Most democrats are not progressives, so they are probably right.

If she is being attacked in the odious Murdoch press she must be doing something right good for her.

Well, there's also news out today on this:

Corporate front group Third Way admitted in a radio interview that they attacked Elizabeth Warren this week because her populist agenda was becoming too "viable" and "getting out of hand."

Specifically, they pointed to her joining us in support of expanding Social Security benefits:

"That Social Security plan was the final moment for us. It suddenly it became a much more talked about and viable alternative. We just looked at it and said 'Okay, this seems to be starting to get out of hand.'"

So Third Way wrote an op-ed calling Warren "dangerous." They tried to marginalize her, but instead got major pushback.
This week, the shaming began. We pressured 3 of Third Way's honorary co-chairs to publicly denounce their attacks! One called the attacks "outrageous."

We also generated dozens of news stories about Third Way's corporate ties.

The New York Times wrote, "The liberal groups’ campaign has already gotten results, the latest indication that the liberal wing of the Democratic Party is ascendant."

I feel very strongly about Elizabeth Warren, she's the breath of fresh air that America is in need of, but I'm not sure if I help the cause by pretending to be American an signing. So I can only encourage others to sign.

Oh, and flag the spammer, of course.

I appreciate your thought Lona, but, as long as it even takes your postcode-provided there's an option to select "Other" for state- it would be ok to sign to help the cause. I've been doing this for years! And without giving fake info.

Elizabeth Warren is the best candidate that the Dems have for President in 2016. Dems should get behind her and encourage her to run.

One woman --Elizabeth Warren-- has put so much fear in these arrogant Wall Street criminals that they're willing to spend millions to tarnish her reputation. They were successful in lobbying against her appointment as head of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau --which she played a pivotal role in creating. As far as I'm concerned, that's proof positive that she's the real deal! We have a true advocate in Elizabeth Warren. She's fighting for us, so let's fight for her! Let's not allow these greed-driven criminals do her yet another injustice.

Thanks for posting this, Angelika!
