KRISTEN WELKER, MSNBC: Let me start with the news of the day: this joint appearance with Senator Warren and Secretary Clinton. A lot of eyes on this event, a sense this was a tryout. Was it, and did Senator Warren pass? Did this move her up the shortlist on potential VP picks?
ED RENDELL: It certainly drove home the point that Elizabeth Warren can excite crowds. Thereâ€™s no question about it, and excite progressives. Some of the Sanders camp, I heard during the campaign, were a little annoyed at Senator Warren because she didnâ€™t endorse Bernie Sanders. But still, she didnâ€™t endorse Hillary Clinton either. She stayed neutral, which I think was the proper stance for her to take under those circumstances, so she does have that as a significant plus. The drawbacks, obviously, are two women on the ticket. Does it make a difference? I donâ€™t think so, but some people might. Does Elizabeth Warren have the experience to be commander in chief? I think Tim Kaine, Iâ€™m not sure he was taking a dig at Elizabeth Warren. O think Tim Kaine was answering that question honestly. Otâ€™s very difficult, unless youâ€™ve been in the military or you were secretary of state and are privy to military decisions, itâ€™s very hard to say â€˜yes, I have had the experience that qualifies me for commander in chief.â€™ So, look, O think Elizabeth Warren is on a very short list and I think today did nothing to hurt her chances.
