    center-right HRC over a Republican. I am a Democrat. Warren doesn't count as the bench if she doesn't run. Brown can't raise the money.

    By contrast, in 2004 you had Dean, Clark, Edwards and Kerry, three of whom could have won the nomination when the voting started.

    In 2008, you had Biden, Edwards, Obama and Clinton, where 2-3 could have won the nomination. And no one ever at any point had more than a 15 point lead in the early polls.

    For 2016, we have O'Malley, Schweitzer, Biden, Brown and Clinton, one of which can win the nomination.

    We mock the GOP clown car, but they usually have the entire spectrum of their party represented. If Warren run changes her mind, I'm there. If not, you will think HRC gave birth to me when you see the enthusiasm in which I support her.

      while Democrats don't always, at least before The Inevitable is crowned when The Inevitable hasn't even made a firm declaration of "running" yet,  is bound to cause some pushback.
      Warren doesn't count as the bench if she doesn't run.

      Until it's too late to declare a candidacy, it's probably too early to say something like that.

      •  She has made it pretty clear. She signed a letter (0+ / 0-)

        of support for HRC.

        The sooner you/we come to grips with this, the less bitter it will be later on. Warren is not not running. Ask Kos.

          No?

           I mean, I applaud your sincerity and all that, but you do seem a bit too emotionally-invested here to be brokering any criticism about your obvious favorite potential candidate.

          •  She is going on a California swing this month. (0+ / 0-)

            Ready for Hillary has raised $2.7. Do you really think she is not running?

            Reality. Based. Community Lunachickie. Open your eyes and don't be naive.

            Go through my comments and you will see that only in the last 4-6 weeks have I accepted that Sen. Warren is not running.
