1. She is incredibly smart NOT to attack Biden. To do so will backfire on any who do so.

 

Most Dems who are terrified of leaving Trump in power, whether they support Biden or not, see such attacks as direct support for Trump and the attacks on Democratic Party/supporters itself.

One can separate one's policies form those of Biden without the direct attacks. THAT is the right way to compete in this primary.

11. I agree and add it is NOT in her interest to do so - it is a good idea only as a long shot

 

Last edited Wed Jan 8, 2020, 11:53 AM - Edit history (1)

At this point, she is one of three people most likely to become the nominee. As such, she needs to be seen speaking about the good things she will do as President. Appearing positive, exuding energy and sending out calls for people to join her will make her stronger. Obviously, she must answer attacks made on her because to not to that would make her seem weak. Even then, her responses are better when she leads from her strength - facts, intelligence and a clear clarification.

However, Biden has not attacked her, nor have any of his prominent endorsers. At this moment, foreign policy is a big issue and the contrast should be between the rational Obama administration and the chaos of Trump. While Biden was an important member of that administration, any Democratic candidate - including possibly Sanders - will in the general election want to speak of the deep foreign policy bench - many from the Obama administration - who they will call on to take on the challenge of restoring the US on the international stage.

Warren is very uniquely positioned. I think the media for the most part misses that as they create their narrative of "lanes" which helps them simplify the complex choices many voters make. She has the potential to gain many undecided Clinton voters, while also gaining some undecided Sanders 2016 voters. That is probably more likely if she is not seen as attacking either Biden or Sanders.

Thinking of many past primaries, consider how both Howard Dean and Dick Gephardt, the two leading candidates in Iowa a month out before Iowa, both imploded after getting into a series of negative attacks on each other. I think both would still have lost to John Kerry as more people saw and heard him, unless one of them would have so quickly become the frontrunner that he had no chance at being heard.

More than in 2004, there are many of us that want to see a unified, positive Democratic party making a case for leaving the world of chaos where everything can turn on its head with a thoughtless tweet and which is focused on repairing our place in the world, leading the country, the businesses and the world to work against climate change, to repair the holes carved in the social network - including fixing health care availability. The primaries always focus on the relatively narrow differences, but care needs to be taken to point out how unified all the candidates are on basic goals, differing on the way to achieve them.

what they did for dukakis was pass a bill that took the power to appoint away from the governor and mandate a special election.

Sure, if coackly is the nominee we will lose the seat, but, I hope we won't make that mistake again. She is just an awful campaigner. Two losses is enough.

skilled at attacking other Dems as this is her first primary contest.

Funny how people were ok with Warren being hit for 3months and then became so outraged when she finally hit back.

Granted, she is not good at attacking other Dems. I am wary of those in the race who ARE.

in 538's numbers. I will say this and I know I will get some flack...but I do not see how she or Sanders become the nominee with very little AA support. The same is true for Buttigieg. And would we want to nominate someone that a critical component of our party does not support? In the early voting after Trump won, it was Black women who helped enormously win those early elections... they were very important in taking Virginia as well and the midterms. And if you look at the numbers in 19,critical to our win also. I just don't see it happening that either Sanders or Warren win the nomination.

It wasn't until Obama did well in Iowa and NH that they started shifting and he didn't really take off across the board until after Edwards dropped out ahead of TX.

When you are concerned about turning the WH, you are going to go with a known entity until you get a chance to see others in a real contest. Right now, Joe is the only Dem in the race that can claim a national resume and that's based on being the VP.

35. I don't agree. I see reasons why neither Sanders, Warren or Buttigieg have AA support...

 

Neither Warren nor Sanders have really interacted and courted the AA part of our party until they ran for the presidency. Sanders in particular has made remarks about identity politics and the idea that economics will improve AA lives and no other sort of help is needed is just false...same for women,Latinos...and other groups. I think AA always liked Obama ...they just wanted to sure he could win...I don't think AA voters particularly like either Warren or Sanders. I have worked with AA folks for GOTV in Cleveland. They are to the right of both Sanders and Warren...moderates. As for Buttigieg, he has never dealt with the police chief thing and he is polling at 0 with AA voters...he will never be the nominee. And I don't see any AA voters saying ...gosh Warren, Sanders, and/or Buttigieg can win so now we can support them...It is not going to happen...and in 2016 AA like both candidates that is not the case in 2020.

You can't claim the money is evil and corrupting when given to Pete but use the very same kind of money given to yourself to seed your campaign. This is no different at all than Franklin Graham complaining about Clinton's affairs and giving Trump a free pass.

Would you REALLY prefer that she had no principled stand going through this presidential campaign and was relying on big money donors like others? Because, if she went the way of bigmoney she would be steamrolling over everyone by now with the big moneymen pouring donations into her campaign in addition to their laying off the attacks.

