12. I stand by my claim.

Hillary Clinton has recently professed to being unsure, or considering a run for the presidency.

Elizabeth Warren has consistently said that she is 1. Not interested in the presidency. And 2. Wishes to serve out her Senate term.

If you have recent credible evidence to the contrary, I would gladly admit that I am wrong.

I am a liberal. I love Warren. (Not too sure about Hillary -- we'll see I would imagine.)

But, like great senators in our past, I see Elizabeth Warren as a possible Cracker Jack, one who will make her own history. I cannot think a better place to do that than the US Senate.

I am very happy that Warren is not going to run for president. I also will be happy if Hillary Clinton runs, although I disagree with her on some issues, and I do not consider her a liberal.

So if Hillary gains the White House, liberals will need senators like Warren. That is why I am glad that Warren has taken such a strong position of not running for president.

Whoever ends up on the Democratic ticket in 2016, I will support them. But this 2016 focus at this time is maddening. We have a much more important mid-year election this year, when governors, state legislatures, school boards, 435 US Congresspersons, and one third of US Senators will be up for election.

The 2016 presidential election is a mere dream right now. But this year Democrats can make a really big splash. But only if we focus on what really matters. 2016? Nope!

I do not give a fuck who is running in 2016, mainly because nobody is running in 2016. Anybody who says otherwise is a distraction.

GOTV 2014.
