Doesnít seem like a good thing and likely another in a long line of centrism, bipartisan leaf extension, etc moves that will be harmful to passing progressive agendas to actually help Americans over businesses in the future

re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

You guys really can't see from her DNA escapade and this most recent desperation NYE video why Warren isn't going to be a good candidate?

She would be up against someone who insulted and social mediaed his way to the presidency (which turns out is an effective strategy even if you are a moron) and she is terrible, literally terrible at both of those things. She also isn't that likeable or charismatic.

She is smart, highly competent, has mostly good policy positions and would make a great president. I'd take her in a heartbeat and she would be one of my top choices of the candidates we know of to actually be president. But in 2020 those things literally don't matter regarding her electability. Last election was the "most qualified presidential candidate ever" vs. a literal brain dead moron. If you haven't learned from that then I don't know what to tell you.

It helps keep rando lefties from offering up no-hope free college or M4A legislation that would be tough votes for more moderate Democrats without including pay-fors. It doesn't bind the leadership, who can just waive PAYGO, but it does create a neutral procedural basis for Democrats who don't want to consider a bill to shoot it down.

Well, you did call them "100% Trumpkins" a few posts ago. But splitting that hair really isn't worth the effort.

Would you describe that to be a trumpist (?) thing to do?

I think people are pretty rattled by 2016 and aren't being that reasonable rn. This DNA thing is just a lame joke and not something Trump can harp on forever like Hillary's Emails. The NYT was an infinite well of Emailz coverage and was treated like a real scandal.

It's super early and we have nothing to actually talk about regarding 2020. Like, people on Twitter are inventing Beto - Bernie feuds. This is all really dumb
