Still, I have not written off Elizabeth Warren as either a Democratic stooge or a corporate pawn. I find the accusations without substance to the point of absurdity. I believe she is sincere in wanting to fundamentally turn the system over so that it favors the little guy instead of the elite. I believe she stands with Bernie.
I also believe the best chance of beating Trump in the general election an imperative for anyone who values climate change, universal healthcare and the principles of equal justice and democracy lies with the progressive left.
At this juncture, that means Sanders or Warren must defeat Biden. That the party powers are taking aim at Warren suggests that they are afraid. If they are afraid, she's on the right track.
