    Anyone minimizing her chances because of the DNA issue is underestimating her. If that were going to drive her from contention, it already would have happened.

  • The fact that the left have a bunch of candidates to choose from speaks volumes. And can only be a good thing. Conducive to a battlefield of leftwing ideas which will hopefully continue shifting the nation's overton window even more to the left.

    Her proposed Anti-Capitalism Act alone is disqualifying. The Democrats should nominate a fiscal moderate, not an ideologue.

    I find the comments here revealing about the commentors. Ad hominems and horse-racy. It seems to me talking about anything other than issues this early is a complete waste of time.

  • I'm voting Republican I don't trust Democratic politics thus far. Our current president is the best I've ever seen also this far. Clean the swamp takes a very special leader to accomplish. Our nation needs a deep cleansing that's for sure. In life as we all know, when your a leader or a boss or supervisor at work stepping on toes which have been locked into a certain way of doing things is the hardest thing to change. Trump is doing this and he expects to get resistance.

    Surprised she announced it in Massachusetts rather than on an Indian Reservation.

    Given what we know about her, you would think she would pack-in her presidential aspirations and ride out the 2020 election as a humble senator from Massachusetts - relax, take some time off. It was disappointing to find out she referred to herself as an “American Indian” on her Texas Bar app rather than going with the Media approved “Native American.”

    I honestly cannot tell any difference in the Democrat candidates so far. I have a feeling that the one who emerges from the primary field will be the one the media wants to promote (i.e. picked with good sound bites, invited to be on television new shows and given softball questions, etc.) That, in itself, will be cause for alarm because you know that candidate will then be the puppet of the media.

    Each candidate announced so far is so out of touch reality and lacks the ability to back up their outright lies that it's hard to believe Trump wont get a second term. Time for Dems to get serious and not make hating Trump their main goal. Poor leadership in Pelosi and Schumer. Very poor. The way NP handled herself at the state of the union was at least as childish as anything Trump ever said from the stump. At least he meant it. She was all about optics....as was BHO. #MAGA

    She might have some appealing policy positions but as an adult her fraud of posing as Native American is very harmful- it doesn’t seem like she really understands the magnitude of it at this point: this issue is not trivial at all and not only hurts her campaign- hurts the cause of a “tamed” “sustainable” capitalism as well.

    She missed her chance last election cycle. Elizabeth Warre was and continues to be (along with Bernie Sanders) the reason so many dems have embraced progressive policies. Thank you, but, next!

    Seriously? After all of the Native American issues, lying on documents? I guess she'll fit right in...

  • I really hate saying this but the Democratic nominee will in large be selected by the media. And stupid ass polls.

    "There are three kinds of lies...

    Lies.

    Damn lies

    and statistics".

    Sorry. Forgot who said this. But ain't it the damn truth.

    All I can say is is that I really do hope there is an alternative to Sen. Warren running for President. Its not that I don't like her positions; I just don't like her period

    How is that her problems are worse than treason by selling the future of the country in exchange for funding for Trump's failing real estate business and a building in Moscow?

    Well, she has made her challenge much more difficult, even during the primaries. I don’t see her as a Presidential candidate.

    You know it's funny I see a lot of negative comments but not insightful arguments.

    I agree with one commenter who said they'll be a lot of leftist making statements on their platforms..

    And I do agree it runs the risk of sounding like an echo chamber it just becomes noise.

    The Republicans did it last year with their army of candidates and the one that came out was the one that was absolutely over the top.

    Maybe it's just me but I would prefer one that didn't raise their voice to create fervor a candidate

    It doesn't belong to a man to direct his own steps however we do have an ANSWER.

    I guess that's a real problem on both sides of the aisle. The pressures of office and being in the public eye; all of these politicians slowly become hypocrites.
