From the left: War­ren Has Be­come the Dems’ Soul

New York Post - - POST OPINION -

Sen. Bernie San­ders’ in­sur­gent pres­i­den­tial bid did not mark the mo­ment when the Demo­cratic Party moved left, con­tends Gra­ham Vyse at The New Repub­lic. “It was merely when the es­tab­lish­ment Democrats re

al­ized it had moved,” in a shift that some ob­servers ac­tu­ally pre­dicted years ear­lier. Now Sen. El­iz­a­beth War­ren is primed to be­come the party’s “new, pro­gres­sive leader,” hav­ing de­clared that she and fel­low hard-left­ists “are the heart and soul of to­day’s Demo­cratic Party.” Poll­sters con­firm that she “rep­re­sents the main­stream of Demo­cratic opin­ion” and that it will be “very dif­fi­cult for a Demo­crat to win the nom­i­na­tion . . . on any­thing but the War­ren plat­form.” But the ques­tion re­mains: “How would El­iz­a­beth War­ren play in Ohio?”
