And Duncan would have reason to know. He was the chief executive officer of the Chicago Public Schools (CPS) from 2001 until 2008. Who in…

"I doubt a Biden-Warren ticket will happen, but it remains the only threat to Clinton outside of some Justice Department prosecutor showing the same zeal in going after Hillary Clinton as the administration did in going after David Petraeus.
