As she gains against Bernie Sanders in the polls Warren is doing a very smart thing….
Making sure she signals to the party insiders that she is NO Bernie Sanders….
Sanders, who is NOT even a Democrat, has not held back on his wish to rearrange the Democratic Party to his liking….And attacking Obama policies…
Warren , who is stealing Sanders lefties in increasing numbers , is laying the ground work to track back to the middle for a general election run….
The establishment IS firmly behind Joe Biden…..
But if he should somehow fail?
(Warren has been the flavour of this month in the media)
The Warren piece are because she madden appearance at a DNC fundraiser and Joe Biden did not….
Also Warren did a 15,000 person rally recently , while Biden, like Clinton does smaller get togethers…
Joe Biden STILL leads the pack though by almost 2-1 in the polls….
When Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts addressed a few hundred donors last week at a fund-raiser for the Democratic National Committee, she called for “big, structural change” and hurled her familiar populist lightning bolts at the forces of concentrated wealth.
But Ms. Warren did not attend the event just to recite her stump speech. She had another, more tailored message for the Democratic check writers, state party leaders and committee members who were gathered at the elegant Fairmont San Francisco.
“Last year, I was running for re-election, but I didn’t hold back,” she said, reminding attendees that in the midterms she had helped more than 160 congressional candidates and nearly 20 hopefuls in governors’ races. “In fact, I raised or gave more than $11 million helping get Democrats elected up and down the ballot around the country” and “sent contributions to all 50 state parties, the national committees and the redistricting fight.”
Her point was easy to grasp: While her liberal agenda may be further left than some in the Democratic establishment would prefer, she is a team player who is seeking to lead the party — not stage a hostile takeover of it.
