OFFICIAL Warren for President thread

Recommended Posts

In her last interview, Warren explained what she wants to break up the tech giants.  She thinks it hurts competition and business formation for the giants to control both the platform and the products for sale.  She directly said she isn't a socialist.  She said she is a capitalist who believes the markets need regulation. 

 

Although she didn't mention it directly, she was drawing a line between herself and Bernie. As in, he's a socialist, I'm a capitalist.  It's a good point since they are competing for some of the same voters, but it's probably too subtle for people who aren't listening closely. She'll end up having to be more direct about the distinction.

Not sure if we heard the same interview, but I think I heard her on Morning Joe say the exact same thing. I was very impressed. They were going around the table going from topic to topic with rapid-fire questions and she was handling it all like a beast.

 

I'll say one thing, and I'll directly contradict what I said about her maybe losing to Trump. If Warren can make it through this deep and talented field, she will prove she isn't awkward enough to win, and could end up being someone who really fires up the base and could really drive turnout.

And she appears to be right.  There is a slump in business formation.

Beto and Warren are opposites for me.  I like Warren's policy ideas (though I am not sold on breaking up the tech companies).    She just doesn't have the charisma and personality chops to win.   Beto seems to have all the personality and charisma but I have been underwhelmed by his policy/ ideas.

I know you guys are sick of me saying so, but check out Buttigieg. I find him to be a very pleasant mix of the two, combined with being a veteran of the War in Afghanistan, a guy who has been successful in the corporate world. Not quite as charasmatic as Beto, but very personable and relatable and connects, and he may be the one guy in the race that is as smart as or smarter than Warren, although not with quite her depth of knowledge on the issues.

At this point, Beto talks about his goals (which almost all the candidates share), but he doesn't talk about the policies to implement them.  He's got some time but it's already being talked about in the media.  He's going to have to up his game and put some meat on the bones.

I've heard a little of his comments.  He's got substance for sure.

I’m intrigued by him. He does have an interesting balance. It would also be the first time I’ve voted or supported a presidential candidate younger than me. 😉

Agreed but there's plenty of time for this. Obama had the exact same criticisms, even deep into the primary campaign.

If we were a smarter country that cared about substance instead of flash she’d be the nominee. 

 

But it as you can tell from Beto’s popularity people care almost nothing about policy specifics and chops. People like Beto and they like they way he talks and how it makes them feel. 

 

Warren reminds me of someone you’d find out is PM of Finland or something. I just don’t think she’ll take off on a country so obsessed with image and emotion.

True, but you can tell by this discussion that some people are already paying close attention.

Warren does a lot better in more direct situations with voters e.g. the CNN townhall on tonight imo.

Caught the end of it.  Speaking style is a little hyper.  Substance is top notch.
