Watch Elizabeth Warren’s reaction when Bill Maher says she’ll make a terrific presidential candidate

Watch Elizabeth Warren’s reaction when Bill Maher says she’ll make a terrific presidential candidate

That Elizabeth Warren twinkle just won’t leave progressives’ eyes — or Warren’s.

Elizabeth Warren says she “is not running” for President.

(You know where I’m going with this, don’t you?)

Progressives will not take “is not running” for an answer.

Ready for Warren is up and running, and now so are other progressive groups in Iowa and New Hampshire, as reported by The Hill, Liberal grass roots gather to find a challenger for Hillary Clinton:

Liberal groups are building a grassroots army in Iowa and New Hampshire in hopes of stopping a Hillary Clinton coronation in 2016.

While the progressive groups don’t have a candidate, they are hiring organizers and opening offices as if one will emerge.

At a minimum, the groups hope their efforts will push Clinton to the left. And if the political winds blow just right, the activists hope Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) will take the plunge — and turn their organizing work into the foundation for her candidacy.

A Princeton professor writing at CNN says This is Elizabeth Warren’s moment because of Hillary’s cozy relationship with Wall Street:

After spending several years championing the cause of the consumer and railing against the power of big banks, the Massachusetts Democrat may be perfectly positioned to react to the revelation of secretly taped conversations within the Federal Reserve that have exposed the cozy relationship that exists between the regulators in Washington and the regulated on Wall Street….

Given the widespread concern about this problem and Warren’s skill at handling this issue, these could shape up to be [Senate] hearings that have the same kind of impact as Sen. William Fulbright’s classic interrogation of officials about Lyndon Johnson’s Vietnam policies in 1966 or the select committee investigation of Watergate in 1973 when Sen. Sam Ervin revealed all the wrongs that Richard Nixon had committed.

Right now the Democratic playing field for 2016 is more fluid than many think. While former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, assuming she runs, would be a formidable candidate and a clear frontrunner, there is also still room for another candidate to challenge her and potentially to rise to the top of the pack.

I know, I know.

Elizabeth Warren “is not running” for president.

I’d pay to see a gun fight between Princess Running Bare and Ol’ Walleyes.

PRIME entertainment… And not a chance in hell they could be elected. Not after teh Obmaic Decline.

Warren is too smart to run in 2016.

Obama is engaged in a slow-motion train wreck. His failures are becoming so obvious and laughable that the media can’t even protect him anymore. He’s poised to raise a giant middle finger to the 65% of Americans that oppose amnesty.

Unless McConnell and Boehner do something absolutely idiotic like trying to push immigration amnesty, any Democrat is going to have an unbelievable uphill battle to try and distance themselves from Obama.

If Warren ran and lost she would forever be tainted as somebody that wanted to follow Obama. She’s still relatively young, she can wait.

Hillary, on the other hand, is desperate. She’s an old woman, there are already serious questions about whether she is too old for the job right now. She HAS to run, no matter the climate.

Warren is going to go out there and let Hillary take the ‘follow Obama’ bullet, and then she’s going to try and run in 2020.

I still think she’s going to lose, but I think that’s her plan.

    Unfortunately for her, she’s not young enough to wait.

    Warren’s 65 now Even if she were to run in this cycle, she wouldn’t take the Presidential Oath until she’s 67 that would make her the fourth person over the age of 65 to be elected president out of 44. If she were to wait until the 2020 Presidential election cycle, she would be starting to campaign at 69, campaigning from age 69 to age 71 and then assuming that she were to win would take the oath well on her way to 72. That would immediately make her the oldest person to become president (Reagan currently holds that record at 69 years 349 days).

    It’s largely Hillary Clinton’s same problem, although Hillary is ALREADY 66 (she’ll be 67 on October 26). IF Clinton runs for President, she will become the 2nd oldest person to become president (at 69 Years, 84 days, Reagan will still have her beat by 265 days).

    So, both Clinton and Warren are basically locked into THIS cycle if either of them wants to be President.

      If the Republican’s look like they’re going to nominate Paul, Cruz, or Walker (or other conservative possibilities*) then the likelihood of Elizabeth Warren running for President in 2016 goes way up. In the mind of a Liberal/Progressive/Socialist they implicitly believe they can win against a conservative in the general election.

      *Rick Perry, Mike Pence, and Rick Snyder are other possibilities. Yes, Rick Snyder of Michigan has said a word or two about being open to the possibility of running for President. My favorite is Mike Pence, however, even if he isn’t seen as having a defining issue that Rick Perry or Scott Walker would have.

      And of course, Sarah Palin knocks all of them down a peg (in my opinion) if she chose to run. I don’t think she will though.

        PrincetonAl in reply to Eastwood Ravine. | October 9, 2014 at 6:57 am

        Mike Pence is a horrible choice. He makes me sick to my stomach, especially to the degree that conservatives swoon at such an idiot and phony.

        Mitch Daniels moved Indiana to the right, passed union reform, shrunk government, increased freedom, did healthcare reform with HSAs that shrunk government healthcare spending while improving outcomes.

