1. Here's the thing

In lieu of Bernie, Warren would have been a far more viable candidate to win the nomination had she run against Hillary, and far more viable for November too.

4. I think she knows her limitations

While I've no doubt at all she'd be a better candidate in all ways than Sanders, she knows Hillary well enough to be aware of the breadth of Hillary's knowledge/experience/successes.

7. I totally concur.

Besides, she is doing an amazing job and is needed where she is. I really dislike prematurely moving someone who is doing an effective job in the Senate and who could use more time and experience in that position into a Presidential race.

This was one of my initial hesitations with Prez O's candidacy in 2008. I believed that he could use more time and seasoning in the workings of the DC political class before running for President. If he had received this, he might have made fewer missteps, e.g., naming Rahm Emanuel as Chief of Staff and shutting Howard Dean out of the HHS position.

But Obama has been a wonderfully fast learner. His appointment of Hillary as SoS was a stroke of genius, IMO. And he has been a remarkably effective President overall, especially in his second term. He did not receive enough support from Dems at the start of his first term when Dems had majorities in both houses, IMO. I hope that Congressional Dems have learned that very harsh lesson.

6. After the way we saw the GOP go against her in MA's Senate race, I cannot believe...

 

...that Warren would make a better Presidential candidate.

It seems like wishful thinking because Warren appears to be an amalgam between Clinton and Sanders. People tend to forget (or just don't know) that Elizabeth Warren was a Republican well into her 40s. To this day, she refuses to answer whether or not she voted for Ronald Reagan. (If someone won't vote for a candidate who backed the Iraq bill in 2002, how could someone claim to support a Democratic candidate who helped put Reagan into office?) If Clinton is a "Goldwater Girl" for activities as a teenager, what does that make someone like Warren, who can't claim the excuse of being too young to know better, or being influenced by her father's politics?

Warren is a fine Senator, but that doesn't make her automatically Presidential material. I certainly don't consider her as much as expert in a broad range of policies as Clinton is. Warren may not be as one-note as Bernie Sanders is, but she's not quite a full chord just yet.

9. Do you realize that you're in the Hillary Clinton Group, bashing Clinton (i.e., that tired refrain..

...."Goldwater Girl" crap)?

If the republicans were to go after Clinton because of that, or Warren for being "one of them" (remember, they're REPUBLICANS so they won't criticize candidates for being REPUBLICAN supporters in the past!!!), how do you think they'll treat Sanders in a general election when they bring up the fact that Sanders honeymooned in the Soviet Union????????

Please read the SOP of the Hillary Clinton Group. Thanks.

10. I wasn't "bashing Clinton." It's called a hypothetical argument, maybe you've heard of it?

 

I don't have time to teach you how debates or arguments work. I'm pro-Clinton, despite your inability to discern context.

12. I understand that you weren't Clinton-bashing.

Tensions are running very high due to all the hatred being spewed at Hillary and her supporters. This was just a misunderstanding.

We're all on the same side here.

I understand that tensions are running high, with all the disgusting Hillary-hate that is going on here at DU.

I'll also post a reply to CalvinballPro's response to you.

16. I edited my post to state your name properly. If I had known your gender I would have just said

"he" or "she."

It wasn't auto correct. I actually typed in that name. And I remember being careful to spell it right, by capitalizing the "P" in Pro and not leaving a space between carnivall and pro. I also remember making certain to include both "L"s in carnivall, as I thought you had spelled it.

I have NO IDEA what I was thinking, LOL. For some reason, in my mind, I saw carnival. With two Ls. Maybe it was the late hour. Or maybe it was just one of those days.

8. Elizabeth Warren will endorse Hillary and will be of upmost assistance as a member of the Senate.
