Elizabeth Warren, Presidential Nominee if she wants it

Elizabeth Warren, Presidential Nominee if she wants it

My column at The Boston Herald, “Will Elizabeth Warren sell ‘outside the bubble’?”

Ignore the polls showing Hillary up by 50%+ over potential Democratic rivals.

Elizabeth Warren “is not” running. Everyone knows (or assumes) Hillary is.

The second Warren declares she’s seeking the nomination, if she declares, the polls will narrow.

The second Warren goes after Hillary as the crony-capitalist, contrived-candidate that she is, the polls would narrow.

Defeating the Clinton machine would not be easy or quick, but I stand by my view that if Warren were to run, she would end up crushing Hillary. The massive lead would narrow and then evaporate, just like it did with Obama.

But it would end there.

As part of my effort to spread the word, I have a column today at The Boston Herald, Will Elizabeth Warren sell ‘outside the bubble’?.

Boston Herald Will Elizabeth Warren Sell Outside the Bubble

Here is an excerpt, head over to The Herald for the full story:

“Run Elizabeth Run” is the slogan grabbing the headlines and hearts of liberal Democrats.

Warren’s speech opposing the monstrous “CRomnibus” is portrayed as the speech that could launch her presidential campaign. That Elizabeth Warren has become the progressive hero and alternative to Hillary Clinton is beyond doubt.

Warren says she “is not” running for president, which literally is correct. But Warren always uses the present tense, leaving the future open.

The progressive chorus calling on Warren to run is growing louder by the day. This scenario mimics Warren’s supposedly reluctant entry into the 2012 Massachusetts Senate race.

Assuming Warren runs, will she sell outside the progressive bubble?

Comments

The Boston Herald comments on your article are less than friendly to Liz. I don’t know if only conservatives (all five of them) in Boston read the Herald or Liz really is in trouble with the home folks.

I suppose it could be worse. She could be your mother.

That Nutroots picture makes me wonder what flew up her skirts…

“Was it good for you, Liz…???”

Well, Professor, don’t forget that all important native American vote in her back pocket.

I believe she will run for and win the Democrat nomination. In almost every presidential cycle since before Jimmy Carter, Democrats have thrown in with the next new “New Thing.” Hillary is too familiar, with too much of a track record, including losing the nomination in favor of another neophyte last time, for her to win if Warren does decide to run.

She didn’t build that.

They need Warren to run because their base is too over the Hillary.

She ain’t sending a thrill up anyone’s leg.

    She’s a woman – for many that will be enough. The Dems found a winning formula in Obama so they’ll try it again. And we have a depressingly large number of people who want to be associated with ‘Historic’ events.

“Warren says she ‘is not’ running for president, which literally is correct. But Warren always uses the present tense, leaving the future open.”

It’s open now. Let’s hear her unequivocally state that she WILL not run for the Presidency now, OR in the future. What would keep her from reversing herself next year? A sense of integrity? A skeptical media? Certainly not her core base of support.

Warren: Yes, I am a crazy person. Yes, we scam.

Obama never would have sold outside the progressive bubble but for race and collective white guilt. Warren doesn’t have any of that going for her.
