Wayne Lesperance: Elizabeth Warren has emerged as the darling of progressives. With encouragement and support from other national Democrats like Howard Dean, there will be a strong push for her to run in 2016. And for those who do not think Hillary Clinton is progressive enough, Warren serves as a strong alternative. Still, there’s little evidence she is interested in running at this point.

Phil Boynton: It all depends on Hillary.

Dante Scala: If no Hillary, meet 2016’s Howard Dean. She could raise a ton of money, but could she build a coalition outside progressive circles?

Brandon Lemay: She has a lot of support from young voters, which has shown to be a powerful demographic in this age.

If presented with Clinton and Warren, I'd have a tough time choosing today. Warren is probably too progressive for most Americans, which is why I love her, but I want the person I vote for to have a decent chance against whomever the Republicans put up. I don't think she could win against a mainstream Repub. Glad the election is still 2 years away.

Elizabeth is a phony. She abused EEOC on her application, claiming, without proof that she was a Native American. Her ideology is sick "you didn't build that". Dangerous, un-American and out for ideological fulfillment, not representation of the people or following the Constitution.
