Skip to comments.Why Elizabeth Warren should run for president
Posted on 04/25/2014 12:48:40 PM PDT by PJ-Comix
Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren is starting a publicity tour for her new campaign-style book, A Fighting Chance. As she talks to the press, Warren is repeating previous statements that she will not run for president in 2016. But her denials aren't really denials, and her party's unique presidential circumstances give Warren plenty of room to run. Judging by what she has said publicly, there's no reason to rule out a Warren candidacy.
First, the non-denial denials. This week ABC's David Muir asked Warren, "Are you going to run for president?" Warren's response was, "I'm not running for president."
That's the oldest lawyerly evasion in the book. Warren, a former law professor, did not say, "I am not going to run for president." Instead, she said she is "not running," which could, in some sense, be true when she spoke the words but no longer true by, say, later this year.

Cat Fight! Cat Fight! Cat Fight!
It would be entertaining!
She must run. Someone must stand up for the unabashed and unadulterated kook wing of the Democrat Party.
The mere announcement by Warren would cause Hillary to blow a fuse. The Clinton War Room would be running 24/7 to dig up Fauxahontas dirt on her.
Oh look someone Dumber than Nancy Pelosi
We all remember how Hillary was a “lock” in Dec 2007, then some guy from Kenya by way of Chicago snuck in and stole the kishka.
Could happen again.
I think the important indicator is to watch Axlegrease and Plouffy. If they jump in with the Clinton Crime family, Hillary’s good to go. If not, hmmmm.
I think she should run for First Lord of the British Admiralty.
She’s equally qualified (which is: not at all) and its a cooler sounding title AND...
wait for it...
I’m pretty sure that no faux US native American has EVER held the post!
How’s THAT for diversity?
I guess she’s a viable candidate in a world where one’s skin color or gender or cheek bones are more important than one’s actual accomplishments....or the lies told about them.
Elizabeth RunningHare has heard from the Great Spirit and will run swift as the deer for Big Chief to bring all tribes together and to stand firm against the double-tongued pale faces.
My gawd, I cannot think of a more stupid human being in the multiverse. She’d lose an IQ constest with my cat.
Of course, as such, she so very fits your typical liberal politician mold.
Perhaps it’ll be OK should she be elected, because CW-II is most definately assured.
And it’ll be a delight watching MA freeze to death in the dark next winter when we cut the liberal idiots off.
A lot of FReepers felt the Chicago mob was able to blackmail the Clinton Crime Family over Arkancide, preventing them from attacking Obama on the birth cert, etc.
If Fauxcahontas becomes their candidate, it could happen again.
Exactly. It makes me puke to hear people, especially on the “right”, proclaim her inevitable in 2016.
I don’t see her doing it unless Hillary doesn’t.
You're slandering the woman who won the title "Oklahoma's Top High School Debater" LOL
Forget Lezzie Warren, we need that Commie Bernie Sanders to run as an independent!
He was already talking about it. Everyone should flood his email with ..run Bernie run!
“With Clinton 50-plus points ahead of any other potential candidate..”
Now you KNOW this came from a lying leftist.
“She has had a few health scares.”
Not enough, apparently. She is still breathing.
“Clinton has never really excited the most liberal wing of the Democratic Party. They see her as an overcautious centrist like her husband..”
Which illustrates exactly HOW far to the left the Democrat party has moved.
If Warren runs, she can eat up Hillary’s cash. On the other hand she could allow Hillary to position herself as “conservative” - like Lenin compared to Trotsky I suppose.
“This is Warren’s only chance to run.”
Thank God for small favors.
If Warren ran Hillary would collapse IMO.
That's the key to inspiring the Entitlement Army turnout. The VP candidate will be a DeVal Patrick or Cory Booker type with the community organizers "wink winking" to the troops about Hillary's failing health.
Love ya, PJ, but we both know that that simply ain't gonna happen...
