Rachel Maddow is my favorite journalist, because she weaves many distinct parts of a news story together in a way that they all make sense. Fortunately we also have a politician who does the same thing with a policy plan that Rachel does with news. Elizabeth Warren addressed students at American University on Thursday for 35 minutes.

If it hasn't been clear before this regime took over, it certainly should be crystal clear now: there are more ways of being "in the Whit House" than just being behind the desk in the Oval Office (and not all of those ways even have names.) I totally concur she is needed there. I will be happy with any position that gets her there. And the same applies to a number of others.

I also feel (a) it is too early to settle on any one person for any particular role, and (b) it is never a good idea to pressure people to run for a position they don't want. I believe the expression is that it's necessary to have "fire in the belly."

Ms. Warren bring it on! She has a lot of experience, and is a person who isn't afraid to speak her mind, and stands up for the issues today, & also to look at for guidance in the state of affairs we're at now.

We have some good folks that are doing what's right,....and that is refreshing!

She is at the top of my list for presidential nominees, alongside Bernie.  But the claim that i;m sure will come from the idiot right, regarding Bernie, that he is a communist, will have even less apparent stickiness with Liz.  She is so good at explaining, describing a reality that resonates with evidence, rather than delusion!

You're absolutely right, TC...both of these women are STELLAR at explaining the complicated and making it clear! We're lucky to have them!

The absence of voices like unions, environmentalists, etc. for including those kinds of issues in trade agreements aggravates the hollowing out which only serves the global corporate interests temporarily and serves no nation's economy well. Glad Warren is speaking to that kind of need and perhaps helping her party to see how Clintonian foreign policy and trade policy failed the rest of us (NAFTA was Bill, remember, and Hilary had a hand in the shape of TPP negotiations).

thanks, I , too, love Rachel Maddow and Elizabeth Warren …..but I am not so negative on prior democratic leaders like some...they did the best they could at the time and a lot better than anyone with an R after their name in my lifetime

Excellent speech. I agree with everyone else that Senator Warren is one that is truly needed in our White House. I have high respect for her. She's always been one to spoke truth and fought back at tRump's garbage.
Hope she does run for President. If not maybe will consider running with Bernie Sanders?
Thanks TomCat

Excellent speech, Senator Warren. Worthy of an American president.

But I would live up to my credentials as PP’s foreign (and lecturing) correspondent if I didn’t remark on one aspect. I need to be careful not to tread on too many American toes when I say that Warren is absolutely right in noting “that policies that undermine working families in this country, also erode America’s strength in the world,” but that she also thinks of this strength as being the number one power in the world, leading the way on every possible front, like many Americans do.

Time has changed things on that front too, however, and that change also set in long before Drumpf came on the scene. New powers have arisen and old ones are regaining strength because they recognise this and change with it in the right direction. Americans will have to learn to share power with others if this world is to survive, and Senator Warren should take care to incorporate those new settings in her foreign policy to make them truly progressive.

News here on the closing of the G20 meeting was that Drumpf opposed every agreement made there and after long nights of discussion among diplomats forced the other 19 countries to end with half-hearted, empty statements on trade.

G20 leaders agree on trade, migration but not climate change, with Donald Trump the lone holdout.


European Union officials said the United States was the main holdout on nearly every issue. (ABC news)

The G19 will now continue their talks on climate change and the ways they will fill in their part of the Paris agreement next week in Poland. Without America. Drumpf’s Nationalism is isolating the US and diminishing its strength on the world stage. It is not unlikely the other 19 countries will refuse to play this game at their next summit. Warren’s progressive foreign policy better be prepared for a whole new playing field.

“In other words,” she concluded, “it’s time to create a foreign policy that works for all Americans, not just the rich and powerful. Authoritarianism is on the move around the world, there is no time to waste.”

I like Senator Warren and think she would make an excellent POTUS. However, I found myself a bit taken aback at her comment “create a foreign policy that works for all Americans” because foreign policy is the basis for relationships with other nations. There has to be some give and take. It cannot be in absolutes. Maybe I am hearing something that is not there, I do not know.

The first thing on the trip forward is to get rid of Diaper Don and Republicans.

Resist, Persist, Remove!!!

Lock HIM up!!!

Silence is Consent!!!
