The Democrats are trying to pack in all the headline-grabbers they can at their national convention. Elizabeth Warren has been tapped to do the big lead-in for Bill Clinton on the penultimate night at the convention, essentially presenting a “one-two punch” for the Dems, reports the Boston Globe.
Observers believe she may have been skipped over for that because the Obama campaign wants to dodge further GOP attacks for the “you didn’t build that” message that might be stirred up by Warren in a keynote. The Obama campaign has denied that Warren’s “opening act” assignment is a penalty, but Senate incumbent Scott Brown insists the president is trying to put some space between him and Warren because her “radical anti-free-enterprise rhetoric” is “so far out of the mainstream.”
