  •  Elizabeth Warren seems tough, bright and capable (16+ / 0-)

    the people of Massachusetts would be lucky to have her as their Senator. The local issues, however, will be the deciding points for her election in Massachusetts and she has to build a local message and program. If the Democrats lose the majority in the Senate, it is likely she will be powerless, let's hope she doesn't get swallowed up in the "politics as usual" and can make a difference.

    The complete tin-eared, dim-wittedness of the White House's legislative and political operation, coupled with the miserable lack of follow through and follow up on several policy issues, is the primary message I get from this article. It's as if, they have a check list, and once a position is announced and legislatively checked off, then all sense of the need for continuity and implementation is lost. Additionally, the press and messaging operation has been a disaster from the gate.

    I know why the book "Confidence Men" was so roundly assaulted by the White House, because it's true. This article also has the sad and hollow ring of truth about it, as well. The more I learn about this White House and the Senate "leadership," the more committed I am to remaking or breaking the Democratic Party, for without change, it doesn't merit the support of the people.
