Sen.-elect Elizabeth Warren makes her debut in super-awkward press conference

posted at 4:06 pm on November 9, 2012 by Mary Katharine Ham

While we’re evaluating and recriminating, parsing the failures of our own side, perhaps this can offer a small bit of solace— a quantum, even. On the heels of her victory over Sen. Scott Brown Tuesday, Sen.-elect Elizabeth Warren, Ivy League stand-out and star of the liberal elite who may very well be dictating the rules of the nation’s entire banking system, held her first press conference.

Even the Boston Globe noticed her apparent incomplete comprehension of the idea of questions and answers:

It was a bit of a rough start for Senator-­elect Elizabeth Warren, who held her first official press conference following her victory Tuesday. Suddenly, the voluble Harvard Law School professor and longtime media commentator sounded uncertain and impatient, offering terse answers to questions about ­fiscal policy and the success of women candidates.

The performance was called “jittery” by the Boston Herald. You’re not kiddin’. Take a look at what the jitters can do:

“I’m glad” was all she said when asked to expound on the support she ­received from women voters and on the influx of women elected Tuesday. Asked to elaborate, she refused, saying: “I’m glad that women turned out to vote for me. I’m delighted.”

Asked a third time, Warren turned to Governor Deval Patrick, who was standing at her side at the State House press conference. “You want to try this?” she said.

She offered no opinion on avoiding the “fiscal cliff” or protecting defense spending from sequestration, a question she also oddly lobbed to Patrick, who protected her:

After being asked her first question — how she’d protect defense spending — Warren was silent as she turned to Patrick.

“Defense spending is you,” Patrick prodded Warren.

“Oh, that’s mine,” Warren replied.

After Warren fielded the question, Patrick stepped in to answer the follow-up.

“Let me start,” said Patrick, shielding Warren from having to answer.

Another Globe writer, Brian McGrory, bristled, warning Warren that holding the people’s seat means answering to the people.

The Herald called in an expert to evaluate possible causes of Warren’s odd showing, which I appreciate because if this is the kind of candidate the Oprah-ization of elections creates, then let’s go full Oprah:

U.S. Sen.-elect Elizabeth Warren’s jittery first press conference since the election was likely a combination of the political neophyte’s exhaustion and caution as she gets ready to head to Washington, D.C., to take on the high-stakes job, according to a political observer.

“She’s been concentrating so hard on the campaign, I’m sure she’s pretty tired,” said John C. Berg, a political science professor at Suffolk University. “I also think she doesn’t want to go into the Senate having made commitments she regrets.”

Her response to the response to her weird press conference is also weird:

After a press conference in which she brushed aside several questions with terse answers Thursday, Elizabeth Warren gave an explanation for her reticence. Speaking to a handful of reporters after the press conference, she said she must be more discreet now that she is making the transition from candidate to senator-elect.

“Listen, all I can say is I was a lot more discreet as a candidate than I was in real life,” she said after meeting with Massachusetts House Speaker Robert A. DeLeo at the State House.

Turning to a press aide, she said: “Can I say that? Maybe it’s indiscreet to talk about discretion.”

It is odd. I don’t agree with her, but she was perfectly capable of simply talking on the campaign trail, which is a far more grueling environment, even for a Democrat in Massachusetts, than one’s inaugural press conference. She was all but guaranteed utterly expected questions and softballs, but she was asked the women question five times before she could even revert to basic talking points.

To be fair, I guess she’s still one up on this guy.

Here’s the video, although this is only part of it. I’ll keep looking for more.

To be fair, maybe she’s trying a new messaging strategy modeled on another famous effort pioneered by her ancestors— something like this.

And, just because, I’ll take the chance to fragrantly flog this, which I made this spring—Ken Burns Presents: Elizabeth Warren’s Campaign Trail of Tears

I live in Massachusetts. She’s cut from the same cloth as Obama. Slept through the system, bouyed by affirmative action policies, and generally mediocre in talent. Hand selected by the administration to be a leftist populist stooge and vote the party line. That’s why she couldn’t answer any questions, she wasn’t selected to think on her own or independently answer questions, just vote with good ‘ol Harry.

You saw exactly what representation MA will have in the upper chamber.

Sure they can claim the party affiliation in ads, and should! But removing the affiliation from the ballot would prevent low-information voters from stealing the election by voting straight ticket without knowing the candidates and what they stand for.

You argue that the War on Terror has been an enormous waste of lives and resources and that we’re failing to care for mental and physical needs of veterans at home. You talk about the importance of keeping troops employed by re-deploying them within border security, getting the army corps of engineers working on infrastructure.

Believe this at your own peril. Republican hostility to academia helped Obama kick Romney’s a** on voter ID and turnout this campaign.

…when it comes to the use of voter data and analytics, the two sides appear to be as unmatched as they have ever been on a specific electioneering tactic in the modern campaign era. No party ever has ever had such a durable structural advantage over the other on polling, making television ads, or fundraising, for example. And the reason may be that the most important developments in how to analyze voter behavior has not emerged from within the political profession.

“The left has significantly broadened its perspective on political behavior,” says Adam Schaeffer, who earned graduate degrees in both evolutionary psychology and political behavior before launching a Republican opinion-research firm, Evolving Strategies. “I’m jealous of them.”

Schaeffer attributes the imbalance to the mutual discomfort between academia and conservative political professionals, which has limited Republicans’ ability to modernize campaign methods. The biggest technical and conceptual developments these days are coming from the social sciences, whose more practically-minded scholars regularly collaborate with candidates and interest groups on the left. As a result, the electioneering right is suffering from what amounts to a lost generation; they have simply failed to keep up with advances in voter targeting and communications since Bush’s re-election. The left, meanwhile, has arrived at crucial insights that have upended the conventional wisdom about how you convert citizens to your cause. Right now, only one team is on the field with the tools to most effectively find potential supporters and win their votes.
