Yeah well, Trump can call her Pocohantas 10,000 times, and that's the end of her, so neener neener. :taunt:

Or possibly people want an intelligent, principled president this time around. Hmm. :think:

Warren emerges as potential compromise nominee

Centrists who once said the senator would lead the party to ruin are coming around to her as an alternative to Bernie Sanders.


CHARLESTON, S.C. — There was a time not so long ago when leading Democrats warned that Elizabeth Warren’s “fantasy-based blue-state populism” risked leading the party to ruin.

But in a revealing tell of how far her campaign has come since its early February launch, some unlikely voices in the center of the party are growing more comfortable with the idea of Warren as the nominee.

It’s a sign of how the ideological lanes of the 2020 primary have blurred and overlapped and of the steady progress Warren is making as a candidate. But it’s also a statement on Bernie Sanders, Warren’s top rival for progressive votes. Sanders continues to face significant resistance from within the party — and nowhere more so than among the moderates and establishment players who blanch at his talk of democratic socialism.

Warren, on the other hand, is gaining traction among those who once rejected her muscular vision of liberalism. She’s drawn notice for her wide-ranging “I have a plan for that” policy playbook, which has just enough growth-and-opportunity, center-left measures to earn her a serious look from former detractors. The Massachusetts senator may be out of sync with party centrists, but she’s drawn at least one sharp line with Sanders that is resonating with prominent moderate voices as she surges into the top tier in national and early state polls.

“One is a Democratic capitalist narrative,” said Matt Bennett, a co-founder of Third Way, a centrist think tank that convened a conference of party insiders in South Carolina this week designed to warn about the risks of a nominee whose views are out of the political mainstream. “The other is a socialist narrative.”

There's another name that Trump may call Senator Warren that will lead to her defeat -- "Socialist."

As good as Warren would be, the most important thing is to defeat Trump and re take the Senate. Right now (and it may change) that means a Biden-Harris ticket.

FiveThirtyEight - Nate Silver
Only Two Meaningful Shifts Have Happened In The Democratic Primary So Far

Warren and Buttigieg have gained in the polls, Sanders has fallen


Two big, obvious things have happened. One is that Elizbeth Warren has gained at Bernie Sanders’s expense. Contrary to the claims made by the Sanders campaign, it’s not just “manufactured media narratives” that have Warren surging or Sanders slumping. Instead, that’s what you get if you make any effort to look at an average or cross-section of polls instead of cherry-picking, although the shifts have been fairly gradual.

The other trend is that Beto O’Rourke and Pete Buttigieg have swapped places. At the end of March, O’Rourke was at 9.3 percent and Buttigieg was at 2.6 percent; now, it’s Buttigieg at 7.7 percent and O’Rourke at 3.6 percent.

I promise this weekend to watch her some more, but still can't get past the librarian/academia demeanor... will people want to see her on TV every day for four years? I certainly don't mean as a woman, just as the voice and face of America. Enough wanted (and want) The Donald Show... between Stern's mention of "socialist" (though they are going to use that on every D anyway) and the really sort of gray area about heritage, it's hard to see a path. But I didn't see one for Donald either so who the hell knows (except maybe Realist). :P

Every time I hear Sen. Warren speak it sounds like she is angrily lecturing me. I can visualise the finger wag. Is it just me? Am I a sexist? (None of the other female candidates make me feel like that.)

Kinda sounds sexist to me. Judging a woman by her presentation rather than her message. The "angry" objection is also stereotypical sexism (as well as racist). Sorry! It creeps up on the best of us. :bighug:

To be fair, Bernie wags his finger too -- that, and the tone of his voice annoys me just as much.

I honestly can't listen to either one of them for very long, so in my case the messenger definitely distracts from the message.

Come to think of it, thank you -- Bernie annoys me, too. I must be ageist (as well, apparently, as sexist and racist).

There actually is a sexist word for a person of one of the sexes who lectures in an angry way. I didn't use the word and will not do so here. I am just annoyed being lectured to. I am not some dumb student who needs to be taught by a college professor (or a Harvard Law School professor; been there, done that).

Just to note that there is a difference between being sexist/ageist/whateverist and having a sexist/ageist/whateverist reaction or saying something that is s/a/w. :towel:

Revitalizing Diplomacy: A 21st Century Foreign Service

American security and prosperity depend on robust diplomacy. Our diplomats are the front line of our engagement with the world. They serve in over 270 posts worldwide, many in difficult or dangerous locations. They communicate our goals in more than 70 languages. They manage conflict, help U.S. companies compete, and assist Americans abroad. Most importantly, they reflect our values on the world stage. But a diplomacy-first strategy to meet the challenges of the 21st century means that we need world-class diplomats. And after the Trump Administration, that’s going to take a whole lot of work.

