    'We Can Win': Elizabeth Warren Outlines 2020 Presidential Bid


    In a highly produced 4 1/2 minute video emailed to supporters on New Year's Eve, Warren made a populist political appeal, recounting her own middle class background and her work on consumer financial protections.

    Warren insisted the middle class is "under attack" from corporations and the right, including President Trump, who she vowed can be defeated in 2020.
    The middle class has been under attack for some time now.

    "We can win," meaning Democrats. Can Warren defeat him? What do you think?

    Warren appears too school teacherish, if that's a word. I don't trust her to force herself where it's needed. Obama had that problem too. I think a stronger personality candidate will overtake her.

    Warren could possibly win against Trump, but it would be too close.

    Excellent observation.
    Bernie may be the only viable communicator on your bench. Its anazing nobody came to realize how and why Bubba managed to connect with people. He was s a Rhodes scholar so he clearly was educated but didnt project an academic aloofness. It served zzFDR & JFK well so i dont understand why the current crop just refuses to adopt it.

    Bernie Sanders is too old to be president. Moreover, calling himself a "socialist" is a deal breaker for many people who think of Venezuela and Cuba when they hear the term. No, Bernie is better off being a gadfly speaking truth to power.

    I think the Democratic candidate is going to be someone who is currently off the radar. Who, I don't know. We need someone who can defeat the conman, but then we need someone who can govern after the election as well.

    Yes he is too old and he cant win.
    But none of the rest can communicate nearly as well.
    Maybe new faces will emerge and they are bobbong up now but that name recognition thing is legitimately important.
    Going to be intetesting.

    Bernie had very little name recognition when he first started campaigning. If someone is off the beaten path like Cortez or Beto O'Rourke, they can get name recognition very quickly. But sometimes the recognition isn't all that positive.

    Yeah. HRC knew to keep her various perspective pieces exclusive to the target audience (except when she didnt manage those audiences)

    Haha - I read this as the "we" being Republicans. Because frankly at this point the Democrats nominating someone like Elizabeth Warren would just about ensure Trump wins reelection. If Democrats nominate a centrist, moderate type - I think they crush Trump in 2020.

    Dont think there is such a thing. Further i dont think the fringe will let the DNC squeeze them out again.
