    my hunch is that she is too identified with the Occupy/inequality ideas to make it through the 'Pub acid bath. Obama was (and is) a centrist, let's-get-everybody's-input fellow, which is a better place to start.

    •  Liz Warren is not a radical. (3+ / 0-)

      She's a Populist, and there's a very big difference there. She's pretty much mainstream, knowing full well how the system works and how it's supposed to work.
          In other words, she is coming from within the system and wanting the system to work well and work right. This is for the benefit of all, including, but not limited to, those who are presently getting screwed.

        good, but not pragmatic.

        I like Warren, don't misunderstand.

        But, she doesn't have the administrative (Governor) experience (don't forget, The President was the first senator elected in a long time), or the long history in elected politics and all those hard knocks.  

        She's not radical, but she's perceived that way.

        To get that female glass ceiling broken, pragmatism should be the first line of thinking.  

        That's just my opinion.

          with people.
             There was a quality we saw in him which transcended all of the mundane considerations. It's charisma, yes, but it's also the quality of inspiring trust in others.
             Elizabeth Warren has that quality as well. It's why so many people encouraged her to run. It's why she's got a nice lead already on Scott Brown this early on, even before she's officially nominated.
             Actually, Liz has got this quality even more than Barack Obama did. She's got a genuineness about her that you rarely see in politicians, and she's got that spark too, which the president possesses (in abundance).
             This Nation is ready for a woman president. Hillary Clinton could step up right now and do it, but she's neither got the timing on her side now, nor the fire in the belly which she had so much of 4 years ago. But four years from now, Elizabeth Warren could well be ready.
             There are other terrific Democratic women, Kathleen Sebelius being one of them, Barbara Boxer, Janet Napalitano, Kirstin Gillebrand (Not Jennifer Granholm though because she was born in Canada), but none of these women (IMHO) carry the potential for a successful run (except Hillary) that Elizabeth Warren does.
