Progressive wing waves Elizabeth Warren banner
The Boston Globe ^ | December 16, 2013 | Noah Bierman

WASHINGTON — Elizabeth Warren has pledged she will not seek the White House in 2016, but that has not stopped diehard Warren boosters from promoting her political profile in presidential primary states, saying she is best positioned to push the Democratic Party to the left.

A group called Progressive Change Campaign Committee is waging the most visible of these pro-Warren crusades, training volunteers, meeting with labor leaders in New Hampshire, and handing out stickers with Warren’s name.

But there are costs to party unity, as the Massachusetts senator becomes a central figure in an intensifying battle for the Democratic Party’s soul.

TOPICS: Politics/Elections; US: Massachusetts
KEYWORDS:
The Democratic Party is no monolith either. The left wing of the party wants Senator Warren to go on the warpath against the right winger Hillary.

It looks like Hillary is going to need a bigger hammer and sickle. The DemocRATS have gone by Stalin in their goosestep to the left. The extremist DemocRATS will be pimping their new White Indian Princess, Rising Star.

That means there could be a Clinton/Warren ticket (to Hell).

I think even the Dems are getting a little tired of throwing awards, and honorary degrees and free t-shirt portraits at Hillary and her Husband Billy Jeff. They want the Clintons in the game, but don’t want them necessarily in the top candidate position during an election year. Fauxcahontas might mean what she’s saying about not interested. Time will tell. I don’t even think Hillary is truly intending to run, she wants the power of a KingMaker or kind of a Soros in a frumpy pantsuit wearing rounded down heels.

If the GOP does not get its act together I am going to register Dem just to vote for the Indian Princess in the primaries. If my vote is wasted in the Republican world I will at least make it count elsewhere.

If Obama is not far enough to the left for these liberals, they must be completely out of touch with reality.

The Democrat News Network (CNN) said yesterday that she is “rising star”

Let's take this little gem apart:

“We’re going to make sure that every Democrat who runs for president is forced to say whether they agree with Elizabeth Warren on key issues, like expanding Social Security benefits and more Wall Street reform,” said Adam Green, the 37-year-old cofounder of the group.

"Forced", ah yes. Spoken like a true Stalinist.

"expanding Social Security benefits" from a system that is already beginning to run deficits. You guys slay me ...

"more Wall Street reform", oh ok: Dodd-Frank on steroids. But I'm sure that 'Rat-favored firms (Goldman Sachs and others) will get their carve-outs.

"Adam Green, the 37-year-old cofounder of the group." You do realize, Adam, that if get your way, there will be no Social Security benefits for anyone when you're old enough to collect.

But of course, that won't apply to you if you're part of the nomenklatura, which becoming part of is no doubt is your real end game.

Please Phauxcahontas, do run.

She is so staggeringly unappealing, a wheelchair-bound circus midget would beat her in a landslide in the general election.

I am always amazed at how the “unbiased” media will uncritically label the left what they want to be called while namecalling conservatives

What this twit from the People’s Republic of Massachusetts does or doesn’t do is of no interest to anyone with a working brain.

I was watching South park the other day and one episode they had a “a real honest to goodness Native amercian” come to speak to the kids in class, and this red haired white guy with glasses walks in wearing a feather in his head “Well I’m 1/16th native American” LOL. It’s Elizabeth Warren!

That's what everyone here said about Obama 6 years ago. We're dealing with millions of LIVs and undocumented Democrats. She'd probably win.

Just like Lyndon Johnson’s rule that you don’t count your votes until you know how many you need, you shouldn’t use every 1/128th of ancestry until you’re sure there’s not another Democratic special interest group out there.

They’re not waving her banner so much as sending up smoke signals.

This is all a sham designed to make Mrs. Clinton look like a normal, reasonable person.

Go for it! The jackasses have won countless elections with the exact strategy in reverse. They fund phony conservative or third-party candidates to split the GOP vote.

“I am going to register Dem just to vote for the Indian Princess in the primaries.”

The trouble with political jokes is sometimes they get elected.

Can you say, “President Warren”?
