The Observer has the editorial Warren to Run for Re-election, Will Continue to Sell Out Progressives.
Then the 2016 Democratic primaries happened.
Warren’s name was one of several floated as potential contenders for the Democratic presidential nomination. Emails released by WikiLeaks revealed the Clinton campaign was worried Warren would enter the race, and noted that Clinton met with Warren before the primaries began.
Despite Bernie Sanders’ emergence as a viable contender against Clinton, Warren refrained from endorsing the Vermont Senator. The move would have served an important boost to Sanders, who had the odds stacked against him by the Democratic establishment. Though Sanders won over 46 percent of the vote, he received a small fraction of the Democratic Party’s super delegates and only one major newspaper endorsement, from the Seattle Times.
I am surely going to want to remember this article.
Elizabeth Warren beat Scott Brown because he turned out to be nothing but an empty suit. He frequently waited to make a political decision until after he was sure his vote didn’t matter. If you look at the Presidential primary process and then the no-DAPL movement, Elizabeth Warren has learned how to be any empty suit, too. That’s decidedly not what I voted for.
Now that I know for sure what she is, I won’t be voting for her again. Political betrayal has political consequences. That’s the only way deterrence works. They didn’t believe us when we said we wouldn’t vote for Hillary. Well now they know that was not an idle threat.
This makes me think of the Starkist Tuna commercials of the 1970’s.
Sorry, Elizabeth, we don’t need politicians who talk well, we want politicians who lead well.
