Why I don't trust Elizabeth Warren
Don't get me wrong. Elizabeth Warren is much better than the Blue Dogs and Third Way Dems.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren said she believes that the Democratic National Committee was "rigged" in favor of former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton during the 2016 primary.
Asked Thursday by CNN's Jake Tapper whether she believes that the Democratic campaign organization was tipped in favor of Clinton over her primary opponent, independent Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, Warren responded without hesitation: "Yes."
Later that same day:
“The process was rigged and now it is up to Democrats to build a new process, a process that really works and works for everyone,” Warren said, adding that .people need to have confidence in the integrity of the system.

When asked by New York Times reporter Jeremy Peters who the leader of the party was, Warren said, "the grassroots," adding, "I mean, you can either get in front of it and call it a parade, or you can stand to the side and be left behind."
...“Would you argue that it is that the Democratic party needs inspirational leaders and I mean why wouldn’t you say that you’re one of them?” Brzezinski asked.
“Look there are a lot of us out there fighting, but my point is we really need people in this fight on the taxes right now," Warren responded.
We've seen this before
Who is its leader, the host asked, indirectly referencing the reality that voters have relegated Democrats to minority status virtually everywhere but a small handful of states. The first two names to pop into Pelosi's mind were an ex-president who decimated the party over his tenure in office, and a failed presidential candidate who managed to lose to an allegedly unelectable opponent.
