Opening Arguments

Run, Liz, run

More liberal than Barack Obama? Really? Is that even possible?

Elizabeth Warren probably isn’t going to run for or win the Democratic nomination for president in 2016, but that hasn’t stopped progressives from trying to get her to run. And it’s no wonder: Warren would be among the most liberal presidential candidates — if not the most liberal — in the modern era (since 1972, when Democrats began selecting their nominee through the caucus and primary process).

Of course, when you get a certain distance into Far Left territory, it's probably pointless to make distinctions. Lord, wouldn't it be wonderful if she actually became the nominee? After eight years of progressive government, I think the country will be more than a little sick and tired of it, so the more liberal Democrats get the better off the rest of us will be. Let's have another McGovern debacle!
