BOSTON — Senator   Elizabeth Warren   of Massachusetts plans to drop out of the presidential race on Thursday and will inform her staff of her plans later this morning, according to a person close to her, ending a run defined by an avalanche of policy plans that aimed to pull the Democratic Party to the left and appealed to enough voters to make her briefly a front-runner last fall, but that proved unable to translate excitement from elite progressives into backing from the party’s more working-class and diverse base.

Though her support had eroded by Super Tuesday, in her final weeks as a candidate she effectively drove the centrist billionaire,   former New York Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, out of the race   with debate performances that flashed her evident skills and political potential.

She entered the race railing against the corrosive power of big money, and one long-term consequence of her campaign is that Ms. Warren demonstrated that someone other than Senator Bernie Sanders, and his intensely loyal small-dollar donors, could fund a credible presidential campaign without holding fund-raisers.

Her potential endorsement is highly sought after in the race and both Mr. Sanders and former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. have spoken with Ms. Warren since Super Tuesday, when the end of her campaign appeared imminent.

I don't think she really had much of a shot. Her constant go for the jugular approach and constant self back slapping during the debates eroded her chances and turned off many of her support base. Big question now is who she will have her base support. I'm betting she will back Bernie.

Coming from a candidate whose net worth is around 12 million between herself and her husband, to rail against big money always sounded kind of strange.

That's the problem. She had no practical plan for that. Free stuff is not free.

I don't watch debates, but I've heard from many on the left, and independents, that her constant attacks turned them off.

She didn't have a VIABLE plan to pay for ALL the free stuff she was proposing and where she did it wouldn't work.   Her single payer health care system for example.   She's is lying about it not costing the middle class anything but thats okay.   If and when she ever got it, the plan was to beg forgiveness from all the people she knowingly lied to.   Which includes the entire middle class no matter what lies she is telling.   Whatever it takes right?

Paying for the rest of her free stuff is even more problematic.   Student loan forgiveness from day one?   No problem that adds over one trillion in the first year.   New Green Deal?   Another 5-10 trillion per year with no viable way to pay for either without raising taxes on everyone.   Etc, etc.

Pay hospitals and doctors significantly less to help pay for her single payer health plan.   No problem .... watch hospitals fold and doctors leave their practices in droves.   Need hernia surgery?   No problem but you have to wait 6-12 months.   You can wait can't you?

But folks looking for more free shit love her right?   At least Bernie is being honest about raising taxes and voters saw right through Warren.   So now she is gone.

Lies, more lies, they're all damn lies Warren.   Good riddance.

I think Warren's math is similar to Brian Williams math:

“Bloomberg spent $500 million on ads. The U.S. population is 327 million. He could have given each American $1 million and still have money left over,

Joe is definitely senile I don't think Bernie is. Bernie is a crazy communist sympathizer. If Joe is elected he'll be the POTUS in name only with the country being run by the far-left lunatics.

This nation is in bad shape when our choices in the general election will be a  communist sympathizer, a guy with dementia or a guy that acts like a 10-year-old schoolyard bully in the body of a 74-year-old man.

Barack and Michelle will endorse Biden because that will give Obama a third term as he'll be behind the scene making all the decisions to finish his fundamentally transforming the United States of America to the Socialist Peoples Republic of America much like Cuba and Venezuela.

We'll seldom see Biden as the Democrats will be too scared of putting him in front of the camera's afraid his dementia will cause him to forget what he was told to say. Joe would probably fuck up referring to Barack as the president.

I can imagine what Joe's inaugural speech will be like. " Enough about me, Ladies and Gentleman, I now present the President, Barack Obama"

If Biden is elected his dementia will get so bad the Democrats will have to lock him up in his bedroom shielding him from the public to keep him from saying stupid shit.

After Woodrow Wilson suffered a stroke his wife Edith began to take on a much more prominent role in his affairs keeping him out of the public's view. Obama will take on Mrs. Wilson's role during Joe's term making all of the decisions. I guess that's better than having a President Sanders.

I resent this slanderous likening of the United States system of governance to Russia's Medevec:Putin governance. That Russia thing bore itself out. There is no valid reasonable for blowing out noise pollution ahead of this election. Listen up!

Why fight with lies, misinformation, disinformation, and whisper campaigns, republicans? Lower the 'limbo-bar" even lower, guys and gals. This is what the Trump Administration does, folks! This is what they do!

  • Sen. Elizabeth Warren will drop out of the Democratic presidential race, leaving former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders as the last major contenders for the nomination.
  • Warren’s exit — like that of billionaire Mike Bloomberg — came after the Massachusetts senator’s poor showings in crucial Super Tuesday contests.
  • It leaves what was once a historically diverse Democratic field essentially narrowed to two white men in their seventies.
  • It was not immediately clear if the progressive Massachusetts senator planned to endorse one of her rivals, a move which could be pivotal as Biden and Sanders jockey for a delegate lead.

Actually Wallyw, brought in Biden and Sanders which tilted the table and moi probably first mentioned the word, "Trump."  It's fair play because we are yet discussing politics and "the Mouth" Trump is all over the place talking when he should be quiet. So we can discuss him too - especially if John Russell (the Seeder) is not against doing so.
