As Warren Endorses Clinton, Awkward Questions Remain

BOSTON -- As Sen. Elizabeth Warren prepares to endorse Hillary Clinton tonight, some awkward questions remain - including whether Warren will repudiate her previous attacks on Clinton, and whether today's endorsement undermines the Senator's carefully crafted populist image.

"Elizabeth Warren's endorsement of Hillary Clinton presents some awkward questions for the Senator- including whether she intends to repudiate her previous blistering attacks on Clinton. Warren's authenticity as a populist crusader is deeply undermined when she endorses a candidate whom she once insinuated was bought off Wall St. bankers- a group Warren has criticized much to her political benefit."  -MassGOP spokesman Terry MacCormack
Warren implied that Hillary Clinton was bought off by Wall St. bankers in a 2004 interview.Transcript below:

MOYERS: “And then, and then?”
WARREN: “One of the first bills that came up after she was Senator Clinton, was the bankruptcy bill. This is a bill that’s like a vampire, it will not die right, there’s a lot of money behind it –”
MOYERS: “Bill her husband had vetoed.”
WARREN: “Her husband had vetoed it very much at her urging.”
MOYERS: “And?”
WARREN: “She voted in favor of it.”
MOYERS: “Why?”
WARREN: “As Senator Clinton, the pressures are very different. It’s a well-financed industry. You know a lot of people don’t realize that the industry that gave the most money to Washington over the past few years was not the oil industry, was not pharmaceuticals, it was consumer credit products. Those are the people, the credit card companies have been giving money and they have influence.”
MOYERS: “And Mrs. Clinton was one of them as senator.”
“She has taken money from the groups and more to the point, she worries about them as a constituency.”
