Warren is far left...

Biden is much more moderate and I'm guessing has a better chance against Trump

Biden can't win the nomination because he isn't crazy enough. 

But were he to pull it off, he'll perform worse than Hillary...  they already are keeping him from appearances to limit his gaffs. 

 

What's going to happen when Trump outworks Biden, the way he did Hillary?

21,000 attended supposedly but it was in New York City. To myself, that does not seem all that impressive. Now, if she drew 21K in a place with a population between 100k and 300k, then that is interesting.

Image result for Elizabeth Warren attacks corporate greed in front of biggest crowd yet

 

 

 

In front of a cheering crowd of more than 20,000 people, Warren regaled the crowd about corporate America's misdeeds, calling for more accountability. 

"You will never get it with this corrupt administration."

 

Watching that enthusiastic crowd, I realized something... Warren can win.

Presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren spoke before thousands of people gathered in Washington Square Park in New York on Monday evening, using a pivotal moment of her campaign to paint a vivid and at times gruesome picture of corruption -- and the history of women, specifically, who have fought back.

"We’re not here today because of famous arches or famous men. In fact, we’re not here because of men at all. We’re here because of some hard-working women," said Warren, the only female candidate holding a top spot in the polls, as she stood before the iconic arch in the park named after America’s first president, George Washington.

It was, by campaign estimates, Warren’s largest campaign event yet. Approximately 21,000 people attended, the campaign said, and 23,000 sent an RSVP. The New York Police Department and the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation did not report a crowd count and could not confirm the Warren campaign's estimates.

Warren pledged she would do the selfie line despite the crowd, telling supporters, "Some things you just don't mess with." By the time it wrapped up, the line lasted just under four hours.

The candidate used the rally to focus on the tale of "one of the worst industrial disasters in American history," the Triangle Shirtwaist factory fire that killed 146 women in 1911, just blocks from the park where Warren spoke, and described in painstaking detail the "sickening thud" of bodies that hit the ground as women jumped from windows of the factory, realizing they’d been locked in "by bosses afraid that the workers might steal scraps of cloth."

"Their blood ran into the gutters," Warren said.

The century-old tragedy, Warren argued, connected to her 2020 message of tackling corruption in Washington.

"Business owners got richer, politicians got more powerful and working people paid the price. Does any of that sound familiar?" Warren asked the crowd.

At times, she directly linked recent American deaths to money spent by corporations.

"Americans are killed by floods and fires in a rapidly warming planet. Why? Because huge fossil fuel corporations have bought off our government," she said.

"I know change is possible -- and I know it, because America has made big, structural changes before," Warren said, connecting her speech back to "the day of the fire" and the change that was made in labor laws.

"And Democrats can’t win if we’re scared and looking backward,” she said. “We win when we meet the moment. We win when we stand up for what is right. We win when we get out there and fight. I am not afraid. And you can't be afraid, either.”

What do you do to attack "corporate greed"? It is a vague platitude. It is meaningless. I would say she should address government corruption before worrying about the private sector. Pot calling kettle black.

I'm not attending any rallies.  But given the chance I'd vote for her enthusiastically.  And I send her money.  Maybe rallies are more of a Trump supporter type thing.

Warren would need a much more Liberal Congress than we're likely to see in 2020 to accomplish a tiny piece of what she wants to do.  Her promise is to fight for what is right, and that's where you start.

 

You don't fight for what's right by launching false claims about companies that cause people to have a poorer understanding of issues.  That's what she's doing lately because she believes that rhetoric will yield campaign success.  Whether (despite the firebrand rhetoric) she would actually support decent and effective policy once in office or not is a bit of a different question.  If I were to bet on it, I think she would ultimately support more moderate and effective policy rather than radical and disruptive policy.  But that's a guess.  I can't be sure.  The more vitriolic her anti-private sector rhetoric gets, the less sure I am.

Warren is a poster child for greed. Her calling anyone else out on it is hilarious.

 

Second, if the woman had her way she'd destroy our economy with the crap she says.
