The (D) Ticket

Monica Crowley has something here.

...Mr. Obama has a more important reason for doing [Clinton] in. As I have written previously, he needs a successor he can control. Over the years, including recently, he has waxed rhapsodic over a possible third term to continue his “fundamental transformation of the nation.” Mrs. Clinton will not provide it; therefore, she must be sidelined. If Mr. Obama does not want an investigation to go forward, it does not go forward. Witness the scandals involving the Internal Revenue Service, Benghazi, Veterans Administration and Operation Fast and Furious gunrunning. . .

The Democratic ticket will be Joe Biden-Elizabeth Warren. That’s what Mr. Obama wants. And what Mr. Obama wants, Mr. Obama gets. This is “Game of Thrones.” And Mr. Obama is winning.   --quoted at SipseyStreet

To my mind, Warren has been the candidate from the get-go.  You'll note that the White House has been pushing Biden, with the very odd 'speculative promise' that Creepy Joe will only serve half-a-term, and then resign.  That makes sense ONLY if Fauxcahontas--another True Believer in the transvaluation of all values--is next in line.
