You better at least get ready.
Theres a buzz being fed. Warren gave a speech to the AFL-CIO today, and the draft Warren talk is starting.
Elizabeth Warren is totally wowing @AFLCIO convention, Wonder if she'll enter the race if Hillary, for some reason, doesn't run. #AFLCIO13

@greenhousenyt Outstanding speech. I would not be surprised at all if Draft Warren groups sprung up in Iowa, New Hampshire.

There is no bigger and better demagogue in American politics. No one is as keyed into the politics of victimhood as she is.
The former law professor also will demagogue and run against the Supreme Court:
Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren and AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka denounced the United States Supreme Court on Sunday as a right-wing panel that serves the interests of corporate America, previewing a theme that is likely to rise in prominence with the approach of the 2016 election.
On the opening day of the AFL-CIOs convention, Warren the highest-profile national Democrat to address the gathering here warned attendees of a corporate capture of the federal courts.
Warrens reception in Los Angeles also underscored her core appeal to the progressive base of the Democratic Party. Her entrance into the convention hall was greeted was effusive applause; Trumka hailed her as an honest-to-God champion, the real deal and a senator who stands up to billion-dollar corporations and Wall Street on behalf of working people.
And indeed, the former Harvard Law professors speech was a populist paean to the role of labor in fighting powerful interests [that] have tried to capture Washington and rig the system in their favor.
Im beginning to think Warren will run even if Hillary also runs.
Well be there. Reminding people of what she has worked so hard to have people forget.
@greenhousenyt @instapundit @AFLCIO Of course @SenWarren will .enter race if Hillary doesn't > your study guide http://t.co/3j2q1JeDXk

I’m ready to puke.
How about a Clinton/Warren ticket?
First female ticket...first Native American ticket...First Lesbian ticket...
This is a really bad joke right?
She is a female Obama — a cheerleading community activist. And a cheat as an academic.
Republican. Just saying...
Trumka beating the drum to divert attention from his debacle with ObamaCare.
Andrew Cuomo may have something to say about this....
She can be our first native-American president ..... like they used to call Clinton the 1st black president.
I wouldn’t be surprised. The lefties I know are all ga ga over her. Personally, I think she’s bat-spit crazy.
In saner times, I’d say she’d never have a chance to get elected with her radical politics. But, given that very far left John Kerry came within a whisper of winning in 2004, and very, very far left Obama has been elected twice, she could well be a contender in 2016.
Heck, I think even Mike Dukakis could get elected President these days.
Heap big trouble
Thanks markomalley. Fauxahontas ping. Hey, you know, Scott Brown would have been worse. /s
She will lock up the Native American vote.
I still cannot believe that her outright lie about being Native American AND using it to gain minority preference in her job has been ignored. What she did is criminal, but the media also ignored Obama using Indonesian citizenship to get into college as a foreign student making him ineligible to be POTUS.
If a fake American can get elected, why not a fake Indian?
And if you think Zero has a high opinion of himself, wait until you meet the faux indian. Her ego is three times Obama's. She's an absolutely insufferable Boston Globe moonbat.
Pass the bucket to me when your done....
‘Rats on the warpath again?
You don't appreciate Native American culture.
Satan is mocking us with all the bizarre events in recent years.
This is just more evidence of the biased media.
They treat Conservative women as threats who must be destroyed while cheerleading fake indians.
Please let that be true. We might actually win an election for president.
AFL/CIO is hemorrhaging members over its support of Illegal Alien Amnesty and regressive Free Trade. Their influence is dying...mainly because on key economic issues they have become very anti-American
>”Please let that be true. We might actually win an election for president”<
Heck, we thought the same thing when Obama showed up. Even Bill Clinton thought Obama was only qualified to serve him Coffee.
Be careful what you wish for. LOL
first native american female president? right. whiter than wonder bread.
I work in MA. The far left progressive worship her just as much, if not more than Dear Leader. Almost everyone else despises her.
“All the Ugliness, Twice the Stupidity”
I would just as soon vote for Cindy Sheehan, or Jane Fonda.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Good grief!!!
Are people on the Left just naturally drawn to liars?
Why no one in the MSM will dare question or challenge Obama for fear of being called a racist, no one in the MSM is smart enough to realize when Warren is lying and call her on it.
I saw her interviewed on CNBC about her efforts to bring back Glass-Stegall (which in and of itself is agitprop--the separation of banking and investing was a very small part of Glass-Stegall), and the CNBC interviewer was not smart enough to challenge her claims about the causes of the 1980s Savings and Loan crisis (she claimed it was caused by Reagan's deregulation efforts).
The primary cause of the S&L crisis was an inverted yield curve. The deregulation efforts were an attempt to allow S&Ls to offer broader financial services because they basic model (passbook savings financing mortgage loans) could not work in a financial environment with an extended period of an inverted yield curve.
I think the only people on the Republican side who could debate Warren on economic issues are Paul Ryan (who, because of 2012, is now damaged goods), and Rand Paul.
First, potential Republican candidates need to understand the rising populist trend and co-opt it. This happened before, where Ronald Reagan built a populist coalition which co-opted the post-Watergate populist trend which propelled Jimmy Carter into the White House.
Second, potential Republican candidates need be able to, like Ronald Reagan, speak intelligently and confidently on economic issues without sounding like a used care salesman or a wonk. They need to go back and watch all of the YouTube videos with Milton Friedman.
Not so sure about that. Practically every Democrat in the Washington universe is keyed into the politics of victimhood, so she has plenty of rivals for that distinction.
That would take care of that team in Washington?
Let’s replay her angry speech about “You didn’t build that” over and over.
As well some of her other lunatic rants that won’t play in Peoria.
Thanks for the ping!
If she could think up a new entitlement to push, she might be “on to something” in the phrase of the late JFK. People want their “entitlements”.
Dear Lord, really? This woman will steal all your retirement out right. Just the sight of her makes me ill. Lying pos, wow, what a shock the commies would pump her up.
She doesn't have minority status. She is as white as Ward Churchill. Her only qualification for political office is that she is an accomplished liar.
Fauxcahontas? Surely you jest!
I'm thinking Libby Dole? The Cheney Girl? Who? It's a serious job the GOP faces: coming up with a candidate who can lose to this ridiculously Left-Wing and stupid bimbo from Massholeland while spending a billion-dollar campaign fund. Hey about that Carly execu-slut from CA who lost so handily in her Senate or was it Governor race?
Wait a minute! Susie Collins?
After Obama it can’t get worse. It may not get better, but it can’t get worse. And the Republicans seem determined to hold up their end of the deal with John McCains and Mitt Romneys. To my everlasting shame I voted for both of them.
