“No Liz, your arm is too high. It’s better like this” smiled Hillary.  Hillary Clinton has just jumped in to support Warren as a Hillary2 candidate.

Hillary Clinton surprised Warren on the campaign trail this week offering advice and financial support – “My friend Mephisto said you could use some help” smiled the ur lord – “No no, fingers together, keep your shoulders tucked in.” the Clinton urged correcting Warrens awkward movement.

People who know and like both women say there are more similarities between them than some of their partisans would like to admit. Each is a policy powerhouse with an uncommon command of details, and possess the ability to master new material quickly with a deep intellectual curiosity. Like Clinton, Warren focused the early part of her campaign on developing a raft of policy proposals and rolling them out.

More important, an explicit or implicit blessing from Clinton could help Warren if she finds herself battling for delegates and superdelegates at a contested Democratic convention next summer.

“Hillary Clinton would absolutely have influence over a number of delegates to this convention,” said Deb Kozikowski, the vice chair of the Massachusetts Democratic Party.
