Elizabeth Warren becomes latest ex-presidential rival to back Joe Biden

In a recent New York Times interview, AOC said the Biden camp would have to do more than throw progressives "a couple of bones" to get them on board, referring to the Biden campaign's recent support for student loan bailouts and lowering the age for Medicare to 60-proposals meant to be an olive branch to leftists. She said Biden would handle the health crisis well, praising him for being "steady" and "prepared", while contrasting his qualities with what she believes are those of President Donald Trump.

The formal backing from Warren, a progressive senator from MA, comes two days after ex-candidate Bernie Sanders announced his backing for Biden.

Warren framed Biden as a politician of grace and grit who has dedicated his life to public service, and has the experience to "rebuild and transform" the nation. "Experts, scientists, military officials who actually know how to run the government and care about doing a good job running the government, and know how to work with our allies, and who will always put the American people's interest about their own", Obama said.

Biden now has the endorsement of all former major Democratic candidates, including Senator Kamala Harris, who has been discussed as a potential vice presidential pick.

"We can't afford to let Donald Trump continue to endanger the lives and livelihoods of every American".

Sen. Elizabeth Warren on Wednesday officially endorsed former vice president Joe Biden for the US presidency. He has said he will soon announce a committee to oversee his vice presidential search.

Ticketmaster Changed Its Refund Policy and People Are Pissed
It's unclear when the ticket retail giant quietly changed the policy to " refunds are available if your event is cancelled ". Ticketmaster admits to changing the language on their website but says that the policy has always been the same.

Mr Trump's campaign quickly slammed the announcement, saying Mr Obama knew Mr Biden was unfit all along and had long advised him against running for president.

But in her video, Warren suggested that Biden was willing to be swayed on some issues.

In her statement, Warren also referenced the pair's sometimes rocky relationship.

If this is what the Biden campaign's plan amounts to, swinging from Obama-era normalcy to Sanders-style leftism, Democrats might well be in for a shock come November.

"Joe Biden was there at the very moment I became a senator", she said. I think one thing that we can do is improve the policies that we have as a party, to tell young people, to tell all sorts of people 'We see you and we have a plan for you, and we're going to create hope for all sorts of communities in the United States'.
