A Soupçon to the Right of Bernie

Today, we say hail and farewell to Elizabeth Warren. Many things will be said about her various errors. All of those things will be said, by everyone who could possibly say them, as many times as they could possibly be said.

I remain of the view that Warren picked a political space—a soupçon to the right of Bernie—that turned out not to be occupied by very many voters. Having made that choice, she was, I think, doomed to lose, no matter what she did or didn’t do.

But she is a good and decent person, not to mention a highly capable person. She still has many good things ahead of her.

And, at the right time, I think we can look to her to help persuade progressive voters to swallow Bernie’s loss and get behind Biden.
