ceiling is fine. The carpet just done a phenomenal job of mimicking what I see when I get migraines. Otherwise, things are going well, though.

    From the story about Netroots Nation on the front page of Politico:

    DETROIT — Their heads might be with Hillary Clinton, but their hearts are decidedly with Elizabeth Warren.

    Scuttlebutt is Hillary handed Warren an envelope one day earlier this year. In it was a single item. A photo of Vince Foster. The next day Warren said she would not be running for President.
