Senator Elizabeth Warren’s (D-MA) 2020 presidential campaign was off to a rocky start before it even began after gaffes and missteps made her look disingenuous about her heritage. Then, she started pushing positions that were to the left of the field in an attempt to position herself as the radical progressive choice. Now, she’s facing a minor controversy over a decision the campaign made to not hold high-dollar fundraising events.
Her campaign’s finance director, Michael Pratt, is leaving the campaign after the decision was made o forgo such events against his advice.

This is a smart move for both Pratt and the campaign. It’s a smart move for Pratt because the campaign is going nowhere. It’s a smart move for the campaign because at this point, she’s so far behind in the money race and fifth in polling, meaning she needs to differentiate herself even more.
The biggest problem with all of the current major candidates is that they’re all sounding effectively the same. There are few points in which they differ, and when I say “few” I actually don’t know of any. I just assume there must be something that makes them different. If they’re all pushing socialism, all supporting Medicare-for-All, the Green New Deal, open borders, and are against any semblance of law and order, how do we tell them apart?
Answer: We can’t.
Thankfully for readers of NOQ Report, it’s unlikely many of you are going to be voting in the Democratic primaries, so it’s pretty much a moot point. Grab the popcorn and watch the sideshow.
“You know, in life, there are some people who have more money, there are some people who have less money. But everybody should have an equal share of our democracy.” – Elizabeth Warren
The only real chance Warren has of making an impact in the election is to debate well and hope everyone else is on drugs at the time. She’s not likable nor does she draw much sympathy. That makes her Hillary Clinton 2.0.
