Two former presidential candidates spar over Clinton v. Warren

(CNN) – In the hypothetical battle of Elizabeth Warren vs. Hillary Clinton in 2016, one former Clinton opponent is putting his money on the former secretary of the state, but not without caveats.

On Wednesday’s “Crossfire,” 52% of viewers who responded to the show’s fireback question said they believe Warren could beat Clinton in a Democratic primary. Former New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson, who ran against Clinton (and Obama) in 2008 in the Democratic presidential primary, disagreed.

Elizabeth Warren bashes Wall Street in West Virginia

Shepherdstown, West Virginia (CNN) – Elizabeth Warren doesn’t roll deep.

The Massachusetts senator and reigning champion of progressives everywhere arrived right on time Monday afternoon for a campaign event in West Virginia, this one for Democratic Senate hopeful Natalie Tennant, Warren’s latest stop in a national political tour boosting 2014 candidates. Her slight frame slid gingerly out of the passenger side of a blue SUV – her own car, with Bay State plates – and she greeted a volunteer with a golly-gee smile.

But never one to pass up an opportunity to network with political leaders in a key presidential primary state, the vice president also reached out to the state Democratic Party ahead of his visit to help them raise money.
