The 2020 Democratic power rankings

(5) Elizabeth Warren. The tragic lesson of nearly all failed military campaigns is “too late.” The same applies to politics. Warren should have taken on Hillary Clinton in 2016, but either she didn’t want to or she misjudged Clinton’s strength.

Since then she was outbid in her progressivism by the socialist from Vermont. There was the Native-American debacle. Chris Cillizza and Harry Enten have her as their overall No. 1, but I’m not buying it. Warren is now polling at 5 percent, that’s 1 point ahead of Harris and 3 points behind—behind—Betomania.

That’s not what it looks like when voters are pining for you to run.
