I trust this woman

I’ve been a fan of Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) for a number of years. From the first time I heard her speak, I’ve felt she was the real McCoy — intelligent, strong, and not afraid to stand up to anyone in Washington. (I’m also proud to say she’s from Oklahoma City, as am I.)

I’ve worked hard to avoid all the political speeches this year from people I don’t like, don’t trust, don’t believe, and am sick of hearing from. But this is a relatively short statement from someone I do trust, and it left me cheering. She, not Hillary, should be the Democratic nominee.

I’m still wondering why the media gave Donald Trump a free ride for so many months. Had they done some responsible investigative reporting when he first announced his candidacy, the Republicans and the country probably wouldn’t be listening to his rantings now.

My thanks to Jim Wheeler for finding this at FiftyFourandAHalf. It’s worth repeating.

  1. Perhaps Hillary should get down on her knees and beg her to share the ticket for VP. I’ve always liked this woman since first seeing her a few years back,she’s not afraid to look the truth in the eye. Make a damned fine President of the United States of America. Probably bring some credibility back to the country at the same time!

    • I’d like to see her on the ticket, but Clinton might not want her sharing the spotlight when the first woman president is elected. Or might think an all-female ticket would repel some voters. On the other hand, she’s played the gender card so often that maybe another woman is the perfect choice. And it could help launch Warren’s presidential campaign in 2020, if she wanted to run.

      • From what I hear, they’ve been meeting/talking. I’d love to see Warren to nose-to-nose with Trump, but unfortunately, that wouldn’t be the match-up in debates. I have concerns that a lot of America isn’t ready for a both a female President and Vice President… but Hillary and Warren together would really do some severe damage to Trump.

        • Of the two women, I think Warren would shred Trump. Clinton not so much because she’s so scripted. I agree, one woman at a time. Warren can run when Clinton’s done. Trump’s doing a pretty good job of burying himself … but I’m not sure how many voters get that, or care. And that worries me, a lot.

        • Slowly I think more people are catching on to Trump. He may have been a “breath of fresh air” away from the politicians, but after they’ve listened long enough, they’ve started seeing the bullshit. I also have a feeling that a lot of people that follow him are actually going to go out and vote for him. Not sure why I think that, but I do.

        • That’s exactly what I’m afraid of … a lot of ill-informed, angry voters voting for an ill-informed, angry candidate. I hope enough of his followers will realize what a wingnut he truly is and back away before November. I don’t want to see half of America googling “What kind of president will Trump be?” the day after the election.

    • It strikes me as a fair assessment. Warren has been going after Wall Street bigtime, and they need going after. Banking regulations need to be strengthened to prevent the abuses we’ve seen in the last decade. And I agree that Hillary isn’t likely to want a VP who might outshine her and/or undercut her position with her Wall Street backers.

        • To be honest, I had to google the name. I don’t really know anything about her but have a lot of respect for our female senators as a group. It takes gumption to get into the old white boys club in the first place, and a tough, smart woman to stay and work there.

          But, as with Warren, I think another woman on the ticket would lose more votes than it gained.

        • Oops, I guess I missed that little (R) thing after her name. A woman v.p. would be a smart countermove for Trump, as long as it isn’t Sarah Palin. It needs to be someone more moderate, I think.

          Can’t see Hillary picking Sanders, or him agreeing to it, but if it would consolidate the two camps, it would be good for the Dems.
