  •  However, she is only 1% of the Senate... (3+ / 0-)

    The bully pulpit is worth more than 1% if she were to win it.

    I agree that we need good laws written but if they do not get the support they need, they are worthless.  We need a champion in the oval office and I do not see a better candidate as of yet.  I certainly would like to find one though (and since I am not an advocate of Hillary, it will have to be somebody else).

    Here is my ideal candidate:

    1.) Someone willing to suggest universal healthcare because it will save money and provide better care.

    2.) Someone who will reform the tax code to treat all income as earned income and apply payroll taxes to it.

    3.) Someone who will renegotiate "FAIR" trade laws instead of the "free" trade laws we currently are abused by.

    4.) Someone who will equally prosecute all law breakers instead of just poor ones.

    5.)  Someone who is not afreadi to go after the corporations who are feeding off the teats of America while demanding austerity for the working poor.

    I think Ms. Warren is the best candidate for 3 through 5 and possibly 1 & 2 as well.
