I agree in general with Reich. But I believe Warren has appropriated Sanders’ best ideas and corrupted them with Capitalist principles. I believe she will be more vulnerable to Trump/Republican attacks because she is tethered to the system (she was a Republican, after all), unlike Sanders, whose entire life has been devoted to lifting up the poor and working class and civil rights of marginalized peoples.
That will be a disaster of the history which will make Michael Dukasis look like a hero.
Robert Reich is an academic. I has run for office and possibly does not know what the voters' psyche looks for. Personality for presidential candidates in paramount. His plans, policies and all other good things come later. That is the general rule.
Look at what is happening in Britain. Tony Blair returned labor to victory and beat Thatcher's once popular party repeatedly because he was a good looking, dynamic leader. Look at how Jeremy Corbyn is leading labor now. He is a lackluster and unappealing candidate and Boris Johnson is going to win. All media are predicting.
Elizabeth can win on own. A spirited debate between the Orange and Pocahontas will draw huge viewership. Warren will get an opportunity to settle the score. Bernie Sanders will not win alone or with Warren. He should retire. He should create or join a think-thank. He has an absent minded professor personality. I personally do not want him represent America as my leader, the leader of the only super power and the leader of the free world.
