Elizabeth Warren Drops Out of Presidential Race as Campaign Against Trump Bites the Dust

She was excess baggage. Now the Left will coalesce around Sanders.

Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, after a dismal showing on Super Tuesday, dropped out of the race Thursday morning.

This leaves the field almost clear for a moderate versus Left clash between Biden and Sanders.

Though many forget, Tulsi Gabbard is still in the race.

Warren’s campaign was a mess from its very beginning. Her fake Native American claim, her beer drinking fiasco, her screeching feminism, all made her radioactive to mentally competent voters, even liberal females.

Now the Left will rally around Sanders and present a united front against Biden. Also, as Sanders is strengthened after the Biden boom by Warren’s probable endorsement, Trump wins because anything that keeps the balance of power uncertain in the Democratic Party helps the president.

Do you think Elizabeth Warren should retract her claim of being Native American?

On an inside angle, the Warren campaign was another example of a phenomenon this political season: blatant malpractice by political consultants.

Both Warren and Bloomberg hired teams that got their possible appeal and their message all wrong. And they no doubt paid big money, especially Bloomberg, for that very bad counsel. At least in the case of Warren, it looks like they put ideology over operations.

A rookie mistake. Bloomberg’s people tried to run against Donald Trump without first getting the Democratic nomination.

Now it’s an old west showdown at noon on Main Street between Biden and Sanders for the soul of the Democratic Party.

Do they keep some semblance of sanity and go with Biden, as it looks right now, or do they double down on the growing wave of socialism amongst their hard left faction and go for broke?

That is a question that will be likely decided before the month is out.
