Skip to comments.Elizabeth Warren for President?

It was one of those important-but-dull Senate hearings that dont get broadcast even on C-SPAN 3.
An obscure subcommittee was taking expert testimony on patient safety Thursday, and only four of its 14 members bothered to show up. Several of the public seats were empty, too.
But Elizabeth Warren was in her element.
The committees most junior member was the first senator to arrive, five minutes early, and when it was her turn to question the witnesses she blew past the time limit. It was as though she were back at Harvard Law School, using the Socratic method to lead students to her desired conclusions in favor of stricter standards for hospitals and prescriptions.
Dr. Jha? . . . Okay, good, and Dr. Gandhi wants to add to that? . . . Dr. Pronovost, you want to get into this? . . . Okay, so weve got payment responsibility. Very powerful. Dr. Disch? . . . What would be the next step? . . . Finish your sentence.
A draft-Warren boomlet is underway, with the purpose of encouraging her to challenge Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination in 2016. It is eerily similar to the movement that propelled Barack Obama to challenge Clinton eight years ago even though, like Warren, Obama had then served not quite two years in the Senate. But while Warren is a compelling figure a feisty populist at a time of inequality and resentment her actions since arriving in the Senate suggest she has neither interest in nor aptitude for a presidential candidacy.

I don’t discount this. A nothing coming from nowhere? We’ve been through this before.
Sucks to be the poster child for the demented.
Yeah. Warren for President. Two braindead presidents in a row. That’ll be “historical”.
Warren has one serious problem...no enthusiasm in speeches. From maybe three of her speeches that I’ve seen...she’s nowhere near the class of Clinton or Obama. I should add since becoming a Senator....she hasn’t accomplished anything noteworthy...and she’s not a minority (unless you count the 1/16th in her as American-Indian).
We are living under the reign of a fake American, why not a fake Indian (excuse me ... I mean fake native american).
Yup. Another novelty freak.
Yes. A drumbeat for someone no one knows, except enough to know she’s been disgraced publicly for her dishonest biography.
That won’t matter. People will be told she is a compelling figure and they’ll nod their heads in agreement. Hillary is the smartest woman in the world. Obama is Peace Prize material. Michelle is just like Jackie O.
This stuff doesn’t work on me, so I assume it doesn’t work on anyone. Then you listen to people jabbering in the next booth at Denny’s, you look at who’s in line with you at the voting booth, and you realize that this stuff is as effective as it needs to be.
Lefty’s love Warren.
And they are so truly ignorant they don’t even know about her fraudulently (and racistly) pretending to be Indian so she would fall under affirmative action hiring.
Obama got the full black vote which is part of how he won, twice.
Does anyone seriously see blacks voting for Warren like that? Or Moderate women?
I don’t see it. So far.
And that's hard to pull off.
Lying cow who claims ancestry falsely, gets caught, and still gets a seat in politics..
Yeah, I can see her getting into office the same way, fraud and stupidity.
I think her alleged distance from the media described by the author has to do with money rather than diffidence. Warren probably sees that Hillary has the money and the IOUs from the party establishment all monopolized and an Obama style upstart probably would have no chance this time around with the insiders who provide the indispensable funds.
This one is as nuts as Sheila Jackson-Lee and so far left she thinks Stalin was a conservative.
The CPUSA member from MA needs to make a case to capture the rest of that demographic.
nothing moderate about Warren
I am not sure Hillary is even going to run
If there’s a lefty “draft Warren” movement, there needs to be an immediate “vet Warren” movement on behalf of conservatives. Dig out her past before they think to lock it all away. Obama got lucky, in that he hit the big time before anyone thought to check him out, and we can all see the result. Now is the time to find out who Warren is, what she’s done, and the people she’s associated with, and catalog it carefully.
No offense.....but, heck! Look at Obama! What the heck did he do? He came out of left field! :)
