Activists Still Trying to Draft Elizabeth Warren for 2016 Run

A group trying to draft Senator Elizabeth Warren to run for president in 2016 launched a website Tuesday, with plans to use a national gathering of influential liberal activists later this week to gain more publicity and recruit additional members.

The fledgling effort is another sign that liberal activists will continue to float a possible campaign, despite Warren’s persistent denials that she will run.

Erica Sagrans, a 31-year-old who grew up in Cambridge, said she is the group’s campaign manager, a position that she hopes will become paid once the group forms a committee and begins raising money.

    Finally. A real chance for our first Native-American president.

    I'm holding out for our first minstrel show black.

    She scares me. I think she is not simply an empty suit or a slimy opportunist, she's a true believer. Without the proper checks she has it in her to outdo Mao in the number of people murdered and Pol Pot in the percentage of the population murdered.

    I would not be that concerned, the US bureaucracy is so firmly entrenched it does not matter who becomes president, the outcomes would be the same, Rand Paul, Clinton, Warren, Reagan, George Washington it would not matter who was president, they would have as much meaningful power as the Queen of England has today.

    Good point about the bureaucracy. My fear of a Warren Presidency is about the legion of new dumbfucks she will create by using her bully pulpit to convince people about social contracts and "social justice".

    I see those campaign posters of her staring off into space like a retard, a tard that genuinely believes the utterly stupid shit she says. Stupid voters is my fear.

    If you liked Obama, you'll love Warren!

    That reminds me of an article I saw on American Thinker writen in March 2014 about Elizabeth Warren http://www.americanthinker.com....._hole.html

    She just might be the president America deserves.

  • Sevo||

    Unfortunately, the rest of us get her, too.

    I don't think non-Massachusetts voters will be so kind to the Fauxcahontas stuffs.

    I've also got to say I don't think she's a true believer. She's a lawyer who appears to like lots and lots of money. Very typical progressive politician, like Obama or Hillary. Nothing different. Fabian bureaucratic socialism all the way down.

    People who truly believe in socialism for all, including themselves, never rise that far up the totem pole ladder. But the people who truly believe in socialism for everyone else...

    She'd be a dream come true for the red team...possibly less palatable to the independents than any team red pick.

    Cruz v Warren would be kind of fun, but I'd guess it will be the Hildebeest vs the least offensive stiff team red comes up with.

    Since team red will probably get control of congress this fall I'm ok with the Hildebeest winning despite the fact she should have been prosecuted for shit she did in ArKansas.

    From my perspective a divided executive and congressional branch helps to insulate us from monumentally stupid shit like part D and Obamacare. Divided government means less gov by default. That's ok by me.

  • John Galt||

    What's amazing is the Republicans can't even match the Hildebeest let alone defeat it. Maybe it's a clear sign it's time for the Grand Old Party to hang it up and throw a win to anyone with a ham sandwich.

  • AlgerHiss||

    Anyone believing this little twerp can’t get elected to the White House is quite delusional.

  • Faceless Commenter||

    Who even knows about her beyond us political junkies?

  • AlgerHiss||

    In 2006, your question was quite applicable to another unknown, first-term, hard-left US Senator.

    How likable is this whiny, high-pitched, nagging, scolding, blinking, little-old-man-glasses-wearing, business-hating, wealth-hating casting type for Hillary's Uglier, Less Personable Sister?
