Whatever happened to her, I don’t really care except I hope those voters don’t go to Bernie.

She's also made powerful enemies and they're coming after her.

I think the media managed to convince a segment of the voting electorate that a woman cannot beat Trump. I think that's horseshit, but they kept saying it and pushing it.

Liberals and progressives want liberal and progressive policies and laws and judges. And everyone who is not in the Trump cult or an idiot or a hypocrite wants Trump gone. Sen. Warren just doesn't inspire sufficient confidence she can beat Trump. The greatest politician of our age doesn't think so either, so yeah, thanks Obama.

*shrug* anyone who thinks they can easily predict at this moment which of the several top tier candidates can beat trump is either fooling themselves of trying to fool others. and given the greatest politician of our age’s failure to deliver in 16 i’d say that goes for him too.

i’ll say what i said before—if obama wants to back a candidate, then he should back one. dark hints & vague warnings only demoralize voters & hurt his own party’s chances.

(& correct me if i’m wrong, but didn’t you predict a clinton landslide at one point?)

Don't know how serious your "greatest politician of our age" is meant.

I love Obama as a person.

Nonetheless he failed in his greatest challenge - avoiding President Trump. I think during the last 50 years there were some politicians somewhere in this world who would not have failed.

Obama didn't fail Trump onto us, Hillary did. Her counterpunches seemed to be weak and they were. I see too much of Hillary when I see Warren. Not that I don't think that Warren would make an excellent president, it's that she needs to appear as a stronger leader.

I see too much of Democrats taking on other Democrats. They need to take on Trump. To be elected you need the backing of the middle class, not just the Democrats. Ganging up on the leader in the polls only diminishes the glitter of all the Democrats. Warren is as guilty of that as anyone.

Wall Street Journal
Warren Names Three High-Profile Lawmakers as Campaign Co-Chairs

Sen. Elizabeth Warren named three prominent women to be co-chairs of her presidential campaign: freshmen Democratic Reps. Deb Haaland of New Mexico, Katie Porter of California and Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts.

Ms. Pressley is one of the four Democrats referred to on Capitol Hill as "The Squad." The other three "squad" lawmakers—Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and Ilhan Omar of Minnesota —have backed Sen. Bernie Sanders in the party's presidential primary.

The three new campaign co-chairs are poised to be some of Ms. Warren's most prominent surrogates, and they each bring something to the table. Ms. Porter is a native Iowan and has campaigned with Ms. Warren there. She's also a longtime Warren protege and former student.

Ms. Pressley has emerged as one of Ms. Warren's most visible African American supporters. The impact of her backing was on display Thursday night in Atlanta, when Ms. Pressley helped calm protesters who interrupted the senator during a speech at a historically black university.

It means grow a set of Testicles, a Penis, and a Combover. Ya, tell me there is nogt some anti-woman BS going on. Give me a good laugh.

I mean ffs, come on. You guys are comparing her to some glorious leader figure that has never existed. Mighty Abe Linchon was a lanky, ugly git who apparently had a high pitched, whiny, irritating voice and who failed most of his political life, and I'm saying this as a guy who likes Linchon a lot from what I know of him. If Warren was a "stronger leader" you would be saying she is too masculine and open to charges she is a Lesbian.

Stop second guessing yourselves. YOU, yes you, just need to be forthright proclaiming your principles, not second guessing yourselves. Second guessing yourselves and avoiding a "not strong enough" leader is what landed you with 2014 and 2016. Being forthright about your principles and proclaiming them landed you 2018 and Louisiana.

Trump was forthright about his guiding principle that He is fantastic and He will make everyone great. That's it, his whole message. He is failing now because he spends most of his time bitching about mean everyone else and not talking about his core principle, how great he is. That's it!

It's YOU that need to be the stronger advocate, not expecting someone like Warren to do all the heavy lifting all by herself so you can sit back and be comfortable. Stop bitching because she is not Supergirl who can take all the pressure to do something off you and actually accept you have to do some work. Because if lovely Gayness McButtieg gets to be front runner you will suddenly be bitching that he is not strong enough either or some other bullshit.

Fuck sake you dont see the Bernie-bots bitching about how weak their candidate is, and that guy is a paper tiger if no-one is. Fake Democrat, fake Socialist, all attack and pound the table, that's our Bernie.
The difference between the Middle Ages, and the Age of the Internet, is that in the Middle Ages no-one thought the Earth was flat.

Warren's "appointment" of honorary campaign chairs is political correctness at its zenith. It will impress no one already in Warren's camp.

So, meh.

Warren touts plan to battle opioid crisis

ROCHESTER – Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren talked about her $100 billion proposal to tackle the drug crisis Saturday during a community conversation in a city that has been hit hard by opioid addiction. ...

Public defender Amaresh Srikanthan said that the way substance abuse disorders are treated in the criminal justice system varies from state to state, and even within counties in New Hampshire.

“How do you intend on incentivizing states and municipalities into believing drug addiction is something to be cured with public health options rather than the criminal justice system, and overall how do you plan on changing the conversation from incarceration to treatment?” Srikanthan asked.

