The Boston Globe and MoveOn.org are calling for Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren to run for president. No surprise.
Last October, right here on ExZoom, we predicted Warren would become the next Democrat candidate for president; not Hillary Clinton. Things are falling into place now that Clinton has been embroiled in an email controversy leaked by her own side.
Students, in [Al] Franken’s words, think she’s a “rock star.” Yes. A rock star, like that other famous one sitting in the White House, who thinks bootstrap individualism and free market principles are oppressive and so ‘yesterday.’ [snip]
Things are bad enough as they are without someone in office who thinks you work for the government first and yourself second. Electing Elizabeth Warren as president would be declaring war on people who work for a living.
We don’t need to elect her to know what will happen should she hold any kind of executive power. Just look at the wonderful economy and society they’ve built in Venezuela. That’s Warren’s model.
Yet, progressives are enamored with the senator. The Globe’s editorial board is begging Warren to “not shrink from the chance to set the course for the Democratic Party or cede that task to Hillary Clinton without a fight.”
MoveOn pleads for the same:
That’s why MoveOn.org members voted in December to launch Run Warren Run, a major effort to highlight the immense grass-roots support that exists for Senator Warren’s vision, and to show her that if she runs, she’ll have the support she needs. We’ve been joined by other major progressive groups like Democracy for America and, most recently, the Working Families Party.
Who on the Republican side could win against an Elizabeth Warren? Not an easy question to answer.
