Sen. Warren Calls For 'Vigorous Debate' In Democratic Primary

Warren argued that Clinton had not yet made her economic policies clear for voters.

Just as an aside: Am I the only one who remembers progressives attacking Hillary Clinton for staying in the primaries and "eroding" Obama's chances to win the general election? I guess some primaries need to be more "vigorous" than others:

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) on Thursday said Democrats should not rush to coronate former first lady Hillary Clinton as their 2016 presidential candidate.

“I think there needs to be a vigorous debate in the whole question of running for president,” Warren said on “CBS This Morning.”
“I think everyone who is running for president should be talking about what they plan to do to strengthen and rebuild America’s middle class,” she added.

Warren argued that Clinton had not yet made her economic policies clear for voters.

“Charlie, I’ll tell you where I stand on all the key issues,” Warren told host Charlie Rose.

“It’s up to others to say whether they stand there as well, or if they stand in some different place,” she continued, citing her positions on minimum wage, equal pay and trade as examples.

“I’d like to see her address all of these issues,” Warren said of Clinton. “You know, we have a big debate going on right now with trade within the Democratic Party.”
