I emboldened (bolded ?) that last line as it most agrees with why I have a hard time settling for a candidate I don’t like because they appear less harmful than the other. For some this is really a primary election concern as they put it away for the general and get behind their parties candidate even is behind closed doors they know they don’t have what we need. Elizabeth Warren is in a better place to shape both the primary and general elections policy messaging than Jeb Bush, Rand Paul, or Hilary Clinton. In the economic sphere, to be more specific. For whatever reasons her bully pulpit really grabs our attention. Heck she might even force some positive changes in the pacific trade deal.
Time to fight, be a little less inclined to settle. Push, prod and cajole. Party planks can make all the difference. Give the indy’s something to get behind, rather than merely oppose the GOP.
Says What She Really Thinks
Anyone hoping for Warren to call out President Obama by name over a controversial trade pact was disappointed. But she did make caustic remarks about the deal, saying it would benefit multinational corporations and “leave American workers in the dirt.”
And she made abstract attacks on those who place politics above principle, comments that could be seen as indirect criticism of White House leadership on some core Democratic causes.
“When we stand together, when we make it clear what we believe in, America is ready to stand with us,” Warren told the rapt crowd at the Anaheim Convention Center. “This isn’t just about politics. It’s about values.”
Later, she added, “We don’t win what we don’t fight for.”