        Let’s compare Pence, with his “no defining issue”.

        – Common Core: he supports it, and after the backlash, supports it repackaged under another name. He literally does not understand the issue, and trusts his big government advisors who are drooling over having such a useless idiot in office

        – Medicaid Expansion. Nuff said, you financially illiterate idiot, Pence. Sign on for Obamacare provisions, and put up no fight.

        – Government Economy Oversight – pushes all kinds of state boards for economic sectors that are just deadweight, crony capitalist spending. One can assume as president he would think the Japanese-style support for businesses through lavish subsidies would make sense for creating jobs. He is an economic idiot or cynical liar.

        – Nanny State Big Government type – he is pushing the fully funded government pre-school that republicans in the rest of the country are fighting.

        Pence has a super majority in his legislature and can accomplish anything he wants. Not only has he failed with a defining issue, the issues that define him are the worst big government RINO statist policies in a deeply red state on the heels of a governor who for 8 years pushed the state in the other direction.

        Republicans are the party of stupid. I give you Mike Pence, Exhibit A. He makes me want to vomit, that in an all red state, not only is he not moving if father to the right, he is undoing what Mitch Daniels did.

        Barf. Why do conservatives support this schmuck?

      Estragon in reply to Chuck Skinner. | October 9, 2014 at 3:01 am

      That sort of statistic is not determinative. No one ever beat Babe Ruth’s home run total until someone did. No one beat Lou Gehrig’s consecutive game record until someone did. No Democrat was ever elected President without the Solid South until LBJ did.

      People are living longer all the time. Reagan was more robust than Carter – and probably Mondale, too.

      Times often don’t allow people too many chances. Mario Cuomo could have had the Democrats’ nod in ’88 or ’92 if he wanted it. If the winds blow the right way, Warren may well get in this cycle, but she would be best advised to wait.

      The next President will have a mess to clean up and will anger many doing it. He is likely to be vulnerable at reelection.

        Ironically the two people who could stop a Hillary nomination are both from Massachusetts – Governor Deval Patrick and Sen. Elizabeth Warren Patrick is black (and that gives him a heads up) and Warren being a female and even more left-wing than Hillary or arguably Obama can command greater loyalty fromteh Left. Warren should be easy to beat as she comes across like a hard left scold, but the Republican Party is not known as The Stupid Party without a good reason. Also if we get a Jeb Bush then all bets are off.

    Captain Keogh in reply to Olinser. | October 9, 2014 at 4:04 pm

    We have an ignorant and ill informed electorate and the Democrats control the popular culture to the extent that they will be spinning Obama’s record to the point that too many dumb asses will think he was another Lincoln (how many still blame Bush even though he has been gone for 6 years?). Also the Democratic machine excels in getting disinterested, lazy voters who are normally Democrats who do not feel like coming out to vote to get to the polls.

This is amusing considering this very blog has outed Warren’s false populism.

Warren vs Clinton in the Dem 2016 primaries is the Mega-Harpy Cage Fight I’d ike to see.

Not A Member of Any Organized Political | October 8, 2014 at 5:52 pm

Wow Oh Wow! That is plain creepy! Both are just plain ol’ fashioned weirdo creepy.

Think I’ll make Halloween masks out of those screen shots and I’ll be rich!

Rich like Millionaire Lizzie Warren and Millionaire Maher.

I do hope she runs, but I don’t really expect her to.

Doug Wright Old Grouchy | October 8, 2014 at 6:55 pm

Ah, got a great campaign slogan for Warren: “She’ll finish what Obama started, there’s more to do!” Wonder if she’ll take that approach?

Henry Hawkins | October 8, 2014 at 8:45 pm

Too politically toxic to head the consumer rights fed agency she called for but not too toxic to be president? Hmmmm.

In a primary run, Warren will have to outline all her positions on all pertinent issues, not just the ones she wants broadcast by MSNBC. et al. Her choice will be to lie like Obama did or reveal a profoundly radical liberalism.

Then again, the concept of electing America’s first Native American president is pretty compelling.

I don’t think Warren can contain her inner radical through a campaign. Academics are like that.

The Warren who could win the nomination could never make it in a general election. If Obama had stated his objectives clearly in 2008, he could not have won. He played the post-partisan-no-more-business-as-usual candidate and fooled a lot of people.

She makes George McGovern look like a moderate.

The war against women by disingenuous women finds it misogynistic supporters like Obama finds useful idiots.

I hope Obama anoints Warren as well. Empty chair endorsement meet empty pedestal.

    Captain Keogh in reply to jennifer a johnson. | October 9, 2014 at 3:59 pm

    I hope that the Obama’s (Barack and Michelle) as well as Valerie Jarrett’s intense dislike for the Clinton’s makes them throw their support for Granny Warren(or even better yet, Joe Biden).

Let’s have the debate as a nation. Put Warren out there and let’s see naked Progressivism on display.

If she wins, at least we know we are doomed 🙂

    Dude! You used “naked” in a sentence with “Warren”…!!!

    That is SO WRONG…!!!
