A place for Elizabeth Warren

Someone smart on the interwebs suggested a great spot for Ms. Warren. The SCOTUS. Hillary can make this happen and I'm all for it. Choke on it.

    I'd rather have her in the Senate.

    POTUS

    Just saw her railing against lobbyists and bringing up the lost rights of the working class. POTUS please.

    Might have to wait 10 years for that Scott. This is not an energy and passion you want to waste for 10 years.

    She has already stated she doesn't want to be.

    yeah, sometimes you are called, though. dryflie is probably right -- it's too soon for her -- but her day will come.

    I don't think the country is far enough left for her to win the General Election. But imagine Elizabeth Warren vs Ted Cruz. Talk about a choice.

    Then again, reasonable people, of any party, will run from this: LINK (go to 10:22). Would love to hear what sherb says about that. ROFL.

    He is attracting a lot of young people with his isolationist tendencies.

    Not that Maine is any serious indication but Paul won a recent straw poll there. http://thehill.com/blogs/ballot-box/presidential-races/204502-paul-wins-maine-straw-poll

    Screw that.

    A run for President would be nice. Watch her implode like Howard Dean or Michelle Bachmann.

    That's true. Then we would be rid of her for good.
  • fishingcomicfishingcomic Senior Member Posts: 24,255 Senior Member
    Right, because she is just as stupid and crazy as Bachmann.

    Wait just a minute. Would she be the first Native American on the SCOTUS? We really should strive for diversity, sherb.

    haha, yeah. Totally.
  • fishingcomicfishingcomic Senior Member Posts: 24,255 Senior Member
    Do you have proof that she is not some percentage of Native American? In my life I have known dozens of people that claimed it when they had less.

    She said right up front 1/32nd. And she hasn't claimed it since the '90's.

    She says some really stupid ****, Harvard professor or not.
    The whole wage/productivity thing was a joke. She'll run with any stupid idea.
  • JulietJuliet Posts: 0
    She was listed as a minority so that Harvard could tout its diversity. Do you think a person who is 1/32 anything can reasonably be considered an ethnic minority?
  • fishingcomicfishingcomic Senior Member Posts: 24,255 Senior Member
    Was that her doing or Harvard's? I understand the need to marginalize her. But this is a petty and childish way to do it.

    It is no more of a joke than trickle down and tax cuts create jobs.

    You've seen a picture of her, right? How would Harvard know about it?
  • fishingcomicfishingcomic Senior Member Posts: 24,255 Senior Member
    She listed herself as 1/32nd and they ran with it, but that is not her fault.

    Obviously you've never seen the "one drop" scene in "Show Boat", or read the Edna Ferber novel it is based on. :)

    After a Christian nations hundreds of years of killing them, now they consider it a time to recognize 1/32 of the anything for the bench?

    Well said. First intelligent post in this thread.

    Wasn't Warren the one lecturing businesses about their getting rich because "the government" paved the roads to their factories?
  • JulietJuliet Posts: 0
    yeah, she was the original purveyor of "you didn't build that."

    If "the government" didn't pave the roads who did? If "the government" hadn't granted land rights to RR companies would the trans-continental RRs exist?
