The senator from Massachusetts is delivering a well-developed and stinging critique of Republican extremism -- and Ted Cruz's whining.

The campaigns of former secretary of state Hillary Clinton and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders are engaged in another tiresome argument over what will happen months from now, after primaries and caucuses identify a clear winner of the race for elected delegates to the Democratic National Convention.

Anticipating his overwhelming defeat in Tuesday's New York Republican primary, Cruz started the week by offering his supporters a fine whine.

Pleading with "Team Cruz" to recognize the "significant sacrifice" he was making on their behalf, the senator from Texas complained in an e-mail, "There is almost no personal time when you run for president," and griped that "Fighting morning and night for the future of our country ensures long nights and early mornings resulting in little to no sleep."

The Texan suggested that his health might be impacted by a busy campaign schedule. And, not surprisingly, he whined that "I face a constant barrage of political and personal attacks daily."

Cruz has always been the most self-important presidential contender -- on either side of the partisan divide -- and so it was only a matter of time before he got taken down a few notches.

What's striking is the way in which Warren did the job.

She did not just note the Republican contender's bellyaching. She put it in perspective.

"Are you kidding me? We're supposed to pity him because trying to be the leader of the free world is hard?!" Warren wrote on Facebook and Twitter. "I've got two words for you, Ted: Boo hoo."
