What if Elizabeth Warren Votes "Yes" on Syria?

I LOVE her. I'm more excited about her than I was with Dean. I think she would make a MAGNIFICENT president. But if she votes "yes" on this debacle, I'm sorry, it's a deal breaker.

What do others think?

1. This is a great test to see who she really is

100% Agree if she votes for war, I would never vote for her for higher office.

4. I will wait to hear her reasoning before I bail on her.

I'm not totally up on Syria, but I do trust her judgement and motivation.

I'm not aware of anyone except Howard who has our interests at heart and could make a viable run.

6. Given what I know about her, I'd *probably* think

that the plan was OK, rather than that Warren is not OK. She has enough of a track record for me to feel that she's very smart, she's a good person, and she's looking out for the 99%.

I think that sometimes it's reasonable to use military force, if it's done thoughtfully and for the right reasons (to reduce human suffering in the larger picture).

8. Eleanor Roosevelt thought so too.


I know that Ms. Warren would make a well informed and thoughtful decision.


I don't have to agree with everything that the person I support does or think.


I do have to agree with the way that the person makes the decisions.


It astonishes me that some people would be willing to abandon such a gifted thinker and support someone else who might be a lot more superficial, including the fact that the voted against intervention in Syria simply on the basis of positioning for a primary campaign, rather than choose the person who they think is more intelligent and more honest with their thinking.

9. Raytheon makes Tomahawks. Raytheon is based in Mass.

There will be a lot of pressure for Mass senators not to stop the Syrian action.

10. There are no candidates in the primaries I can support

if she does this. This really is make or break for her. Her potential supporters for a primary run are not war friendly. Frankly if Dean intends on running again, siding with Obama on this is a huge mistake for the exact same reason. Hardly anyone who voted for him in 04, is enthusiastic about this war. Being against a war of choice, was 80% of his appeal.
