Hillary Clinton has a knack for turning triumph into tedium. On the night of Super Tuesday, after her wins all but guaranteed her the Democratic presidential nomination, she served up a victory speech that was a bowl of mush. "We know we've got work to do, but that work is not to make America great again," she said. "America never stopped being great. We have to make America whole. We have to fill in what's been hollowed out. We have to make strong the broken places, restitch the bonds of trust and respect.

WHEN ELIZABETH Warren and Hillary Clinton campaigned together in Cincinnati this week, they raised clasped hands looking very much like a two-gal ticket. Lots of newsies went gaga. NBC's Luke Russert tweeted that if you believe you win with your base turning out, "there really is no other option . . . than Warren as VP. " The Boston Globe's Amanda Katz tweeted, "Want to watch a female Baby Boomer get visibly excited to canvas? Say these words: 'Clinton-Warren 2016.' " And Peter Hamby, formerly of CNN and now head of Snapchat's news section, offered, "I'll say it again: picking anyone other than Warren for VP makes no sense.

Big-name Republicans aren't exactly jostling each other for the chance to be Donald Trump's apprentice. Democrats are watching as Hillary Clinton goes on the road Monday in pivotal Ohio with Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.), the progressive icon. It sure seems like a tryout. After a bruising primary fight with Bernie Sanders, Clinton does need help with her party's disappointed left and young voters, analysts point out. And Trump, after two bumpy months as presumptive GOP nominee in which he has wallowed in gaffes and failed to raise much money, could use political and policy heft in a running mate - somebody soothing to anxious party leaders and donors.

Until Senate majority leader Harry Reid tapped her in November to help oversee the federal bank bailout, the "financial crisis" that most preoccupied Elizabeth Warren was the shadow looming over millions of American families from growing mountains of personal debt. The plight of America's struggling middle class has long been Warren's great passion. Since the 1980s, the Harvard law professor has studied how medical debts, credit-card traps, and crises such as job loss and divorce have pushed millions of families toward a financial cliff, and often into bankruptcy.

Former Gov. Ed Rendell thinks U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who some Democrats had hoped would run for president, is not even qualified to be Hillary Clinton's pick for vice president. Speaking on Rich Zeoli's show on 1210 WPHT on Wednesday, Rendell said Warren is "not in any way, shape, or form ready to be commander-in-chief. " Rendell later called back to temper his assessment. "I didn't want to leave it hanging out there about Elizabeth Warren," he said, adding that he liked her. "Elizabeth Warren's problem would be the same problem I'd have.

Elizabeth Warren said it better than Barack Obama. And the president's presentation wasn't helped when supporters of Mitt Romney edited his words. Sadly, lost in a squabble over "you didn't build that" was the opportunity for a more serious conversation about social contracts.   Last August, while contemplating a run for the U.S. Senate against Scott Brown, Warren offered a fiery defense of liberal economic theory at an event in Andover, Mass. Two minutes worth of what she said became a YouTube sensation that has now been viewed nearly a million times.

WASHINGTON - President Obama's decision not to pick Elizabeth Warren to head a new consumer-protection agency is pumping up speculation that Warren might challenge Republican Sen. Scott Brown, a top Democratic target in 2012. And some Massachusetts Democrats said that the president's decision came not a moment too soon. Democrats looking to take back the seat long held by Sen. Ted Kennedy said yesterday that the consumer advocate would need to launch her candidacy sooner rather than later to counter Brown's popularity across the state and his big campaign bank account.

WE COULD have told President Obama that backing off from nominating Elizabeth Warren to head the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau would not make it any easier to get the bureau off the ground. In fact, we did tell him, but it was no great feat of prognostication. Congressional Republicans made it clear that, even though they were brutally demonizing Warren - who has built the agency and was the hands-on best choice to lead it - it wasn't about her, really. They want to cripple the bureau.

Ind. hires firm to probe collapse INDIANAPOLIS - Indiana has hired an outside firm to help with its investigation into a fatal stage collapse at the state fair after questions were raised about the state's ability to conduct an objective probe itself. Gov. Mitch Daniels' office announced Thursday that the state had hired Witt Associates, a public-safety and crisis-management firm based in Washington to conduct a "comprehensive, independent analysis of the state fair's preparedness and response" to the collapse Saturday that killed five people and injured four dozen as they waited for a concert by the country act Sugarland.

Sen. Tim Kaine of Virginia accepted the Democratic nomination for vice president Wednesday night, introducing himself to a national audience as a Jesuit-educated former missionary and governor who trusts Hillary Clinton with his Marine son's life. And Kaine also debuted in the traditional running-mate role of attack dog, mocking Republican Donald Trump's signature phrase, "Believe me," as a tipoff to the lies of a detail-free campaign. "He says, 'Believe me.' Well, his creditors, his contractors, his laid-off employees, his ripped-off students did just that," Kaine said.

By Brian Rogers This week, Philadelphia is welcoming a very different Democratic Party from the last time a Clinton was on the ballot for president. Twenty years ago, President Bill Clinton declared "the era of big government is over," just as Philadelphia Mayor Ed Rendell's tax cuts and reform agenda were helping revitalize the City of Brotherly Love. But Democrats gathering in the home of Ben Franklin have shifted sharply left on fundamental issues in recent years. With the meteoric rise of avowed socialist Bernie Sanders and his liberal ally Elizabeth Warren - who both spoke in prime time to open the convention Monday night - this week will show that this is no longer the party of Bill Clinton and Ed Rendell.

WASHINGTON - Six U.S. senators, including Al Franken (D., Minn.) and Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.), wrote to federal regulators Tuesday, urging them to block Comcast Corp.'s proposed purchase of Time Warner Cable. Should the deal win approval, "we believe that Comcast-TWC's unmatched power in the telecommunications industry would lead to higher prices, fewer choices, and poorer quality services for Americans," wrote Franken, Warren, and Sens.

ISSUE | TAX HIKES Council incumbents, stand ground now I am appalled that City Council incumbents running for reelection are not acting on the city budget - especially its proposed 9.34 percent property tax increase - until after the May primary ("Council a no-go on tax boost," April 1). Haven't we given the schools an extra $200 million for the past several years? What are they doing with the money? If they cared about education, they would make use of the stored books and other equipment just going to waste.

OK, LOOK, I can't wait. Believe me, I tried. I know it's only 2015. But I can't help myself. The 2016 race for the White House calls like a mythological Siren. The possibility of another Clinton/Bush clash coupled with an expected rerun of the 2012 GOP carnival of candidates is just too much to leave alone. So let's take an early look at what maybe lies ahead. Public polling - which, at this stage, is based on name ID and reflected chatter from cable TV - suggests Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush will be their party's nominees.
