Well fought, Senator.

Finally she woke up and smelled the blunt.

“All those little girls who are going to have to wait four more years," Warren told reporters outside her home in Cambridge, Massachusetts, as her voice cracked. “That's going to be hard.”

Yeah because voting for someone based on their race and or gender is the solution to sexism and racism.

Once again the left show how devoid they are of any logical capabilities. It's always emotions over logic, truth over facts.

She should also know she's a part of the Democratic party. The least diverse, most racist party in history

The next American president will be either Trump or Biden. People say Trump is likely to win but viewing the result of Super Tuesday, it will not be a sure thing. Super Tuesday result shows Biden's middle of the road is getting support of people. I felt Trump's extreminism is losing support of people. Trump's role is over. Toxin is enough with four years.

And then back in the real world (aka the 116th congress)

Female senators: 131 (D 107 | R 24)

African American senators: 56 (D 54 | R 2)

Latino senators: 50 (D 40 | R 10)

Asian/Pacific Island senators: 20 (D 19 | R 1)

The democratic party. Also, as we've witnessed this last week, they're not very democratic either.

I've said it before. I'll say it again- Bernie is the only one who can beat trump. but it looks like the democrats are going to run Biden against him and we'll  have a repeat of 2016. May very well be a second term for trump. looking more and more likely.

should, ve done that three days ago ... the timing s-cks ( Pete “something” was even worse, he knew what he was doing... ) ... Bernie can,t be happy with that ... this probably cost him the nomination ...... the establishment stinks already ...

Warren didn't rush to endorse either Sanders or Biden.

Joe may appear to be the lead for the moment, but Bernie's people aren't going allow that to happen nor are they going to allow the convention to screw Bernie out of the nomination. It's going to be a very nasty fight at the convention and there will be a brokered convention.

Warren and her supporters are now the wild card and hedging their bet and angling on who to align with. Hint: It won't be Biden or Sanders.

Yes, it would be great to see a female (Democratic) President of the United States, but Warren is going to have to accept that a majority of the members of her own party, presumably including the female ones, don’t want her to be that woman.

Right decision, Biden has come back stronger, and it’s a 2 candidate race now.

I wish she endorses Bernie though.

If Warren had quit when Buttigig, and the others, had quit, Bernie would have been in much shape, delegate-wise. I wonder if Bernie will thank Warren by making her is vice president?

-5 ( +2 / -7 )

I was told at the beginning of this whole undertaking that there are two lanes, a progressive lane that Bernie Sanders is the incumbent for and a moderate lane that Joe Biden is the incumbent for

Yep and that rift is what is destroying the Dem team, old school corrupt Dems like Biden Hilary Bill and Obama, and the new freebie socialist alternative like Berns who appeals to the millennials Its the Dems own fault; they started this radical left wing shift. Strange that looney tunes Liz is blaming her loss on the change, she is part of it also.

So much identity politics from Conservatives here.

All D Trump has to do now, is keep his mouth shut, and like the rest of us, watch the Dem team self implode, and his next 4 years is almost guaranteed. Its a bit concerning that Berns could rally the immigrant and young college folks, but I think their numbers are not there.

Biden is too senile and emotional; a few rounds and an embarrassing ending for him as Trump pounces. Sanders is so far out there, more or less the same ending. The only one that could be a challenge to Trump is Bloomberg, he has the money and experience, he has played on both teams. Not much of a debater but I think he has moves. The Dems should of backed him but they have no common sense.

Biden will be fine debating Trump. It's not like he's going up against someone with solid control over the English language.

I predict Biden will win both the popular vote and the EC.

-1 ( +6 / -7 )

She needs to endorse Bernie, if she is really a progressive and Bernie needs to put her on his VP slot, THEN he can easily win these other states, and it will be bye bye Biden, whose voting record on EVERY social issue mirrors a republican! He is funded by fossil fuels, BIG Pharma, credit card industries, now if you like government by bribery, well Trump and Biden are your men. It is time the government be BY the people and FOR the people, but I am sure some "conservative posters" have a REAL problem with that.

Except that it's not. You people don't like to acknowledge the fact that the people haaaaaaate Trump, and after four years of him, they're ready to unite to boot him to the curb.

These are the primaries. It's where the party discusses internal issues. There's no rift, just a race for leadership.

-1 ( +4 / -5 )

People seem to forget that Tulsi Gabbard is still in the race. Young, strong, anti-war veteran, religious minority, with a plan. Yet the establishment democrats want to paint her as a "Russian asset". How very progressive of them. She didn't play ball back in 2016 after the rigged primary against Bernie then, and they have been sour about it ever since.

But realistically, they smeared her image, and now she won't be the choice. She's young though, and will have four years to plan for the next one.

I almost feel sorry for Liz.... Not! She didn't fail because she is an old, very wealthy, white woman of ~1/1024th native American ancestry, but rather that her ideology is anathema to the majority of even current democrats. KAG!

No conspiracy theory as to why she dropped out?

How disappointing.