Warren said, “193 people will die today from substance abuse. It’s like a plane crash, and it will happen again tomorrow, and the next day and the next day until we make real change in this country.” She said the problem with substance abuse is that Americans know what needs to happen to help those in crisis, but nobody wants to spend the money, in part, because of the stigma attached to opioid addiction.

Warren compared the drug crisis to the AIDS epidemic of the 1980s when funding research and treatment was difficult because of the stigma associated with the disease.

In 1990, Congress passed the Ryan White CARE Act. Warren said her comprehensive plan to end the opioid crisis is modeled after that. ...

This marks Warren’s 24th trip to New Hampshire since January. She has visited 28 states and Puerto Rico during her presidential campaign, according to organizers.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren earned nearly $2 million consulting for corporations and financial firms, records show

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) earned nearly $2 million working as a consultant for corporations and financial firms while she was a law professor at Harvard University, the University of Pennsylvania and other law schools, according to records her campaign abruptly released Sunday evening.

Warren’s consulting work often involved companies dealing with bankruptcy, which was her specialty as an academic. Her campaign had been asked repeatedly for the information and had declined to release it multiple times.

Her work for some of the companies doesn’t fit neatly with her current presidential campaign brand as a crusader against corporate interests.

For instance, the documents released Sunday show that Warren made about $80,000 from work she did for creditors in the energy company Enron’s bankruptcy and $20,000 as a consultant for Dow Chemical, a company that was trying to limit the liability it faced from silicone breast implants that were made by a connected firm.

San Antonio Current
Democratic Candidate Elizabeth Warren to Open San Antonio Office on Saturday as Part of Texas Focus

Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren's campaign will open San Antonio and Austin offices this weekend as part of an early focus on organizing in the Lone Star State.

Texas for Warren will open the offices Saturday, December 14, and host training for supporters interested in working with the campaign. Dallas, Houston and Fort Worth offices will follow in the next few weeks, according to a press announcement.

Warren ranks third in national polling for the nomination, behind Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders. Her early emphasis on Texas, long considered a write-off for progressives, could be another sign Dems think demographic changes have put the state into play.

In August, Warren named longtime San Antonio political organizer Jenn Longoria as Texas director, becoming first non-Texan presidential hopeful to name a campaign leader for the state this cycle.

In Part 3 of our series on pivotal moments in the lives of the 2020 Democratic presidential contenders, we spoke with Elizabeth Warren about how she came to be known as the blow-it-up candidate. With help from Andrew Ross Sorkin, a financial columnist at The Times and founder of DealBook; Harry Reid, a former Senate majority leader; and David Axelrod, a former Obama adviser, we explore Ms. Warren’s rise to prominence as an advocate for overhauling the financial system — and why those beliefs can help us understand her run for president now.

Boston Globe
Elizabeth Warren releases climate plan with goal of creating 10.6 million jobs

Senator Elizabeth Warren on Friday released a climate change plan that aims to create 10.6 million new jobs through nearly $11 trillion in public and private spending, calling the need to transition the United States to a green economy a top priority if she is elected president .

Citing a recent study that shows there’s just over a decade left to avoid irreversible damage to the planet, Warren wrote in her latest campaign proposal that major action is needed to reduce global emissions. The Cambridge Democrat framed the threat as an opportunity, pointing to American successes in World War II and the space race, and arguing for investment in green policies that would spur private sector investment and create jobs.

“America has a long and proud history of rising to the challenges that have faced this country — and defeating the cliamte crisis is no exception,” Warren wrote in a Medium post Friday, the morning after the latest Democratic presidential debate.

As the early state contests rapidly approach, Warren is continuing to aggressively roll out detailed policy plans as she looks to regain some lost ground in the polls in Iowa and New Hampshire. Since the beginning of December, she’s released plans to strengthen work protections for part time employees, combat warming oceans, and crack down on financial corruption.

Warren ends wine cave offensive

The senator is returning to her stay-above-the-fray approach.


CONCORD, N.H. — Wine caves are out. Universal child care, student loan debt, and political corruption are in.

After Elizabeth Warren’s bumpy ride as a front-runner this past fall — her fundraising has slipped and she’s stalled in national and state polls — the Massachusetts senator is done with the attacks against former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg and reverting to the approach that helped power her initial rise in the polls.

When asked here Thursday about Buttigieg’s $24.7 million fundraising haul, Warren would only say, “I didn’t spend one single minute selling access to my time to millionaires and billionaires.” Then she pivoted to her gratitude for her own donors.

Her campaign’s emails to supporters struck a similarly non-combative tone in announcing their fundraising for the fourth quarter.

And in a speech on New Year’s Eve in Boston, Warren offered a rebuttal of her rivals’ critiques that she insists on damaging purity tests when she’s not pure herself, but without naming names. ...

The moves are part of an attempt to return to the core messaging and stay-above-fray style that served her so well for much of the campaign. But it’s also an effort to move beyond her recent slog.

As a San Antonio resident I saw Castro up close numerous times and he is incredibly adaptive and real. There is a strong anti Castro narrative constructed of lies and half truths and that's certainly also the case with Warren.
I'd vote for her over Biden or Sanders without reservation (ha-ha).
She HAS supported the types of legislation that address the needs of the people over lobbyest.
