Hillary Clinton What Difference Does It Make

There is a reason the entire left side of the nation arose with their hopes and prayers seeming to be answered as soon as Noam Scheiber raised the possibility of an Elizabeth Warren challenge to Hillary.

It was as if a great, lumbering, stale weight had been lifted from their souls.

Time Magazine recently ran a cover with a silhouette of Chris Christie with the headline, The Elephant in the Room.

It was, of course, a play on Christie’s weight without coming right out and saying it.

There’s also an elephant in Elizabeth Warren’s room, but you can’t weigh it in pounds.

It’s the thing Noam...

Atlantic Liberals Want Elizabeth Warren

Hillary Clinton should watch her back. If Hillary thought there couldn’t possibly be another Barack Obama ’08, she better think again

We’ve addressed this many times before.

Elizabeth Warren is playing the base perfectly. Stoking them up with class warfare and anti-Supreme Court demagoguery, yet playing coy to a presidential bid.

But her train is...

Hoorahs and adulation have been heaped on Elizabeth Warren for proposing to reduce the student loan rate to 0.75%, the rate charged by the Federal Reserve for very short term loans to banks.

While the left-blogosphere, progressive movement, and low-information political consumers have been cheering, we repeatedly have exposed that proposal as economic folly and political demagoguery:

Easy access to student loans for people who have little prospect of repayment helped feed the Higher Ed bubble, much as easy access to mortgages for people who had little prospect of repayment helped feed the housing bubble.  It made good politics but really bad economics.

Easy student loans have allowed higher...

Things are never simple with Elizabeth Warren.

Warren made headlines the other day when she claimed her brother lived on his social security of only $13,200 in order to score a political point.  Considering Warren’s fabulous wealth, the obvious question was why she wasn’t helping him.

There is plenty to criticize about Elizabeth Warren’s made-for-YouTube theatrics in the Senate Banking Committee.

Warren has some good goals shared on both sides of the aisle, such as addressing “too big to fail” and “too big to prosecute,” but unfortunately she goes about it the wrong way by belittling witnesses with questions properly...
