Biden plans to go after Warren
Speaking as a Bernie fan, this is good news.
Liz Warren has not been battle tested yet. Not by the media, not by other candidates.
I'm not convinced that she's a good debater yet.
Joe Biden is expected to use this week's debate to argue Democrats should select a nominee who is able to offer "more than plans," an adviser to the former vice president says, previewing a potential line of attack against Sen. Elizabeth Warren, whose campaign mantra is "I've got a plan for that."
If Warren parries Biden's attacks then Biden will look weak and hasten his decline.
If Biden embarrasses Warren then the IdPol crowd will turn on Biden and call him sexist. Advantage Bernie.
Either way, Biden's attack will be interesting.
While Warren has posted tax returns dating back to 2008 on her campaign website, the Biden camp appears to be calling for greater scrutiny of the years before 2008, the year she was appointed to the Congressional Oversight Panel that examined the government response to the financial crisis.
Warren, whose presidential effort is styled around fighting corporate America, has taken on corporate clients as an adviser or expert witness on bankruptcy in the last 20 years. In May, her campaign posted brief descriptions of her roles in those cases and some of that work has been questioned during her two Senate campaigns in Massachusetts.
