Warren emerges as potential compromise nominee

EXCERPT:

There was a time not so long ago when leading Democrats warned that Elizabeth Warren’s “fantasy-based blue-state populism” risked leading the party to ruin.

But in a revealing tell of how far her campaign has come since its early February launch, some unlikely voices in the center of the party are growing more comfortable with the idea of Warren as the nominee.

It’s a sign of how the ideological lanes of the 2020 primary have blurred and overlapped and of the steady progress Warren is making as a candidate. But it’s also a statement on Bernie Sanders, Warren’s top rival for progressive votes. Sanders continues to face significant resistance from within the party — and nowhere more so than among the moderates and establishment players who blanch at his talk of democratic socialism.

Warren, on the other hand, is gaining traction among those who once rejected her muscular vision of liberalism. She’s drawn notice for her wide-ranging “I have a plan for that” policy playbook, which has just enough growth-and-opportunity, center-left measures to earn her a serious look from former detractors. The Massachusetts senator may be out of sync with party centrists, but she’s drawn at least one sharp line with Sanders that is resonating with prominent moderate voices as she surges into the top tier in national and early state polls.

“One is a Democratic capitalist narrative,” said Matt Bennett, a co-founder of Third Way, a centrist think tank that convened a conference of party insiders in South Carolina this week designed to warn about the risks of a nominee whose views are out of the political mainstream. “The other is a socialist narrative.”

My wife and I bought a “places rated almanac” long ago as we were just playing around a little regarding where people thought the best place to live would be. The selection was based on a point system of something like 20-25 different factors. Sounds good, but if a city did poorly with “traffic” and “crime” and “commute” and “attitudes” or basically dropped off the radar because everything was weighted equally.

The best place then? Cincinnati. It was rated absolutely mediocre in everything but not horrible at anything. Thus, #1. That’s what’s going on with Warren here IMO. The democrat pool is so bad that she’s backing into the nomination despite her incredibly dull, unaccomplished campaign that’s counting on her not having anything really bad (well there’s 1 thing out of 1024...) and using her female Santa Claus promises to buy votes.

Lowest common denominator mediocrity.

The benefits of situational ethics: parse at the subatomic level and any apparent inconsistency can be explained away.

Actually, it's one of the qualifications for the job. None of the Left's candidates who won House seats in the mid terms ran on impeaching Trump, but look at 'em go...
