Warren is the one to challenge Sanders. Lets put them up, side by side,

for the nation to see.

There is a con here, and the American public needs the chance to see, for real choice.

(I get we are waiting a couple more weeks to see how things shake out, and I think we need to wait a couple weeks. I am just jumping ahead so people can consider. I am not even bothered with a brokered convention if that is where this takes us.).

Democratic Party, our Democratic base, our candidates get behind Warren, the strong arm of who we are. Let us remember Pelosi and her fight the last two years. We should have had a woman President in 2016. Lets have one in 2020.

Sanders whole self is in hypocrisy and hypocrisy is never a win. His words when they suit him, and when they don't, he goes 180. There is not even a consideration of the ridiculous that we are suppose to accept.

I would be a hypocrite to run in the Democratic Party with all I have said. To...
I will release my medical records before a first vote, that is the only fair thing to do.

I really think seeing Warren this last week that she is the one.

I am not going to argue or try to convince anyone. I was elsewhere on the internet and saw some people I have known for a lot of years fall into the koolaid. It is what it is. I will die soon, so life is experiences. But it would be a wonderful opportunity for progression too, and righting the wrong of Trumps ego self running the nation.

1. Warren on the debate stage was too weak to challenge Sanders. Where was her attack when he was right

2. Warren did challenge him on stage as much a Biden jab with a chuckle.

There are four others that have done much less than Warren when it comes to Sanders. Yesterday Warren both put out Sanders needed to release his medical records and then later stated she was not running to yell at people but to get stuff done.

Again, more than the other four candidates.

Why are you expecting Warren to do ALL the heavy lifting while dismissing the heavy lifting she is doing?

3. I agree, and believe she could unite the party, something I do not have confidence that Sanders can

do, but unless she can get some traction, it is going to be an uphill battle breaking through Sanders base

She has a tough challenge

I think she has a better chance with the Amy, Biden, and Pete block than the Sanders block

4. Sanders actively and for five decades has worked to divide the Democratic Party.

In the last five years Sanders has in our face burned bridges. This isn't my doing, but all Sanders. He hires people that vocally stated they voted against HRC, our first woman President. Pretty much slapping me in the face. I really do not forget the few people that slap me up across the face then demand my loyalty and vote. No. That would be embracing the abusive. I am old. I do not do that. It is stupid to me.

Think about switching to Elizabeth for the good work of the party and the defeat of Trump.
