There’s a per­sis­tent bleep on the pres­i­den­tial radar, and that would be Sen. El­iz­a­beth War­ren, now get­ting cast in the role of a stealth can­di­date who could po­ten­tially up­stage Hil­lary Clin­ton’s strate­gic ad­vance to the White House in 2016. Re­cent pesky news cov­er­age has not been the best for Mrs. Clin­ton, and there’s fa­tigue among vot­ers who just can’t deal with an­other round of the po­ten­tial pres­i­den­tial hope­ful’s perky rein­ven­tion.

Mean­while, the Mas­sachusetts Demo­crat is on the move. She’s writ­ten “A Fight­ing Chance”, a well re­ceived mem­oir, pub­lished well be­fore Mrs. Clin­ton’s “Hard Choices”. Ms. War­ren is bid­ing her time, lioness-like, in the “tall grass” as her ri­val floun­ders, ac­cord­ing to Thomas Lif­son, edi­tor of The Amer­i­can Thinker.

“Se­na­tor War­ren owes her left-wing hero sta­tus to the Demo­cratic ver­sion of pop­ulism. She’s been talk­ing for years about how the well-con­nected ‘rig the sys­tem’ for their own ben­e­fit,” says synid­cated colum­nist Jonah Gold­berg. “Which is why War­ren is per­fectly poised to be the Obama of 2016. And the role of Hil­lary Clin­ton will be played by Hil­lary Clin­ton.”
