Maybe.

Elizabeth Warren.

Yes, maybe. Warren had to win the Mass senate seat to secure a pathway to the WH- and she did it. Now she has 4 years to try to increase her name recognition and and say/do a lot of things that a large number of people can approve of. I, for one, will be watching her.

Elizabeth Warren: What kind of senator will she be?




Warren’s first post-election answer left plenty of room for speculation. “I will work with anyone who’s out there to fight for America’s working families,” she told reporters before retreating home to sleep.
“Democrat, Republican, independent, Libertarian, contrarian — it doesn’t matter.”

While I think she is more likely than not to run in 2016, she would probably be stepping down regardless. Four years is a long time at State -- Colin Powell stepped down after Bush's reelection in 2004, and it wasn't to run for President. Warren Christopher stepped down after Clinton's reelection, too. It really isn't that unusual.

Ironic considering the overwhelming majority of women, asians, and college educated/wealthy people voted for Obama.

Romney got the Rush Limbaugh retards, and Mississippi Rednecks.

Your party hardly holds the claim for most intelligent voting population.

That's what they said about this election. No sitting President could ever win with such a horrible economy. Until the GOP fixes their platform and stops targeting old rich white guys, the GOP will stop winning the Presidency.

I think the Republicans are going to really struggle to gain control again unless Obama falls apart these next four years. I'll give credit where its due, Romney ran a good campaign. However, the Repbulicans have two major obstacles. For one, George Busch sank this country economically. He led us into a war with Iraq that not only was unnessecary, and but was also a war that we didn't have the money to pay for and as a result ran up our debt. To top that off, Busch also de-regulated Wall St. George Busch was a Republican. Also the Republican party has the stigma of being a party that is comprised of and for Rich-White-Christian-Males. Rich, White, christian, males are NOT and do NOT appeal to the mainstream anymore. The voter demographic is changing. I just got off the phone with a friend of mine who is an arch conservative and he said going with canidates like McCain and Romney that are more moderate has hurt the Republicans and he feels they need a canidate that is more far right. I told him I disagree. The majority of America is not far right or left, but center. I don't have all the answers, but I feel the Republicans have an up-hill struggle
Maybe......... i will be dead so i won't have to look at her. But if you won't be dead then you will need to save up for so many 55 gallon barrels of rubber cement as you can get, because you will have to glue her face on every day..... Get bungi cords too because you know how old broads and gravity are....

Personally I can't understand your excitment. Different strokes for different folks I guess.

I know I already don't like looking at her NOW She is gag me with a spoon frugly!

Grow up, and wise up.
I don't like her either, but I can think of better ways to say it than be reaching into the gutter. Ted is a Republican. I did not comment on yours because I did not bother to read it. Now that I have, I wish I had not. Republicans do not have a monopoly on being crass.

She's not looking too healthy in my opinion. Four years is a long time. Maybe some rest on the sidelines will help her.

you want to talk about intelligence?

we have a president who drove 1 in 6 americans into poverty last year, (and that is with a 6 TRILLION dollar spending level in one term) and yet somehow imanaged to get reelected on the idea that in the next 4 years he will turn the economy around.

that is wishful or some might say magical thinking, my friend.

here is someone who does get it, though.
