    It's pretty well known among politicos that the slimy machine here and in Washington, including Schumer, have been convincing people NOT to donate to the present candidates.   She has to know that.  It's not sitting well with a lot of people who have put time, energy and money into other candidates.   She'll have some work to do to get the most active Dems - the ones who actually do the ground work - on board.   I'm not one bit happy that she seems to think that all she needs to do is meet with power brokers and she's got the nomination in the bag.  

    I don't know any of the rank and file who'd be inspired to do the ground work for her.  At this point, I think she, Washington, and the Mass Dems have dissed the people they count on to phone bank, canvass, GOTV, etc.   I'm not doing it for her.  Hope Schumer, Walsh, Kerry, etc have their walking shoes ready and cell phones charged.

      She's never struck me as this type of person - I get the impression that she'd much rather be meeting with ordinary voters and not the 'power brokers', but it's smart to talk with the pols first.  If she does get in, I think she'll meet as many people as she can.

      Elizabeth Warren is a heroine for the middle class, and anything I can do to keep her in public life is worth it.  She'll be getting my Obama money if she runs.

      •  Then why doesn't she meet with ordinary people? (0+ / 0-)

        Blue Mass Group was the wrong place to start.  She should have been in front of Fenway Park shaking hands.  She's had plenty of opportunities and just hasn't been out there.  I'm here and I'm sorry, but it's the truth.  All of the other candidates are out meeting voters daily.   Where is she?
