David Harsanyi on Elizabeth Warren's Appeal

When Sen. Elizabeth Warren rallied beleaguered House liberals to push back against a bank-coddling omnibus bill and the spineless White House that enabled it, she showed us some of her dynamic appeal. Passing trillion-dollar pieces of legislation should never be easy, and disrupting the current cozy, bipartisan environment surely can't be a bad thing.

Warren's positions far more closely reflect the sensibilities of constituents in the modern-day Democratic Party than Hillary Clinton's, not only in substance but in tone, argues David Harsanyi. Warren, hopelessly wrong as she is, is liable to offer the country a better class of political debate than the one we've lived through for the past eight years or the one we would get from a Clinton campaign.
