You are really comparing Elizabeth Warren to Sarah Palin? Warren DeMontague Jul 2016 #60
Oh, Warren! :-P NurseJackie Jul 2016 #61
I don't think HRC needs a game changer or a hail mary. But Elizabeth Warren is very competent Warren DeMontague Jul 2016 #62
What makes you believe I'm comparing EW to SP? NurseJackie Jul 2016 #63
To say "That's the same type of thinking that resulted in Sarah Palin being chosen" Warren DeMontague Jul 2016 #66

That does mean the voting public will necessarily agree. avaistheone1 Jul 2016 #102
Not sure what you are asking. She will pick someone competent to be Prez if need be. AgadorSparticus Jul 2016 #133
