Elizabeth Warren running for US president would likely be a bad idea, suggests Thomas Gagen of The Boston Globe. While she did well in Massachusetts, winning re-election to the Senate with a 60.3% majority, its liberal voter base is a poor representation of the country. Her voting record as a Senator is very liberal, which is guaranteed to alienate her from many Americans. Hillary Clinton failed in 2016 because she didn’t manage to convince voters in Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania. Warren is highly unlikely to do better there. The controversy over her claiming to have Native American ancestry would also hamper her campaign.
In her announcement to run for US president, Elizabeth Warren has set out a clear set of priorities that will benefit the country, holds Jill Filipovic of CNN. Unlike other candidates, she understands that economic and racial factors still affect many Americans and need to be addressed. She has a clear vision on corruption, calling out the way it lives on legally and illegally. Big banks are in her crosshairs for having chipped away at regulations to gain more money, as are politicians that have benefited themselves financially at a cost to everyone else. She is addressing the key issues that America faces today, which the country should recognize.
