2. Absolutely

 

I'm of the firm belief that there should be a large debate during the primaries which should include Warren, Hillary, Sanders and others.

But Warren has admitted to signing a letter urging the "terrific" Hillary Clinton to run....


Sen. Elizabeth Warren says she hopes Hillary Rodham Clinton runs for president in 2016 the latest in a series of declarations of support by the Massachusetts Democrat, who some have speculated could seek the Oval Office herself.

"All all of the women Democratic women I should say of the Senate urged Hillary Clinton to run, and I hope she does. Hillary is terrific," Warren said during an interview broadcast Sunday on ABC's "This Week," noting that she was one of several senators to sign a letter urging Clinton to run in 2016.

9. In addition to signing the letter urging Hillary to run, she's repeatedly said she's not running

I take Elizabeth Warren at her word.

4. Against her will huh?

 

Is it because she is a woman that you believe she is wishy washy and just needs to be "convinced" to do your will?

6. he does? Or does he just think she doesn't?

 

She answered quite definitely 3 times "she is not running" and she sounded quite perturbed to HAVE to answer that way. But she couldn't possibly mean it....she IS just a woman after all. Who cares if SHE is annoyed!

8. Yes.

 

That's exactly it. Amazing how you captured the essence of it all so succinctly.

10. I'm not about to start trying to pressure a woman to do something that she doesn't want to.

She has said "no", and "no" means "no". Of course if she says "yes" I will welcome her into the primary race as my philosophy has always been the more, the merrier.

12. There shouldn't be a movement to draft anyone.

The presidency is a very hard job and not everyone is up to it. If Liz Warren does not want to run for the presidency, then her wishes should be respected.

Besides, just because she's the new darling of the Left, what makes you think that she could win in a general election?

14. That depends. Will her running mate be Alan Grayson?

 

Or Rand Paul?


I think that if & when she runs, many of her so-called supporters - those who are less-informed, less thoughtful, and with less-than-realistic expectations - will be disappointed in everything about her. Just like they were disappointed with Clinton, Gore, Kerry and Obama.

15. There isn't a "I'd rather see her as VP under Clinton and then Pres 8 years later" option, alas.
