Here we go: Warren vs. Clinton

Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren says she's not seeking the White House.

"I'm not running for president and I plan to serve out my term," Warren, who's up for reelection in 2018, said in December.

But she sure is acting like a potential 2016 contender. She's traveling around the country, introducing herself to voters, testing her message - the sort of thing that candidates do...

At 6:30pm ET, S.E. Cupp and Van Jones host a debate with former Governors Tim Pawlenty and Bill Richardson.

promo split 7.16

Could Elizabeth Warren defeat Hillary Clinton in a Democratic primary?

    In a world where seemingly every political figure compromises with dirt, an Elizabeth Warren and a Bernie Sanders ticket makes sense.

    It ain't gonna happen for Warren. People like to compare her to Obama as the hidden gem in the Dem party. However, Obama had his over the top convention speech to catapult him into the limelight. Warren hasn't had that chance but she could in the convention that nominates Hillary. Besides all that, Warren looks too much like a Northeast Harvard liberal which would be really tough for the red state people to swallow. She is darn smart, speaks well, has good ideas but she'll need a visual reset to sell herself outside of Mass. Pres. Clinton ought to give her a cabinet level job to increae her visibility and get her ready for the world stage.

    The GOP Solution The GOP Prayer/Mantra/Solution: Dear God...With your loving kindness, help us to turn all the Old, Sick, Poor, Non-white, Non-christian, Female, and Gay people into slaves.

God...Grant us the knowledge to then turn them into Soylent Green to feed the military during the next "unfunded/off-the-books" war. God...Give us the strength during our speeches to repeatedly yell........TAX CUTS FOR THE RICH!!!..........and........GET RID OF SS AND MEDICARE!!! In your name we prey (purposely misspelled, or is it?)........Amen

    When are you going to get help? Surely, you have obamacare by now to get help for your sick postings, or were you one of the persons who found out they don't have obamacare insurance after all because it is so screwed up. BTW, did you know the premiums are going even higher and higher?

    Hillary not win the democratic nomination. Impossible, after all the liberal media have been telling us she is unbeatable.

    And that is what the MSM was saying in 2006, until Obama came on the scene with a real opportunity.

    Clinton will NOT get the DNC nomination. IF it is a female, it will probably be Elizabeth Warren, but that is still a big IF.

    Oh please say it ain't so, possibly no Hillary nomination? It can't be, oh no, it must have been a video dream. Surely, CNN is joking , She is the greatest democrat even remotely possible to go against any Republican, that's what all the liberals and liberal media has been saying for months and months. Oh! No! No! No!

    The more interesting question for me: "Who's going to come along "from nowhere", and knock Hillary out of getting the Prez Nomination in 2016, like B. Obama did in '08"?! Now that is the 64-dollar question. Don't believe E. Warren can do it. They (detractors), believe that Hillary has "too much baggage"? Have they looked at E. Warren? Don't believe so. As a "purported" "Native American" (stated on her college entrance app, to get "favorable" advantage in being accepted into college – didn't sit well with those folks who believed she took unfair advantage of other applicants. Might or might not have been true, depending upon "getting tribal distribution of money/etc., based upon percentage of native american blood/heritage that the recipient qualified for. Those "touting" E. Warren might need to "rethink" whether she can overcome that and other things from Elizabeth's past that will come back to haunt her. Not a particular "rosey" picture.

    Could Elizabeth Warren beat Hillary for the Democratic presidential nomination? A Chicago "community activist" turned 2nd string thug politician beat Hillary! Have either one of these two every done anything? You know, like hold a real job or meet a payroll? I know the Clintons were "dead broke" but Hillary managed to pull her family out of financial ruin with 2 phone calls....maybe she could do the same for the nation.

      Although Cruz and Clinton are both Free-Traitors and Warren is Not.

      I wouldn't vote for any of them, especially not Hillary or Cruz.

      The American People deserve much better choices.

      The problem in trying to elect good leaders for The United States of America has nothing to do with the color or gender of our politicians. – It's our politician's, from both parties, lack of honesty and the lack of willingness to do right by the US citizens that they're elected by and should be representing.

      I wish we had someone like Ross Perot running again. If more people would have listened to Ross Perot back in 1992, America wouldn't be in this mess right now. I and many other people, who were able to see through all of the left vs right BS, did vote for Perot, because he was straight forward and just used common sense. He cared about his country and the American people.

