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.

Crossfire: Gingrich slams ‘Republican consultant class’

(CNN) - Crossfire co-host Newt Gingrich took aim at Republican elites, opening Tuesday's show by criticizing Karl Rove for his recent comments questioning Hillary Clinton's health.

"I think he represented the worst instincts of the consulting class in the Republican Party," Gingrich said.
