DETROIT On the night before her Friday keynote address to a gathering of progressive activists here, Sen. Elizabeth Warren tried to slip into a hotel restaurant for a quiet dinner. But the former law professor has become a liberal superstar, and when a few admirers spotted her walking to the corner of the dining room, they cheered loudly. A moment later, more joined in the applause. Then one urged her, Run for president!
The next morning at Netroots Nation, where Warren (D-Mass.) gave a fiery sermon for economic populism The game is rigged, and it isnt right! scores of swooning supporters wore faux-straw boater hats with Warren for President stickers and chanted, Run, Liz, run!
Even as Hillary Rodham Clinton looms as the overwhelming favorite for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination, the partys base is stirring for a primary fight. Theres a pining for someone else, and a medley of ambitious Democrats are making moves many of them previously unreported to position themselves to perhaps be that someone.

How about a Moonbeam/Liawatha ticket?
Please make him go away.
Hilary is definitely toast. Every liberal woman I know is shocked that she is in favor of GMO crops and is aligned with Monsanto. “Traitor,” they call her.
The issue is larger than most people realize.
Slow drumbeat to draft the fake indian has begun.
What if HRC and Bloomberg run on a third-party ticket — who would win?
Note to self: I guess one of them would have to move from New York.
Horrible thought, and I don’t have a clue whether they could win/
These people are literally insane.
They have Hillary Clinton who is a habitual liar and the worst Secretary of State if not the worst government employee in history. Then there’s Elizabeth Warren a women with no accomplishments and a career as an affirmative action fake American Indian. And Governor Moonbeam, a 76 year old eccentric child, and a California weirdo.
Clinton wins New York, Brown wins California and Cruz wins Texas and Florida. Could be interesting with a free-for-all for the other 46 (or the other 53 if you’re the Resident).
He is 76 years old right now. He would be just shy of 79 in January 17. I thought the Democrats hated old white guys. Harry Reid, another old white guy, said so.
An even more perfected yes-man pawn for the Stalinist Rat-union-industrial complex than the current Loser in office.
How fitting that they met in the compost arena of liberal/progressive implementation: Detroit.
“I turned him into a jack-in-the-box with his own bad face.”
“Wish it to the cornfield, Son. Please?”
If she runs for President, she's going to run as a classic lunchbox Democrat. Yes, I know she's an elitist snob and a hypocritical limousine liberal, but she'll have the media glossing over this and Republicans will be portrayed as the party of the rich.
This is another reason why Palin must run, so she can neutralize her.
Hillary got ambushed from the left in 2008 when an unknown guy from Kenya by way of Chicago snuck in an stole the kishka.
This time she knows it’s coming but will likely fail again.
I think the Chicago mob has mutually assured destruction with the Clinton Crime Family over Arkancides.
The Clintons can’t use their vaunted private detective op to trash the opposition.
Gosh, do you know where Anthony is? Maybe he could do it to Obama too. And Holder. And Reid. And Pelosi. And Kerry. And Warren. And Boehner...
Bill better get his Arkancide folks into gear.
Bill just might be the next target if Hillary needs a boost.
She'd love to run as the First Widow to seek the office
These are the kinds of choices that warm the deluded hearts of the American people.
“Laugh at Warren all you want FReepers. “
Agreed, Hillary got beaten by a nonentity last time out. Not really sure Warren could pull things off like Obama did, but you are right to be wary.
I'm not laughing; she reminds me of the Eugene McCarthy campaign in early 1968, which at the time was seen as a quixotic attack from the left on LBJ, but which took him down, only to see RFK brush McCarthy aside. Whether Brown sees himself as the RFK of 2016, it's too soon to tell.
I’m constantly amazed at the gullibility of the populace.
She wants it so bad, she probably would. Who would win? Ted Cruz!
Can you imagine a race with three women? Warren D, Hillary I, Palin R.
The strategy is, by running left-wing nuts alongside Hillary, she looks to be almost acceptable in comparison. Young democrats have no interest in Mrs. Clinton after getting burned with Obama. They’ve learned their lesson about voting for someone just because they’re the first “fill in the blank” president.
Interesting. I remember well the Texas primary, which was the end of Hitlery. The community organizers got to the caucus rooms early and wouldn’t let her supporters in. Amazed that someone was more crooked than she, she bowed out, but probably not until the SofS job was safely in her pocket.
How can a president “overturn the Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby” decision, as the article states Elizabeth Warren vows to do? What is this, an autocracy?
How come no conservative president has “reversed” Roe vs. Wade, a law which has dismembered/executed 60 million little tykes?
Epic debate potential: Clinton vs Warren vs Biden vs Brown
I like that one!
Brown would be preferable to Clinton, Warren and Biden. There I’ve said it. Now I’ve got to go and wash my mouth out with soap . . . Followed by a good whiskey.
One advantage of Moonbeam is that he would be stoned so much of the time that he might accidentally make a good decision now and then.
If Jerry Brown had confronted Carter earlier in ‘76, I am confident he would have won the Democrat nomination. Like Frank Church and others, he misread the dynamic of the then new extensive primary system under the McGovern rule changes.
He ran again in ‘80, when Ted Kennedy sucked the air out of the room, and Brown going “moonbeam” after ‘76 made him seem less serious. By ‘92, he was back, and actually won as the anti-Bill Clinton candidate in a number of areas, including my then state of CT.
If he runs again, he is entering Harold Stassen territory. His old “Moonbeam” foibles seem rather staid compared to Obama and even WJC.
He is way too old now to be a force among the Dems. However, he could take some votes away from a would be insurgent.
I would love to see a true progressive, liberal, socialist, communist from MA run.
“the possibility of Brown running for the White House.”
HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA............ catch breath.... HA HA HA HA HA HA.....
Please please let him win the nomination!!!!!!
JERRY BROWN 2016!
Hi. You should check out Ted Cruz’ speech from last night at Western Conservative Summit. He gave one of the best explanations of crony corporatism and why it is a very bad thing I have ever heard.
Dizzy Lizzie’s hate for big business I get. I’ve heard her
rants about how the regular folks are getting screwed. But
what’s this about Warren vs. big government? I’d like to
hear about a minute of that schtick just to get my mind
around where she stands.
LIBs are insane. Unfortunately, there are a considerable number of voters who also are insane.
Dem Dream Ticket material right there..................