53. So his timeline bad hers good

 

and as to the tweet that was back when MFA was being defined as a public option open to all in poll after poll after poll. My problem with Warren is the rank hypocrisy of her attack. Remember this money was raised in her 2018 reelection campaign where she knew she was facing a cream puff. She raised that money knowing it would be available for this campaign, transferred the funds to this campaign, and then attacked Pete, and only Pete, for raising money in the exact, precise same way she did. Oh, and on top of that, she lied about the cost of the win at the fundraiser. I do have a problem with dishonesty and hypocrisy.

54. The Dem senate machine has those fundraisers in place.

 

This is the first primary race she’s run, and the first race she controls. She was RECRUITED by Obama and Reid to run against Brown. She wasn’t a political animal steeped in the business. The Dem party handled it and put the team together for her.

LOL at your assertion that Med4All in 2018 was always about public option.

You can reach for a cover story like that for Pete’s attack on Warren on Med4All, yet show no flexibility or understanding of Warren’s countering on bigmoney fundraisers.

Pretty high horses are being ridden.

56. She was recruited in 2012 the money is from 2018

 

when she was running against a total cream puff. She knew all of the money she was raising could be given to this campaign. So she went to those oh so evil wine caves, took in that oh so evil money, then transferred that filthy evil money to her campaign to the tune of over $10 million, and only then decided that no one should be able to raise money the way she did. So Pete who ran in a small place, Harris who had real competition (albeit a fellow Democrat), Bullock who ran in a red state and a small one at that, Bennett who ran in a competitive state, and so on none of them should be permitted to raise money only her. If that isn't hypocrisy I don't know what is.

57. I get why you need to exaggerate, dsc.

 

You really have your knives out for her and carving the word hypocrite into her while excusing greater hypocrisies Of Pete’s campaign.

Have at it, dsc. I had enough primary exchanges with you in 2004. If I believed all your malicious exaggerations against Kerry I would have left the Dem party when he became the nominee.

Enjoy your day, dsc.

58. If you want to accuse me of lying then be adult enough to do so

 

instead of this passive aggressive crap. It is a fact she raised this money in her 2018 race and not her 2012 race. It is a fact she ran against a cream puff. It is a fact she transferred money to this campaign (over $10 million). All of those are facts. You many not like those facts but facts they are. And frankly I would have no problem with any of the above if she weren't now saying that Pete is corrupt for raising money in wine caves and lying (and she is lying) about the price of the wine. In her world, she gets to raise $10 million from rich people putting herself at an advantage that pretty much no one else but Sanders could have had, and then sit back and watch the others struggle to raise money. It is rank hypocrisy. It is no different than the meltdown Belacheck had when an opposing coach used the very same trick he had used in another game. Now, it is one thing to be like Sanders and not raise such money at all which he has pretty much done. It is quite another to raise 8 figures of this money for her Presidential campaign (and she knew this money would be there for this campaign) while a sitting Senator who didn't need it for her reelection and then after the fact tell the rest of the field you shouldn't raise that money.

59. I view it as exaggerating, dsc. You maximize if it's against Warren and

 

minimize wrongs if they are attached to Pete.

And, I will repeat, this is the first primary campaign Warren has ever embarked upon. She went into it under her own decision to not hold bigmoney fundraisers. Democrats needed to make that move sometime. You only attach malice to her decision. Attaching malice to that decision helps you to distort who she is in your assessment of her.

But...Be glad for her decision. Had Warren decided to stick with big money fundraisers she’d be way ahead by now.....tons of dough AND the corporate media shills would be singing her praises instead of spinning every move against her.

60. If she didn't realize she would have money left over after running against that cream puff

 

then I would have great difficulty with how smart she appears to be otherwise. And, in point of fact she could still return that money today if she chose to. There is nothing whatsoever stopping her campaign from refunding those donations. She is choosing not to.

61. And Pete will be explaining why his support for Med4All in 2018

 

that was unequivocal at the time and NOT described by him at the time as public option, made him right (and not hypocritical at all) to attack Warren on her support for Med4All.

Maximize against Warren.
Minimize for Pete.

Done, dsc. Ymmv.

55. Yes, because we now know Warren's a liar, an elitist, a stubborn woman,

 

a corporate shill, and not even a real democrat.

Thanks to all the campaigns who spent 3months letting us all know what a horrible person this Warren is.

You’ve all shown great honesty and courage by exposing this liar, corporate shill, and fake Dem.

.........Mr Buttigieg’s senior adviser, Lis Smith, ....... said on Twitter that if Ms Warren “wants to have a debate about transparency, she can start by opening up the doors to the decades of tax returns she’s hiding from her work as a corporate lawyer — often defending the types of corporate bad actors she now denounces”.

This was not true, but, thanks to Lis Smith for making sure people THOUGHT it was.

You mean pointing out how she took BIG money,
and then attacked Pete for his 'wine cave' fund raiser?

She would make mincemeat of red don in debates. Although I'm sure he would refuse to participate were she the nominee, her skills would do the same to him in day-to-day media coverage.
