As a "Good Democrat" I want an experienced, tested, moderate candidate....

BULLSHIT I WANT A CANDIDATE WHO CAN WIN

This is too important. I see Hillary buried in dark money. Campaign ads worse than we've seen before, and we think we've seen it all. What this will do, in my opinion, is what it did last year; discourage voting. It's not enough to fuck with the voting machines and enact voter restrictions. it's important for voters to be disgusted enough to stay home.

And, while Hillary may not be a first choice, ok she's not mine, try to imagine a Republican government in an era of global climate change and extreme weather disruptions the likes of which we've never seen. OK, got that picture in your mind?

Hillary's far ahead in the polls, so what. Do you think that scares the billionaires who plan on buying this election? They couldn't succeed with Obama because his skills at speaking and reaching out to people cut through the noise. I don't think Hillary can do that with the same success as Obama and, I'm sorry to say, neither can Bernie Sanders. In America, it's not the qualifications that matter, it's the star power. In Senator Warren we have both, and we need her badly.

In my very humble opinion, on this day, March 12, 2015, with no links provided, I think Elizabeth Warren is the best hope for the Democratic party to keep the White House in 2016, and she just might have the strength to carry the House and Senate. We need a winner in 2016. People listen to her, people believe her, people like her, and people won't like the dark money ads against her.

Being the eternal optimist, I think something will happen to get Warren into the race. It really has to. Losing the White House in 2016 cannot be an option.

1. Putting all the Democrats eggs in one basket...

is courting disaster!

It's beyond comprehension how centrist Democrats
are willing bet the future of the party on a single candidate.

If "The One" loses, WE ALL LOSE

I'm sure Elizabeth sees this as well.
Given her hard fought gains and passion
for us, the average American, she will
do whatever is in her powers for us.

She has our backs

Democrats are courting disaster and look very weak with only one presidential candidate.

Democrats See No Choice but Hillary Clinton in 2016
