    Warren v. Clinton

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by Steerpike, Nov 14, 2013.

    For those of you who keep up with U.S. politics, what do you think of the rumors of Elizabeth Warren running for President in 2016. So far, I haven't seen anything from Warren herself to suggest she is planning to run, but there are those who are hoping she'll oppose Clinton.

    Personally, I can't think of any circumstance under which I'd vote for Clinton, but I would certainly be open to voting for Warren, so I think it would be an interesting turn of events if it came to pass.

    No circumstances, as in, no matter who the GOP opponent is?

    I don't really see it, and personally, I think we need her in the Senate. She doesn't seem to have that desire to be President -- something which a lot of our presidents have had, and is, in some ways, necessary, given that the job is so all-encompassing.
    I'll be happy to vote for Hilary in 2016.

    That doesn't really matter to me. I don't take a lesser evil approach to voting. Although I voted for Obama the first time, he lost my support in the last election. I didn't like Romney, either. I voted for Jill Stein. If Clinton is the nominee, I'll almost certainly vote third party again.

    Yeah, you may be right. She hasn't shown any indication of it directly. She's good at fundraising, however, and I think she'd give Clinton a good run for the nomination.

    I wouldn't vote for Clinton because of her affiliation to Obama. Seriously, Obama has been a huge disappointment, and I fear Clinton would be the same.

    Not to mention corrupt, entrenched political establishment. And I don't think family dynasties are a good thing. We had enough of that with the Bushes.

    True. I like to think of Obama's 2nd term as Bush's 4th term.

    ...and here we go bringing race into it, do you ever stop?

    As an outsider I would have voted for Bill when he ran, thought he was great, well at least international media painted him that way. I would have voted for Obama twice as well but as soon as he won his second term he turned into the Anti-Christ. The jury is out on Hilary because while she was Obama's right hand she wasn't slow in jumping ship around the time I turned off him and she couldn't go against the party and say why she left because she's always wanted to be President and obviously needs their backing.

    I think the timing is right for Bill to suddenly turn on Obama too, just in time to start pushing for Bill's husband :D

    I would like to see a decent candidate from Reps instead of the usual thick-as-shit people they normally put up, the Bushes, the Lipstick Bulldog and Romney who probably still thinks aeroplane windows should open!

    It was a tongue-in-cheek reference to the controversy surrounding Elizabeth Warren self-identifying as a Cherokee.

    She has also self-identified as a 'woman of color'.

    I'm from Massachusetts. I wouldn't vote for Warren if I had a gun pressed against my temple.

    I'd vote for whoever isn't Clinton. Her affiliation with Obama (aka anti-Christ) is only half of it. What about all of her 'illnesses' that came up when asked about Benghazi (to name one)? She's not trustworthy. And Warren is a democrat, which leaves me out of options!

    White is a color, JJ. ;)

    White is an equal mix of all colors.

    I still don't understand ;( one gallon of every colour mixed in a mixing pot by a professional mixing person/machine creates a gazillion gallons of white? One red sock in a washing machine of whites gets me battered!