-1 ( +3 / -4 )

Warren always had a whiff of ambiguity about her "left" credentials which created a cloud of suspicion for people looking for a truly progressive candidate. If she "has a plan" for Bernie and endorses him, it would be a "quid pro quo" that would benefit the Dems yugely since Trump will probably dump his tailor's dummy and select a woman to appeal to the distaff electorate. But every day Liz dithers, her trustworthiness takes a hit.

People say Trump is likely to win but viewing the result of Super Tuesday, it will not be a sure thing.

Of the fourteen states voting on Super Tuesday, Biden got ten, Sanders got four and Trump got all fourteen. Trump was running essentially unopposed yet Republican turnout and vote count broke records in a number of blue and key swing states. This would seem to indicate that the Republicans are pretty well organized and have a good ability to turn out the vote. Which bodes well for 2020.

Tuesday result shows Biden's middle of the road is getting support of people.

Not necessarily, but what it does show is that the power elite of the Democratic Party coordinated a successful effort to revive Biden's frontrunner position and stymie Sanders. Mayor Pete and Amy's sudden dropping out and lining up behind Biden is clearly the result of a negotiated settlement. Their rewards will be coming in future political endeavors. Even Warren's hanging on and then dropping out after the vote smacks of political finagling. Not only did she potentially draw off voters who might have leaned towards Bernie but now she has set herself up as a kind of king maker with an eye on a place in a Biden administration. Garrens Ball Barrens.

 I felt Trump's extreminism is losing support of people. 

As amazing as it may seem Trump's support is at an all time high. For many Americans the political left is the one that is becoming increasingly extreme. As the Democrats lurch farther and farther leftward they have left the comfort zone of many Americans far behind. The majority of Americans self identify as "moderate" with about 30 percent of Americans calling themselves "conservative". Trump promotes and advocates for policies that a surprising number of Americans agree with and for those people he is anything but extreme.

It's clearly a case of moderates/centrists in the race supporting the other moderate/centrist. Yawn.

There are no centrists left in the Democrat party. Not a single pro-choice Democrat is welcome. All that’s left are Socialists (Biden) and neo-Marxists (Bernie). The cream of the Super Delegates crop are pulling out all the stops to derail Sanders just like they did in 2016. The establishment candidate now is Biden rather than Hillary. Putting the fix in strategy didn’t pay off very well four years ago. The Bernie Brigades are getting angry again.

The party of diversity is the party of choice led white heterosexual men. Good luck getting BLM and generation Z to turn out for him.

-1 ( +2 / -3 )

Although she's no longer a presidential contender, Warren will likely remain a force in Democratic politics and could play a prominent role in a future administration if the party wins the White House. 

Thats already driven Donny into a panic, not only will Biden or Sanders undo everything his corrupt administration did, he has to deal with Warren going after him.

Time for Donny to call up his buddy Putin for either more information or asylum!!!!

So why did Warren drop out? Why didn’t she stay in to further hobble Sanders?

It’s pretty much going to end badly for the Democrats. Just now on Trucker Democrats we’re voicing deep, deep concern with Biden and not having all of his faculties ans losing to Trump and at the same time, going with Bernie could destroy the entire Democrat party and have them lose everything including the House. Sanders should win California easily, but Biden has the backing and money of the establishment. Well, it should be fun to watch both sides go at each other.

During the first rounds of Dem debates, some of the more younger Dem candidates were tripping up Biden left and right; he is senile and unfit to be president, and his corrupt sons legacy is now an open book for us to read. Trump will destroy, no worries about that. Biden reps for the old dem club, who havent done nothing for decades. Useless.

She's still my choice.

But realistically, they smeared her image, and now she won't be the choice. She's young though, and will have four years to plan for the next one.

Tulsi and mayor Pete are young and bright but not well connected and no experience. Sorry, being a Vet doesnt qualify; thats just more of the same pandering. The old Dem and Repub paradigms are dated, and Trump was the answer to both. He is the most fit to continue the trajectory the US is on. Change is needed, but its too risky to put an inexperienced millennial in right now.

0 ( +3 / -3 )

where the Dems went wrong, IMO, is there pandering to people of color, women, immigrants, gay and trans etc, while not really coming in with a sensible plan. Some tried to make a break from the old school Dem establishment, but they just ended up pandering promises to specific groups, and essentially that is racist people were left with an uneasy, fake feeling. Only young impressionable people buy that; the rest can see it for what it is, its risky and dangerous. I expect more of this from Berns, Biden will just become a clown show of incompetence.

What the “nutters” are trying to say is that all lives matter - not just certain ones required to get Dems elected. Dems don’t believe all people are people- they believe some people require inferior treatment (ie discrimination) and people of the wrong race are morally inferior (white privilege theory). The Democrat party has always been the party of racial incitement. Warren exemplified this identitarian preoccupation.

No one is scared but the Democrats, every Dem on virtually every network are so frightened of the prospect that Trump will badly beat either Biden or Sanders. You guys were saying that Trump is going to be indicted by Mueller, you guys said that Trump was going to be impeached and now you guys say that Warren or Pete will take Trump, none of that happened and now you guys think Biden or Sanders will take Trump?

Then, tell us if the Democrats are right to block Trump along partisan lines.
