    Let's say that both are still senators........If the two of them would run in a primary, based on what we know of Obama and what we know of Warren, who would you vote for?

    For me an easy vote for Warren.

    •  she is more Progressive (0+ / 0-)

      and more passionate about it.
      He's more pragmatic less of an idealist, I think.

      •  He is far, far more conservative. (0+ / 0-)

        He himself has said that on economics he'd be a mainstream, 1980s Republican. Google it.

        NO ONE should be able to make the lives of a classroom full of children depend on her own ability to make the right call.

        •  I don't need to google it (0+ / 0-)

          I said she was more Progressive than he was. That doesn't preclude any degree of how conservative Obama is except that he is more so, by definition, than she.

          What I said does not contradict your point.

          •  He isn't "pragmatic." (0+ / 0-)

            And the difference between the two of them isn't that she's more progressive. The difference is that he is not progressive at all. He is a right-wing ideologue on economics who admits to being a 1980s Republican.


            He has also endorsed and expanded every single Bush-Cheney abuse of the Constitution and civil rights, the Bush-Cheney oil-drilling policy, the Bush Iraq war timetable and more.

            With the exception of Obama's Supreme Court nominees, the third and fourth terms of George Bush would not have been worse. At least the House and Senate Democrats would not have lost their spines.

            NO ONE should be able to make the lives of a classroom full of children depend on her own ability to make the right call.

            •  I disagree in "difference is not that she's more (0+ / 0-)

              I view conservatism and progressivism as a continuum, as many people do.
              So to be more conservative or more progressive than someone else points only in a DIRECTION not an absolute.

              IT is valid to say that she is more progressive than he. It is also true that he is more conservative than she. They both are true in that common paradyme. I was not wrong.

              •  Sure you were. (0+ / 0-)

                When you say she is more progressive, you are saying that they are both progressive, she's just more progressive.

                You might as well say she's more progressive than Mitch McConnell.

                So let me amend that. Your statement is either wrong or meaningless.

                What we need is a Democrat in the White House.
