Warren: I'm not running for President.

It must be the Republicans turn at the oval office.

1. It is my mission to change her mind.
Because you are right, the Democrats will not successfully elect Hillary Clinton because her true nature is apparent to millions of us. We see the harm her husband did to the American working class.

2. I am sure about Hillary, but
not about Warren.

Hillary has more baggage than Louis Vuitton, all of which will be dredged up again if she runs, as will all of Bill's pecadillos, real and imagined. And now, we can add Benghazi.

So much for Republicans, the religous vote that is not Republican (yet) and some Indies. Many Democrats I know are saying that they won't even LOTE vote for her. Easy to say now, so I don't know what they will actually do when faced with a voting machine. (As if the voting machine cares what they do anyway.)



But, reading Warren's wiki made me uneasy, as have other things.

I don't know what is going on.

Yes, she raises good points during televised hearings. And that ain't nutthin. Something has to push back against the professional political dialogue in this country besides Sanders. Nonetheless, I am uneasy about her being President. .

You can try to change her mind, if you wish, but, if the die is cast for Hillary, as it was for Obama in 2007-08, you may be spinning your wheels.

Given what Shrum, Shields, Dean and so many others on TV have been saying, it seems to me the die has indeed been cast. No one hardly mentions Biden, even, let alone saying the situation is still wide open.

IMO, it's up to Hillary's health at this point. If she is alive and can manage even to appear healthy in 2016, the nom is hers. (No one in power will care if she actually is healthy, as long as she looks that way. They'd probably just as soon have Bill pulling the strings anyway. He has a track record. Devil you know and all that.)

Warren is 64 now. Hillary is 66. If Hillary can run at 67, maybe Warren can run at 68? Reagan was 69 when he ran, wasn't he. He probably was in the early stages of Alzheimers, then, but that hasn't seemed to bother anyone, including the Democrats who worship at his feet. McCain ran at around that age.

Of course, then, she may be running then against a Republican incumbent, which would make it much more difficult. Especially if the Republican incumbent or V.P. is female. Otherwise, she may even get Republican women to vote for her.

3. As much as I like Warren, my objective
would be to make certain that Hillary is not our candidate in 2016. She is an unapologetic Third Way Democrat, a Republican, in all but title.

4. No argument on Hillary. Not from me, anyway.
