Waiting for Godot

I suppose we’ll find out what’s going on eventually:

Liberal hero Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) said Tuesday that she’s waiting to see how progressive a Hillary Clinton presidential campaign would be.

Asked by the Rev. Al Sharpton on MSNBC’s “Politics Nation” whether Clinton would be a “progressive warrior,” Warren didn’t exactly give a ringing endorsement.

“You know, I think that’s what we gotta see,” Warren said. “I want to hear what she wants to run on and what she says she wants to do. That’s what campaigns are supposed to be about.”

Warren’s comments follow her private meeting with Clinton in December, when Clinton asked Warren for policy recommendations, The New York Times reported.

  1. Warren will be waiting until hell freezes over if she expects Clinton to ever become a “progressive warrior.” That isn’t who Clinton is.
    The following will be the main theme and bumper sticker for the Clinton 2016 campaign:
    “I am woman, hear me roar.”
    That will be the entirety of her message.
    She will play the misogyny card at every opportunity. If you criticize her for any reason she will claim that you are a woman hater. Even if you’re a women. (It’s a takeoff on the old self-hating Jew mime.)
    We saw that tactic rolled out in her speech the other night when she said, “there’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help women.”
    Clinton doesn’t want to talk about economics because she’s pro-Wall Street.
    Clinton doesn’t want to talk about foreign policy because she’s a pro-military interventionist who made a boat-load of errors while Secretary of State.
    Clinton doesn’t want to talk about our energy policy because Big Oil, Gas and Coal donate Big Bucks to her. (She supported the Keystone pipeline among other pro-carbon initiatives.)
    Clinton doesn’t want to talk about our trade policy because she’s a free-trader who supports the TPP.
    So she will attack her critics for being anti-woman instead.
    Hers will be a vacuous campaign devoid of any real discussion about the critical issues facing this country.

  2. True Imho. But if Clinton dropped dead tomorrow, the Democrat endorsed in the next election cycle will be indistinguishable in every piece but gender.

  3. The only way to actually know whether that’s true or not is if Clinton drops dead tomorrow.
    Hopefully she will chose not to run, we certainly wouldn’t want her to drop dead 🙂 so we can actually test your premise.

  4. we certainly wouldn’t want her to drop dead
    We who? I’m not so certain about that.
    If she dropped dead while driving a bus full of New Dem neolibs on a highway at the rim of a deep gravel pit…. I might not be able to contain my schadenfreude. I’d probably even take it as a sign of a luck day and buy a Powerball ticket.
    But Lless is right, there are plenty more where that sack of shit and her husband and Harry and Nancy and Debbie and Steny and Rahm and DiFi and came from.

  5. And I forgot to mention my local sacks of shit, Merkel and Wyden (who defends negotiations to cut social security benefits now so we don’t have to in 20 years, if and when we need might or might not actually need to, and who defends the ultra secret TPP negotiations because it will create jobs for his former staffers so they don’t get stuck in the revolving door, ooops, I think he said “jobs for Oregon”. I might have read the other part between the lie-nz.)

  6. Off the topic of sacks of shit and back to Warren’s comment. Given her goody two shoes, nicey nicey persona, that sounded like a huge dissing of Hillary Clinton. It was deliciously backhanded. My inner Jon Stewart said “oh snap!”
