Warren 2020!

Come on. Tell me why I should not support the campaign of the daughter of a janitor who rose to become a US Senator. Tell me why a candidate who believes In equality and unions is “out of step” with the mainstream Democratic Party. Tell me why it is so important that billions of dollars be collected and spent in a giant Food Fight aka the Democratic Primary in which paid Russian trolls in smoke filled rooms will try to tell us that 1) white women are the sole reason Blacks can’t get a break and 2) Black men are the sole reason women can not get a break and 3) your daughter can not afford college because granny is living it up eating cat food thanks to her big fat Social Security check.

Do you want to be Divided and Conquered again? Not me. That is why I am supporting THE Solidaarity candidate. The one who reminds us all of that special teacher, the one who refused to leave any child behind. The one who made home visits. The one who had our backs and gently but firmly nudged us forward so that we could be all we were meant to be.

If the worst dirt they can throw at her is that she is not a molecular biologist ( i.e. DNA) then they have nothing. And if we work together we have a chance to regain the world.

In 2008, another candidate just said No to Super-PAC money. How did that work out? It can work again.

1. I am a Warren fan. I think she would work hard and do a

really good job.

8. She'll destroy him. She's my candidate

Any Dem will destroy the GOP candidate.

Hillary won the popular vote and lost the EC by a HAIR — and she was the target of a vast rightwing attack machine for three decades, which made her unlikeable.

Any Dem will Winn in 2020. Let’s pick someone who can actually undermine the structural advantages the GOP has due to dark money and billionaires and propaganda.

The best candidate for America is Liz Warren.

10. 3 decades of vicious attacks, Comey, Russia, lousy media...

There were many factors at play in 2016's crazy result, and some of those factors won't be factors in 2020.

I don't think Warren will be our nominee, but I do think we'll be looking at a 2008-esque landslide. Or better.

30. Yes. I would like to see her debate Trump

She is not rattled by his antics, has command of the facts and economics, and seems pretty quick on her feet. I suspect she could hammer his blasts over the economy with her sound reading of history and how he has benefitted from the current economic environment.

I thought her speech was a superb combination of rhetorical skill and clear, concise analysis with specific (as much possible given the occasion) solutions.

3. That was a great speech she gave. I don't know who I'll end up voting for in the primary,

but she would be one of the candidates who would be easy to vote for in the general.

4. She's an actual Democrat... so that's definitely a plus!

Considering all the other talented Democrats we have, I think it will be a challenge for her to win the nomination. All those other things you mentioned are also plusses, but is it enough?

Time will tell, I suppose.

7. I think the Native American ancestry story dooms her. But she could still win New Hampshire.

If nothing else, she closes the door on Sanders. Not that the door was ever really open to his candidacy.

9. Unfortunately, I agree

I love Warren, but I too am worried about the Native American story. I thought she might be able to get past it until I heard she listed her ethnicity as Native American on her Bar application. That will be hard to overcome.

13. Warren care for everyone.

I believe that she considered herself part of the Cherokee Nation. But whatever Indian lineage she considered herself part of should simply make her an honorary member of that tribe. Then DNA will no longer matter.

16. I personally think

 

she just needs to stop addressing the issue. Articles I've read about Native American tribal leaders indicate that this issue is not really on their radar. It's the corporate media that keeps trying to make this an issue--and of course Fox "News". She's one our great candidates--this is becoming a political hit job because they fear her policies.

Both Warren and Klobuchar are in trouble, fair or not.

22. The media only works

when the candidate lets them. Warren's a fighter, which she showed today in her speech. She came out swinging and that's what we need.Dont mean to rain on your parade, but I think she's going to hold her on up against many.

Anyway, candidates don't "let" media have an impact. Media has an impact, period.

6. Warren would be great in the general

Strong in the upper midwest, appeals to working class, POC and women. Most importantly she has shown for years now that she is a warrior in the fight against economic inequality. I love her.

12. She's a fine senator, and would be an excellent cabinet member.

The way she handled Trump's baiting and touted the results leads me to believe she's not the best choice for president.

I loved Kamala's speech too. Cant wait to hear Klobuchar's speech as well as Sherrod Brown's version and Julian Castro's as well. I'm also hoping Biden runs, he's got so much heart and is a warrior and anti-war. So looking forward to the primaries and debates!! Going to need a ton of watching and

and she is absolutely on my list. Republicans and squawking jays of questionable judgement and motives don't tell me who's good.

27. Has great ideas but makes poor decisions

Ancestry thing was a complete debacle. People had almost forgot about then she goes and makes it worse than it ever was. She did a commercial with her husband + "I Like Beer" that was so phony I thought I was going to barf. Unless she gets a public relations guru immediately it ain't happening

28. She is fabulous but will have a tough time getting elected

I agree with everything she says but you can't be anti-Wall Street and anti-banks and get elected. Even a lot of middle income Democrats have their pensions and retirement tied up on Wall Street and they won't like what she has to say.

33. I would be happy with Warren + Harris

Or Harris + Warren.
Or Warren + Castro, if that would make the HannityLimbaughCoultergeist explode while screaming about socialism.
Or Warren + Klobuchar.

NOT Warren + Sanders. I prefer a Democratic ticket.
