|President Elizabeth Warren 2016?|
Her takeaway from defeating Republican Sen. Scott Brown in 2012 has a similar tone.
"What is the lesson of that day? When we fight, we can win. And when we get really fired up and fight shoulder to shoulder, we can do some pretty amazing things," she writes.
"Some say the rich and powerful now control Washington and always will. I say this battle isn't over yet. True, the playing field isn't level and the system is rigged. But we're putting up a heck of a fight, and we intend to keep on fighting."
If such comments -- found throughout the book -- don't make an argument for Warren to try for the White House, here are the final two paragraphs:
No one is asking for a handout. All we want is a country where everyone pays a fair share, a country where we build opportunities for all of us, a country where everyone plays by the same rules and everyone is held accountable. And we have begun to fight for it.
I believe in us. I believe in what we can do together, in what we will do together. All we need is a fighting chance.
Warren can probably count on hearing those words come back to her many times over the coming months.
I believe Hilary Clinton has had her shot, and will not make it to the White House in 2016. The Republicans will probably have a more centrist candidate, rathern than a total outsider, and will move heaven and earth to gain traction among Hispanic votes.
Warren is bright, aggressive, a fighter, with a progressive heart and a burning desire to improve the lot of the ordinary American. She has proven her willingness and effectiveness in tackling entrenched elites to benefit ordinary people.
