    Are you ready for Presidential Candidate Elizabeth Warren?

    Are you ready for Presidential Candidate Elizabeth Warren?

    You better at least get ready.

    There’s a buzz being fed. Warren gave a speech to the AFL-CIO today, and the “draft Warren” talk is starting.

    There is no bigger or better demagogue in American politics. No one is as keyed into the politics of victimhood as she is.

    The former law professor also will demagogue and run against the Supreme Court:

    Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren and AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka denounced the United States Supreme Court on Sunday as a right-wing panel that serves the interests of corporate America, previewing a theme that is likely to rise in prominence with the approach of the 2016 election.

    On the opening day of the AFL-CIO’s convention, Warren – the highest-profile national Democrat to address the gathering here – warned attendees of a “corporate capture of the federal courts.” …

    Warren’s reception in Los Angeles also underscored her core appeal to the progressive base of the Democratic Party. Her entrance into the convention hall was greeted was effusive applause; Trumka hailed her as “an honest-to-God champion, the real deal” and a senator who stands up to “billion-dollar corporations and Wall Street on behalf of working people.”

    And indeed, the former Harvard Law professor’s speech was a populist paean to the role of labor in fighting “powerful interests [that] have tried to capture Washington and rig the system in their favor.”

    I’m beginning to think Warren will run even if Hillary also runs. I never thought that before, but I’m coming around to that view.

    We’ll be there. Reminding people of what she has worked so hard to have people forget.

    I started reading “Bull by the Horns”, by former FDIC chairman Sheila Bair. (love those $3.99 with shipping used books)

    She seemed like a reasonable voice in the melt down, but in the book she spoke warmly of her good friend Elizabeth Warren. That sorta soured me on confidence in Bair’s views.

    Warren has a bad history, and kicking off her “They Love Me … they really love me” campaign in the arms of thug Trumka surely can’t help. But her supposed expertise is in banking, as I understand it. Her policy stance needs to be tied to the current failures, though I’m not clear exactly what she preaches.

    Voters surely won’t want another leftist that demands special treatment based on race or gender. But if Hollywood, Big Media, unions and a few billionaires choose Lieawatha, perhaps LIV’s will again play Charlie Brown to the Lefty Lucies holding the football.

    I can’t imagine a reason why Hillary’s candidacy would influence Elizabeth Warren’s. Warren is going to run. Period. End of story. Hillary will also run. The infighting between them will be vicious (and fun to watch). Hillary will lose.
