Warren, before huge NYC crowd, touts herself as an heir to female pioneers

NEW YORK —Sen. Elizabeth Warren hailed the political power of female-led organizing in a speech Monday night that invoked the deadly 1911 Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire to argue that outrage can spark positive change — and to make the case for her own presidential ambitions.

The event, which the campaign said attracted more than 20,000 and was easily among her largest crowds so far, had been heavily promoted by the Warren campaign in the preceding days. It came as the campaign enters a new phase in which voters will be paying closer attention and the field is narrowing, and as Warren is looking for new ways to show off her momentum.

She has started holding large rally-style events in an effort to demonstrate that she enjoys enthusiastic grass-roots support from the party’s base. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), the other liberal stalwart in the race, made massive rallies a feature of his 2016 campaign and has also started hosting bigger events in recent weeks.

1. That line got huge applause

The speech took off from there. Warren in happy warrior mode and the crowd feeding off of her. It was awesome.

3. "In fact, we're not here because of men at all"

 

This male detected some feminist overtones at that point - people in the store starting looking at me after I yelled 'Yes!'

Then my heart started to sink, when I heard Triangle Shirtwaist.

4. Thank you for supporting

her campaign, and the reminder that both men and women are in this fight together.

Is that you adding a flower in memory of others?

5. No - it's a file photo.

 

Me? - HRC supporter from way back. The worst thing about being in the local grocery store these days is knowing that the people who resemble me (60-ish white male) will probably vote for trump in 2020. I could go on a rant about selfish, racist ,sexist white dudes, but then again, there are some exceptions
