Like a game of ‘Bop the mole”……
Democratic candidates keep being talked up….
It’s too late people…
Hillary HAS moved vaguely to the left…
But having her move too far isn’t gonna happen….
She co-oped several of Sen. Warren’s policies….
She has also allowed Sen. Sanders to push her….
But Biden, Sanders and especially Warren simply do NOT have the money, organization and support anymore to overtake Hillary Clinton….(Hillary just about OWNS Black and Latino Democrats)
Even if some people are worried about Clinton handling the emails thing….
If Warren had run for president, she would have put Clinton on her heels, liberals say.
“The enthusiasm, the energy that Warren tapped into would have made her an incredibly strong contender. She obviously decided not to get in the race but there’s no doubt that her agenda is exactly where the primary electorate is,” said Ilya Sheyman, the executive director of MoveOn.org, which helped launch the “Run Warren Run” campaign.
Sheyman argues the race is still wide open and is pushing Clinton to embrace, as has Warren, a proposal to expand Social Security. Her campaign rivals, Sanders and former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley, have already done so.
“Progressives are incredibly eager to hear if Secretary Clinton will come out for expanding Social Security. At this point it’s a wide open race and we’re looking forward to vigorous conversations,” he said.
But not all Democrats agree that Warren would have given Clinton a viable challenge. Some say she would struggle, like Sanders has, in appealing to African-American and Latino voters.
Joe Trippi, a strategist who served as campaign manager of Howard Dean’s insurgent liberal bid in 2004, downplayed Clinton’s vulnerability.
“If she were threatened and her supporters thought, ‘Hillary is in trouble,’ there would be more energy in her campaign,” he said. “The majority of people don’t see Bernie Sanders as a threat yet.”
He noted that in Democratic presidential primaries going back to 1984, African Americans have been a key demographic, and argued that Clinton has those voters in her camp at this point. He said a potential game changer would be if Obama endorsed Sanders, but virtually no one in Washington expects that to happen…..
