WAR­REN UPS THE ANTE

The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS -

Repub­li­can Party ob­servers say that Sen. El­iz­a­beth War­ren has just em­barked on a tour to pro­mote her new book, “This Fight is Our Fight: The Bat­tle for Amer­ica’s Mid­dle Class.” But she is re­ceiv­ing tepid re­views for her work, in­tended as a way to bur­nish her po­lit­i­cal brand and pre­pare for 2018 midterm elec­tions and a pos­si­ble 2020 pres­i­den­tial run. The GOP ob­servers cite a few suc­cinct ex­am­ples of those re­views. Among them: The At­lantic said the au­thor prac­tices “faux folksi­ness” in the book, and side­steps her own role in Demo­cratic Party mis­takes that con­trib­uted to Hil­lary Clin­ton’s loss of the White House. The Bos­ton Globe noted “all the ma­te­rial she left out,” adding, “the Mas­sachusetts senator trains her scrappy prose on cor­po­ra­tions and Repub­li­cans while no­tably pulling her punches on the Demo­cratic Party’s stun­ning fail­ures of 2016.”