Through a toxic combination of malice and neglect, Donald Trump has declared war on the State Department. In one of his first acts, he attempted to cut the State Department’s budget by a third. Some senior career officials were pushed out, while others resigned in protest. The State Department has lost 60% of its career ambassadors and 20% of its most experienced civil servants. And too often, these skilled diplomats have been replaced with totally unqualified campaign donors and other Trump cronies.

But while Trump may have accelerated the exodus from the State Department, he didn’t start it. Years of hiring freezes and spending cuts have caused many talented diplomats to head for the doors. China’s spending on diplomacy has doubled under President Xi Jinping — while America’s spending on core diplomatic capability has declined over the last decade.

To take a meaningful leadership position in the world, to protect American interests, and to avoid conflicts around the globe, we need to reverse this trend. That’s why today, I’m rolling out my plan to rebuild the State Department.

Jesse Jackson says Warren will be in the 2020 race 'to the end'

Prominent civil rights leader the Rev. Jesse Jackson praised Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) in an interview with Politico published Sunday, saying he believes she'll be in the presidential race "to the end."

“Personality is the conduit through which information gets — she has a personality that’s magnetic, and she’ll be in this race to the end,” Jackson told the outlet.

“I don’t know how it’ll end up, but she’ll be a factor in the outcome of this race.”

Jackson's high marks for the presidential contender come after she delivered a standout performance in the first 2020 Democratic presidential debate.

In the weeks leading up to debate, Warren has received glowing media profiles accompanied by ambitious policy proposals.

Bloomberg
Elizabeth Warren Starts Winning Begrudging Respect on Wall Street

There’s a new whisper on Wall Street -- maybe Elizabeth Warren isn’t so bad.

The Democratic senator, who rose to national prominence by calling for tough regulation after the financial crisis, is winning respect from a small but growing circle of senior bankers and hedge fund managers. As the presidential candidate from Massachusetts takes aim at the “rich and powerful” with a slew of tax-raising policy proposals, some financial types who fit that description say she’s proven capable and makes some good points.

“If she ends up being the nominee, I’d have no trouble supporting her at all,” said David Schamis, chief investment officer of Atlas Merchant Capital, where he’s a founding partner alongside former Barclays Plc head Bob Diamond. While Warren isn’t Schamis’s top choice, he said: “I think she is smart, hardworking, responsible and thoughtful. And I think she thinks markets are important.” ...

For some Wall Streeters who lean liberal, Warren is an acceptable alternative to candidates who trigger their most visceral objections: Republican President Donald Trump on the right and Senator Bernie Sanders, a self-described democratic socialist, on the left.

It would be “just wrong,” Warren told CBS’s “Face the Nation” in March, to call her a democratic socialist: “I believe in markets. Markets that work. Markets that have a cop on the beat and have real rules and everybody follows them.”

Daily Beast - Gideon Resnick
Elizabeth Warren Triples Her First-Quarter Haul, Outraises Bernie Sanders and Kamala Harris

Warren is now considered among the race’s frontrunners and her raising $19 million over the last three months seems to confirm as much.


Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) saw a massive fundraising surge in the last three months, lending further credence to her status as a frontrunner among a large 2020 presidential field.

In an email shared with supporters on Monday afternoon, Warren's campaign manager Roger Lau said that in the second quarter of the year, the Massachusetts Democrat raised more than $19.1 million from more than 384,000 people making more than 683,000 donations. The average contribution was $28 and, according to the campaign, more than 80 percent of second-quarter donors were first-time givers. The campaign said they now have $19.7 million cash on-hand.

That haul represents an enormous increase from Warren’s first-quarter fundraising—which, early on, raised doubts about whether her policy-centric campaign would resonate with voters. In the first quarter, Warren’s campaign said she raised more than $6 million, somewhat quieting those early concerns, especially as more than $1.4 million of that came in during the last week of the quarter.

Although, simultaneously, the campaign spent $5.2 million, in part on building up a large staffing operation in the early voting states. That hasn’t tapered off at all as Warren’s operation boasts over 300 staffers with 60 percent working in the four early-voting states.

New York Times
Warren's Immigration Plan Includes Pledge to Investigate Abuses Under Trump

Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts offered an immigration proposal on Thursday that would create new protections for migrants, investigate allegations of abuse under the Trump administration and allow far higher numbers of refugees into the country.

Ms. Warren’s plan amounts to an aggressive push for liberal immigration priorities, like decriminalizing unauthorized border crossings. She also pledged to establish judicial review for immigration cases and create an “Office of New Americans” that would provide services to immigrants transitioning into American society, including English classes.

Ms. Warren has gained ground in polling of the Democratic presidential race in recent months by providing a steady diet of detailed policy proposals on issues including a wealth tax and student debt cancellation. But until Thursday, an immigration proposal had been conspicuously absent.

Much of her plan, which she posted on Medium, calls for a suite of measures similar to those that have already been suggested by other Democrats seeking the party’s nomination.