    If I had to chose, I'd pick Warren hands down!

    Think about it – Why is Hillary constantly in the news? – Seriously every where you look the amount of "news/pep-rally" stories on Hillary are unbelievable – Every time you look, there are more and more and more – When is it going to stop? – This lady is rotten to the core and this is coming from someone who thinks both parties stink. – I don't trust the liberal media or FOX, because all they both do is to try and continue to polarize and distract the American People, while they're puppet-masters are screwing us right down the middle.

    Now they've even got an upcoming CBS series called Madam Secretary starring Tea Leoni that is yet another obvious prep-rally and propaganda tool to promote Hillary. – Do they really think that the American People are that stupid?

    What ever happened to: "We The People" ?

    Why is the media so infatuated with this evil-unethical-disingenuous-dishonest-power-monger?

    Wake up America! – Who's been pushing so hard for her and why?

    Could it be that Free-Traitors and Foreign interests own and control our media?

    It's Hillary – Hillary – Hillary 24 / 7 / 365 – Hummm?

    We all knew back when that whole Monica scandal was going on, that she must have made a deal with the Dems and the Devil for promises of power in the future in return for her standing by "her husband" Bill's side.

    You know the problem in trying to elect good leaders for The United States of America has nothing to do with the color or gender of our politicians. It's our politician's, from both parties, lack of honesty and the lack of willingness to do right by the US citizens that they're elected by and should be representing.

    Hillary Clinton's interview on ABC with Diane Sawyer – What a puff piece promoting Hillary – Ha, Ha, Ha cutie cutie – This is sickeningly transparent! – What a shocking harsh, no holds barred, interview? (Sarcasm)

    It's obvious Free-Traitors = ABC = Foxconn = China = Our money and our jobs going, going, gone!

    The American People need Loyal American Leaders who will stop selling us out to countries like Communist China, India and Mexico.

    The American People deserve leaders that will honor the fact that they are elected by the Citizens of the United States of America to represent the interests of those citizens and the country itself and that They are NOT Elected By or To Represent Lobbyist, the Global Marketplace (WTO, NAFTA, TPP), Foreign citizens or Illegal Aliens.

    Before Hillary Clinton runs for president, Americans need to remember that it was her "husband" that got us into bed with Communist China in the first place. – And how's that been working out for the American People and the Real American Economy?

    Clinton is the one who opened up the trade floodgates with Communist China and both Bill and Hillary were actively involved during their visit to China.

    Bill Clinton, "I did not have sexual relations with that woman nor did I have unethical trade relations with that communist Chinese government."

    Bill and Hillary Clinton are two of the biggest FREE-TRAITORS around.

    Hey you stinking Free-Traitors: The AMERICAN PEOPLE can see what's been and is still being done to them!

    And the Vince Foster incident and many others like it should not be forgotten.

    Hillary hasn't accomplished anything other than using the Monica scandal to leverage the Dems for future power.

    The American People need to ask themselves: Who's been pushing so hard for her and why?

    I truly believe that she is evil.

    The American People need Loyal American Leaders who will stop selling us out to countries like Communist China, India and Mexico.

    And that's certainly not Hillary, who's just a wolf in sheep's clothing.

    ------------

    Nice try China – How dumb do the Clinton pushers think that Americans are?

    This is an Obvious BS Spin to try and get Americans to forget that Bill and Hillary Clinton are two of the biggest FREE-TRAITORS around.

    Before Hillary Clinton runs for president, Americans need to remember that it was her "husband" that got us into bed with China in the first place. – And how's that been working out for the American People and the Real American Economy?

    I don't trust the Clintons at all. – It was the "Clinton Machine" that kicked the ball over to China, which got the Real American Economy rolling down the hill.

    Nixon only restored normal diplomatic relations between the US and China, but Clinton is the one who opened up the trade floodgates with Communist China. And both Bill and Hillary were actively involved during their visit to China.

    The American People need Loyal American Leaders who will stop selling us out to countries like Communist China, India and Mexico.

    And that's certainly not Hillary, who's just a wolf in sheep's clothing.

    The American People need to ask themselves – Who's been pushing so hard for her and why?

    I truly believe that she is evil.
