For now: Obama endorses Clinton, Sanders stays in race”

As for speculation about whether she's been talking to the Clinton campaign about maybe joining the ticket as running mate, Warren said she wasn't in talks with the Clinton camp.

Obama's official endorsement was widely tipped but marks a massive milestone in the race to be US president. "I've seen her commitment to our values".

Clinton told Reuters she and Warren had similar views about issues such as economic policy and protecting the 2010 Dodd-Frank financial reform law and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, which Warren pushed to start.

Obama greeted Sanders and his wife, Jane, in the residence and then strolled with the senator, smiling and laughing warmly, past the Rose Garden to the Oval Office, as cameras recorded the moment.

He said he expects Sanders to stand down Tuesday after the last primary in Washington, D.C.

"I have seen her judgement", Obama said in an email and a web video circulated by the Clinton campaign. "I have seen her judgment".

The Hillary Action Fund will be a new joint fundraising effort between the Clinton campaign, the Democratic National Committee and its headquarters fund, Schwerin added.

Obama's endorsement was an important step toward ending what had been a divisive Democratic primary season, said Patrick Murray, director of the Monmouth University Polling Institute in New Jersey.

"I'm not going to get into the details of their interactions, but I assure you that Senator Sanders was not surprised", Earnest said in response to a question.

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest made it clear during today's press briefing that First Lady Michelle Obama also supports Clinton. And I saw Bernie was walking with Obama in the Rose Garden.

If he's pushed too hard too fast, they risk the wrath of Sanders and his backers.

I think it would be nationally embarrassing to elect somebody who is then indicted...

"I think having a fighter in the lead, a female fighter in the lead, is exactly what this country needs", Warren said on MSNBC's "The Rachel Maddow Show".

Obama called both candidates on Tuesday.

President Obama and Secretary Clinton are scheduled to jointly appear next week at an event in Green Bay, Wisconsin. He focused steadfastly on Trump. She is seen by many as uniquely in touch with progressive voters who supported Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders in the Democratic primary.

"Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell want Donald Trump to appoint the next generation of judges". He's good enough, he's smart enough and, doggone it, people like him. Trump's slogan, "Make America great again", is "code for let's take America backward", she charged. "They just want Donald to quit being so vulgar and obvious about it", Warren says. Obama has said he's "fired up" and ready to get started. "I'm not pushing him to do anything". His meeting with Obama, which lasted an hour, took place at the White House.

"It's hard. It's very hard", she said.

Nor did she make any demand that Sanders drop out of the race, not even a gentle hint.
