    Wow. What a post. The movement starts today; Warner/Bernstein in 2016!

      You don’t mean Mark Warner? He’s a blue-dog, which after last Tuesday, is a vanishing breed. Good riddance. Warner, one of the richest congressman, even among Senators, is already on record wanting to cut Medicare and Social Security, and would not fit well with Bernstein on the ticket, nor advocate for the fiscal stimulus needed. Just the opposite, he’s a very serious person when it comes to the debt.

        Sorry, Elizabeth Warren…I apologize for my mistake, I should have been more attentive to my spelling.

        • Smith says:

          Great, I was guessing you might have meant Warren, but unwilling to presume. Warren has an excellent book out, which would blow away any delusion that there are few substantial policy differences between her and Hillary Clinton. I bring that up because the press tends to overlook the fact that they are polar opposites. One wants to reign in the bloated financial sector, the other is, was, and always will be beholden to them. Actually, I know no such thing. I should probably check campaign contributions https://www.opensecrets.org and position papers, but you’re on your own there.

      I am serious. Count me as a supporter to the accomplishment.

    This should be the Democratic platform in 2 years. And the Democrats need to build a really sturdy platform.
