Trump got A LOTTT of nonstop publicity with his rhetoric from the media even while spending less. Let's not overlook that. Lots of independents also despised Hillary. Warren is not despised anywhere close to Hillary or Trump by independents.

Agreed. At least for now.

I freaking don't know. But, as an older and experienced political observer, the alarm bells are ringing. Massachusetts intellectual. Disconnect.....I just don't see it.

I'd almost hope that Biden comes back. He or Bernie have a chance. Warren, although there's much to like, will have a hard time connecting with regular folks.

Please convince otherwise.

But she waited tables when she was 13.

Nah, she would've already announced her decision to run again by now...besides, she had her chance and blew it. She's done. Democrats won't vote for her in the primaries.

Itís basically like Siri. You cant ask it a contextual question and get a conscious answer. Itís programmed to respond to a given topic with predetermined material. A chart, a graph, a link, a gif, a slogan.

If you dont know its origins it almost sounds like a real person controlling the account. But itís actually bot, not a human.

Just FYI.

kinda funny shit, but he does stray from his posting 'style' a little. At least he's not using colored text.

I've talked w/ him. Seems like an OK dude.

She's super arrogant and full of herself. I have no doubt she thinks in her mind, she should be able to throw herself back in the mix and compete.

I mean, if she's going to talk shit like that, put up or shut up.

I don't know much about Warren's "platform" I don't pay much attention to the meat and potatoes of the campaign's sales tactics until the year of.

Does anybody care to briefly and objectively highlight what it is she wants to do? I can't trust journalism anymore to find out

Well the crux of it is:

Take any given issue. Her solution is to make herself and other career politicians in Washington “The Deciders” of right and wrong, fair and unfair, on all matters, instead of the actual people involved in the issue, wherever in the country that may be.

Whether it’s a huge chunk of the public vs a particular bank, or two guys arguing in a little shop about baking a wedding cake... Warren wants to be your Decider.

her pitch is pretty much as follows. she wants to fight back against corruption in washington, reform the system so it "works for everyone, and not just the 1%", "work towards" a path to medicare for all, forgive student debt, get money out of politics, and tax the uber rich harder to pay for her left wing policies. she's somewhere between sanders and biden on the spectrum - leaning more towards sanders. she's basically bernie-lite. she wants reform as opposed to a 'revolution'.
