Elizabeth Warren steals show at 2020 audition

It was Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) who ultimately won the day with a full-throated assertion of the need for Democrats to hew closely to a base she characterized as “angry and scared” about President Trump’s impact on the nation.

Warren argued at the Center for American Progress’s (CAP) Ideas Conference that the Democratic Party is “the party of ideas.”

But she added, “The sad truth is, most of these ideas won’t go anywhere unless we deal with the defining crisis of this moment in our history … Democracy is crumbling around us.”
