Bernie Sanders is clearly leading in the delegate count, but Bloomberg looms high in the polls without even having appeared yet on any ballot so far. Bloomberg is the more immediate threat, especially considering that Bernie may lead, but may have difficulty getting the outright majority needed to win a nomination (hardly the “will of the people” if there are more voters against you than for you — the reason we have runoff elections, even if, in a convention, they are called “multiple ballots”).
Elizabeth Warren is no enemy of Sanders, though she has a proven track record of far greater technical knowledge of financial and economic issues and which buttons to push and levers to pull to effect real change, and more and greater accomplishments in a far shorter political career (since most of her life was in the real world, addressing the real problems of real people).
So Warren was clearly right to make her primary target the racist, sexist, anti-worker (opposes the minimum wage), anti-consumer (opposed Wall $treet and bank$ter reform during the 2008 Bush economic meltdown), the common adversary of herself and Bernie, though she has clearly proven she is far better equipped to deal with such adversaries.
Some of the memes I’ve seen in the wake of Elizabeth Warren’s total skewering of Michael Bloomberg, and her total domination of Wednesday’s debate:
Bloomberg got STOPPED AND FRISKED by Elizabeth Warren.
Bloomberg wishes that what happened in Vegas would stay in Vegas.
Survivor was on Wednesday night, and Bloomberg got voted off the island.
With apologies to Helen Reddy … I am WARREN hear me roar.
Most important, Warren has demonstrated that she is by far the best positioned to do the same to New York pseudo-billionaire Trump what she did to real billionaire Michael Bloomberg.
