    Sanders is pretty intellectual.

    I've been a performer all my life and as a stage act I would certainly prefer to follow Sanders more than Warren. Gut feel I think maybe it's that she has more emotional traction with people.

      But she has said she ain't gonna run, and Sanders says he might...but suddenly it's like Sanders has been flushed down the memory toilet.

       This is strange.  I mean really, really strange.  The progressive candidate who says they might run is far more likely to run than the one who says they won't...and by definition more likely to actually win.

      I honestly don't think the Warren for President crowd care about a progressive winning, they just want to sound really progressivy to their friends and family.  If they wanted to win, they'd support the candidate who might run, rather than the one that isn't.

      (ironically the same thing that hurt her a bit in MA, where it made her sound like an outsider).

      as is her biography. classic presidential run stuff.

      no idea if she will, but she's got a lot going for her. attracting a decent staff, high level endorsements, and cranking out a huge # of small donations would be the next big hurdles to be a credible candidate.
