Clinton Caught In The Middle Of Obama-Warren Trade Feud

Two of the nation’s top Democrats, President Obama and Senator Elizabeth Warren, are calling each other liars in the press over granting the president fast-track authority for trade deals.

Warren said the trade negotiations “could undermine the Dodd-Frank financial reform law.” Obama shot back that Warren is “absolutely wrong.”

And caught in the middle is Hillary Clinton, who wants to appeal to both constituencies for her 2016 presidential campaign.

Clinton praised the trade deal as Secretary of State, but has backed away from that full-throated support as part of her “be all things to all people” election calculus.

As the deal is debated in Congress and Warren and Obama continue to hurl insults at one another, Clinton will eventually have to take a stand on this issue that is tearing Democrats apart.
