'Warren’s proposals are serious, based on work by top scholars. She is a believer in a market economy, regulated to keep it from being rigged, and in corporations that contribute to the well-being of all: One of America’s biggest problems is the collapse of the working class and the lower middle class, with suicide at a 30-year high and drug and alcohol abuse causing life expectancy to fall.

And while she’s no expert on foreign policy, her instincts on avoiding war with Iran and showing concern for Palestinians  seem good ones. I was deeply skeptical of Elizabeth Warren. I now believe I was wrong on each count, Warren has become the gold standard for a policy-driven candidate, and whether or not she wins, she’s performing a public service by helping frame the debate.'
