      criticizing the reflexive hillary bashing if there wasn't so much reflexive hillary bashing. funny how that works.

        little bit wrong with a candidate who consistently brings out the absolute worst in both her detractors AND supporters?

        The last few years have been polarizing enough; spending 4-8 years with HRC as President could be even more trying.

        we just don't want a warmongering Wall Streeter regardless of ethnicity, sex, or connections.

        Ever thought of that?

          that you're very much in the minority among democrats.

            among Democrats anymore, I'll take that as the compliment you most certainly didn't intend. :-)

              she has soaring approval ratings among democrats, and swamps all potential opponents for the nomination. which kinda sorta undermines the premise of the post.

              •  But it doesn't obviate primaries (0+ / 0-)

                unless it's in your power to cancel them.  Nor does it eliminate the right of Democrats to consider other candidates, despite the strenuous objections of the FrontPagers.

                Sorry, FrontPagers.  HRC isn't Queen yet.

                  and the polls show that the title of this diary is as much a fantasy as is the idea that a credible progressive alternative exists, much less is interested in running.

                    I've already commented here that Warren knows better than to challenge the Nomenklatura.

                    So f***ing what?

                      than to do something she loathes doing. like running a national campaign.

                      so what? read the title of the post.

                        the battle to reclaim the Democratic Party from Wall Street, its servants, its punkah-wavers, its clients, and its Republicans in Democratic disguise has to begin sometime, and although we're a couple of decades too late, now is better than never.  Of course we'll probably lose this round . . . but if HRC is so inevitable, she won't miss us anyway. ;-)

                        But do keep polishing those gates if it makes you feel good.

                          which, on the federal level, means congress. which just happens to have an election this year, not just 2 1/2 years from now.

                            should be spending so much time talking about HRC. :-) Who isn't even (heh) a candidate. ;-)))

                            And by the way, no, it doesn't start with Congress.  It starts with reconquering the Party at the county level and below, which is already and almost everywhere locked down by the corporatist nomenklatura.

                            Who knows, once we're done, there may still be room in the Party for you somewhere. ;-)))
