I’ve thought for a long time that Elizabeth Warren has her eyes on the presidency. She has carefully staked out the right turf and is a favorite of the hard thumping fanatics in the CML. When she was running for the Senate, I recall seeing moonbat women I know just about faint at the mere mention of her name. Warren’s Facebook page has that cultish vibe to it. It is the sort of fawning that makes normal people uncomfortable. Warren is a lifetime parasite and she knows how to game the system. Obama’s departure leaves a void in the party and she could walk right in and fill it.
Today comes news she is prepping a book for later in the year. This is a common thing for pols with an eye on a presidential run. They are written to make life easy for the press covering them. Well, easier for the liberal press swooning over a Democrat. Republicans tend to write books that are used as ammunition against them. They are not called the stupid party for nothin’! Warren’s next book smells like a campaign platform to me.
The conventional wisdom is Clinton will run away with the nomination. It is her turn. The Democrats don’t play like that, but their bench is empty right now. The other argument is the cult will want to run a women to play the vagina card like they played the race card. Warren has a vagina too and she has the liberal women on her side. All of those pant suit wearing feminists kicking around the cult have never forgiven Hillary for the 1990’s. Hillary may be a wacko liberal, but she never showed any contrition for her role in Bubba’s abandoning the Left after the ’94 election. The Cult holds a grudge.
In Washington it is an open secret that Warren is quietly feeling out supporters and donors. Hillary is old and looking rough. If she falters, Warren is going to want to be ready. Publishing a book no one will read is another way to touch the donor base. They will be asked to buy in bulk. If after the midterm the Cult is looking for someone around whom they can rally, Warren could be right there to play the Bobby Kennedy role to Hillary’s Humphrey.
That’s the pattern with the Left. Every generation of fanatics takes aim at the previous generation of fanatics. I don’t fully understand why this is the case. The New Dealers had it in for the Progressives of the previous era. The Red Diaper babies took aim at the New Dealers. The New Left took aim at the old commies from the WW2 era. Maybe it is just generational politics. Hillary is not a favorite of Gen X women or Millenials. Warren is their gal. She could duplicate the formula Barry used to choke off Hillary’s finances, while running as an outsider, something that always plays well with the Cult.
