The support for Warren continues to swell barely below the surface. Don’t discount her running, despite her current obfuscations.

Elizabeth Warren is precisely what Republicans need in a presidential opponent. A face off with Ted Cruz, and any of several other Republicans, would be epic.

A collectivist agenda contrasted with a personal freedom agenda. Cruz is not the only Republican who can draw that contrast, but as of this moment, he is the focal point.

For once, we would have a clear choice.

No move to the middle we usually see. No silencing of criticism through racial politics. An ideological fight over the future in which the lines will have been drawn.
