  •  She's smarter, more articulate (14+ / 0-)

    and tougher than the whole damn bunch.   I want her for our candidate in 2016.  I will not vote for another Barack Obama - no how, no way.  

    What we need is a Democrat in the White House. Warren/Spitzer 2016

    •  The female Woody Guthrie. (11+ / 0-)

      Woody was born a poor Okie.  He never received Warren's education since he grew up back in the 20s and 30s, but he was brilliant nonetheless.  He gained considerable show business success, but his values and plain way of speaking never changed.

      At the same time, Warren has never lost the sense of her roots, just like Woody.  She's rightfully achieved status as a Harvard Law prof, but she's never changed her way of speaking nor her values.

      Woody and Liz, along with Will Rogers, have an ability to communicate in a direct and honest manner.  If you remember the Jim Carrey movie "Liar, Liar," these three Oklahomans seem to bear the "curse" of being unable to tell a lie even when telling the truth is to their detriment in a society where lying is what is required to "get by."

      Her plainspoken manner is quite dangerous.  Warren can bridge the gap between those who hate the current system "from the right" and those who hate it "from the left."  Both "sides" are being screwed, but their cultural differences are used to divide them to the benefit of the 1%.

      Sing the song, Liz!
