    I think health issues
    will keep 2016 wide open for the Dems.  I like Biden/Warrem myself.

      Biden is a stalking horse for Hillary Clinton. Remember you saw it here first - just wait and see.
      Warren is not VP ready, not now maybe not ever. She is an intellectual and an academic, NOT a politician. She would be a disaster as President, but she will be brilliant in the Senate -- we must keep her there.
      NEVER put academics in elective office -- look what happened with Pres. Wilson -- a complete flop; most academics end that way if they go to elective offices.
      Count your blessings with a President H. Clinton and Senator Liz Warren.
      WHAT health issues?  Forget the rumors, devtrash.

        Warren. She is a great progessive, but she's not a natural politician and u kinda need to be in order to win the presidency.

        Great post.  Knocked doors in Boston all fall for Warren but she drove me crazy as a pol -- totally doesn't have the touch, which is all the more discouraging because she is so right and so smart.  Give her some time and we'll see.

        Wrong about Wilson tho -- the high point of early 20th century progressivism on innumerable fronts.  Horrible on race - but, alas, that was not yet really on the agenda for any mainstream pol at the time. But his rep for failure was really over his failure on the League of Nations. Yet his views on foreign policy were so very far ahead of his time that we are still fighting over them: supporting democracy and self-determination vs. realpolitick and imperialism.

        She didn't have a concussion and then a blood clot?
