Elizabeth Warren Launches 2020 Presidential Campaign
there is no frontrunner. If you think you know right now who our nominee will be, you are probably wrong. She has a good chance; many do. But one thing-this keeps Bernie out almost certainly. That wing of the party is now split with her running, and in my opinion, not re-doing 2016 would be ideal. So I do not want Bernie to run. That time has passed. Best guess? None. Except for this:
Watch Steve Bullock.
tap the female talent in this country to be our president. It's way past time to get a woman in the Oval Office, leading.
I really like our junior senator, Chris Murphy, but alas, another white male. He's wonderful and I think he would make a find vice president.
By the time Trump is done this country will be needing everyone's talent to save us.
we knew who was taking the lion's share of the left-wing vote. I love Warren. I like Sander's rhetoric slightly more, and I think he's more unwavering when it comes to money in politics, and slightly less conciliatory, which means he doesn't have to shut up about it because he's trying to work with those who are still taking that kind of money. On the other hand I think Warren is more wonkish and can more personally dig down into the nitty gritty details of things.
But then Sanders is more popular with that voting contingent than Warren, but then Warren has the advantage of not having a whole swath of Clinton supporters bitter with her. That said, I don't know how many of those Clinton supporters she's going to pull in the primary over Biden or a possible O'Rourke bid anyway, and there are those on the left who take umbrage with her because she didn't endorse Sanders...although that was just smart politics, and she was the only Senator I know of who held out as long as she did as undecided, under tons of pressure to throw in for Clinton to boot.
But I have no idea why this would derail a Sanders bid, since its likely everybody else on stage is going to be splitting votes with each other as well. Biden and Harris and Booker and Gillibrand and O'Rourke, should they all be up there, are going to be drawing from the same contingents of voters. A few are going to situate themselves between Sanders and Biden...(Gillibrand, Booker, Harris), while Biden and O'Rourke sound like they would both offer up the centrist "lets work together...everybody has good intentions...." tragedy. That might sell to enough democrats though not to those of us on the left. The problem is it just isn't true and Obama's Presidency should put that flowery notion about the other side of the aisle to bed once and for all.
Which is also good.
Its an elusive combination of cadence and charisma. Obama, of course, had it. ORourke has it. Gillum and Abrams have it. Biden does too, to a lesser degree. Ive not seen it in most of the others; I hope Im wrong.
She was a Republican for a number of years. I dont see that hurting her support on our side and might help sway some on the right. She knows their policies are failures.
I think Warrens message will resonate with millions of workers who have been getting screwed by policies that favor the very wealthy. Whether or not she becomes the nominee, she will shape our message this cycle for the better.
neighbor. If she's the nominee I'd happily vote for her. She's wicked smart, kind, generous and does not suffer fools.
I'm glad one of the bigger names has stepped forward. We've been letting the media decide how to frame the Democratic race since the midterms and it hasn't helped us at all.
someone who isn't super interested in listening to native voices about her stunt.
