Elizabeth Warren shows what she's made of

As you watch each of the Democratic candidates, this question looms: How would she or he fare in a debate with Donald Trump?

My conclusion after seeing Senator Elizabeth Warren in CNN’s Monday town hall meeting in Mississippi: She’d clean his clock. Warren is smarter, better informed, and every bit as tough. And given how much of Trump’s case for reelection is based on false premises, Potemkin Village pretensions, and outright lies, she’d take him to town.

...With Warren, who at this stage of the campaign is vying with Vermont’s Bernie Sanders, the other question is this: Would she be a better, more effective, and connective candidate than Sanders? There too, I think she made important impressionistic progress with her town hall performance.

...Some are already putting the Massachusetts senator on the politically endangered list because she’s trailing Sanders in New Hampshire, a neighboring make-or-break state for both of them. It’s far too early for that, however.

As we saw in Massachusetts when Warren first burst upon on the scene, she is talented and substantive, with a certain wonkish charisma about her. As others have noted, she’s emerged as the policy-proposing pace-setter in a very large field. From her plan for a tax on the total assets of the exceedingly wealthy to her call to break up big tech companies, to her proposal for universal child care and for spending billions on housing, she has defined her candidacy in a way that lets everyone know what she’s about.

And that’s not a bad place to be at this stage in the campaign.

1. I'm so glad her amazing intellect is on our side She's one of my favorites.

 

Her wealth tax really does it for me, best policy I've heard maybe forever - so smart, so useful, so needed.

3. I also really like...

 

Her position to require corporate boards to provide a board position for a worker elected by the workers.

And the consumer protection bureau was golden... until trump gutted it, but it can be restored.

4. I don't think we should debate him....

 

He will just lie. Then lie about his lies. He will slander, and smear, and belittle. Let him do all that on twitter.

There is nothing to be gained by giving him a platform he can easily manipulate.
