  •  i hear you (6+ / 0-)

    in fact, i thought very much the same way about obama in 08, that we had dodged the blue dog bullet and found the one person who could derail the hillary express

    yes, i was a fool

    but the truth is that i still believe that only obama could have stopped hillary

    obama simply turned out to be a fraud

    this time, i can't envision anyone but ewarren beating clinton

    as the diarist mentioned, there is a groundswell of gender support for hillary that will be quite frustrated if clinton is denied a second time by a man

    maybe i'm wrong about this, however

    i would certainly be happy with the policies of sherrod brown or bernie sanders but, frankly, i don't think they could beat hillary

    i agree re: the dangers of personality politics but i'm not so sure about the concerns re: warren's inexperience

    history suggests that evety president is unprepared: success or fsilure is determined far more by character and intelligence and courage

    from what i know, warren meets those requirements

    bearing in mind that i have been fooled before
