A Politico piece questions the appearance of Warren as a speaker at the Democratic Convention….
The piece points out that Warren will probably come across as to the left on Obama and some may worry that she will lose HIM some votes….
To heck with that!
Warren is a gifted thinker whose inexperience in politics IS serving her well…
She is the one that advanced the thought that every rich Republican out there relies on the Government’s services to get thru their everyday lives….
And to make money….
This is theme the President has embraced and incorporated into HIS campaign…..
She was also the first choice for the nation’s Consumer Protection Bureau which scared Republican’s…..
Let the lady speak…
And she should speak LOUD and CLEAR….
And if she pulls things to a left a bit…
Warren has “that one elusive quality that we all want in our leaders, but can’t ever seem to get — freshness. Few people can combine newness with competence — Palin demonstrates the obvious pitfall — but she’s one of them. That was obviously a big part of Obama’s allure in 2008,” said former Democratic Governors Association executive director Nathan Daschle.
“At the same time, her anti-Wall Street message is powerful but limiting. As Obama learned, what works in Massachusetts isn’t necessarily what will work nationally,” he added.
“Most Americans are optimists, not pessimists. They don’t see themselves as victims. They see themselves as upwardly mobile, and that’s the product of their own sweat and labor. They work so hard to provide for their families that they naturally resent anyone they perceive as taking credit away. What they hear is ‘You didn’t work hard enough to deserve what you have.’”
After Obama opted not to nominate her to head the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau in the face of strong Republican opposition, Warren became a hero to the progressive left, which already talks about her for national office in 2016. Long before she ever launched her Senate run, the liberal base was drafting her.
More important, she represents a growing force within the party — a progressive agenda coupled with disdain for the type of transactional politicking that former White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel and his colleagues in the Clinton administration were known for.
The announcement of Warren as the speaker who will introduce Bill Clinton was largely lost amid headlines about Mitt Romney’s missteps on his overseas trip. Democrats highlighted her strengths — a woman and an icon with the base for her message about economic fairness, fighting one of the most competitive and strategically important Senate battles in the nation.
