It Makes You Wonder

Elizabeth Warren looked like she might become the front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination. But announcing her Medicare For All plan without simultaneously describing her sensible transition plan, as well as attacks from the corporate wing of the Democratic Party, have cost her a lot of support. She’s probably in third place now.

Still, I watch this brief video from a speech she made once, probably before she became a senator, and wonder what we could do with a president like her.

Who would you choose as president? A talented, hard-working woman who became a nationally-recognized expert on the law of bankruptcy, who knows what it means to struggle in America, and who has serious plans to fix our problems? Or a semi-senile, racist con man whose businesses declared bankruptcy six times (after he was handed $100 million dollars by his father), while “the burden of his failures fell on investors and others who had bet on his business acumen”.

Maybe we as a nation are too far gone to deserve a president like her.
