Ed Klein reports that Obama is using Valerie Jarrett to urge Elizabeth Warren to challenge Hillary in the primary to protect Obama’s transformation of the nation into something of which he and Michelle can be proud.

Warren will protect Obama’s, ahem, achievements, Hillary can’t be trusted to do that.

It’s entirely believable. ...

If Hillary Clinton runs for President, she’s still the odds-on favorite because she has the Democratic machine behind her.

The conventional wisdom is that the nomination is Hillary’s to lose. If Hillary’s disastrous book rollout and tone-deafness about her wealth are any indication, Hillary might just accomplish the unthinkable of imploding a...

It hasn’t been a good month for Hillary Clinton. It has been a very very bad month, in fact.

This was supposed to be a great month with the launch of her new biography “Hard Choices.” The book tour had her featured on every major television news and enterta...

Hmmm … Elizabeth Warren refuses to say she “will not run” for President

I told you so.  Elizabeth Warren’s repeated supposed refusals to run for President always were framed in the present tense: I am not running for President.

That, of course, technically was correct.  I don’t think anyone of note “is” running for President yet, but many are seriously considering it and likely...

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

Wink, wink.

For someone who “is” not running, and who takes only single digits in national polling (because she “is” not running), Warren made a pretty good showing in a presidential straw poll at the Democratic state convention in Wisconsin, as reported...

What will it take to get Elizabeth Warren to run for President?

Hillary deciding not to run — Warren jumps in to a certainty, in my opinion.

Hillary running — it will take a cause greater than herself to get Warren to run. A cause of historic proportions. A saving of the planet...

You can feel it growing.

Barney Frank thinks Elizabeth Warren will run for President, despite her present-tense denials:

 What Barney Frank lacks in tact, he makes up for in clarity.

The former Massachusetts congressman tells the State House News Service in Massachusetts that it’s “very unlikely” Hillary Clinton won’t seek the presidency in 2016.

But he also...

She’s everywhere, and everyone is talking her up.

Even conservatives.

Liberals want her because she is the fight they want.  Conservatives want her because she is the fight they want.

Hillary is second fiddle.  A well-financed, established, contrived second fiddle, but second fiddle she is. A muddled mixed-bag of corporatism, liberalism, corny capitalism,...

Elizabeth Warren would crush Hillary, and they both know it

Forget the current polling as between Hillary and Elizabeth Warren. It pits Hillary against someone who “isn’t running.”

For all my criticisms of Warren, and they are extensive, I am convinced that if she ran, she would crush Hillary, just as Obama did.

Warren, as did Obama, has a unique ability to demagogue...

Not Elizabeth Warren. 

Warren could defeat Hillary, but it would be a slugfest because there is no way Warren could insulate herself from attacks by the Clinton machine and media sycophants.

There’s only one person who would have what it takes to make the media tingle, and who would be insulated from...

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.

I have been telling you for at least a year that Elizabeth Warren will be a serious challenger to Hillary, if she wants it.

You have to realize that Democrats in general, and particularly the liberal base, don’t give a hoot about Warren’s rip-off of Cherokee identity to juice her resume as...

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...
