Warren would be better than Clinton as president but if Clinton runs, and Warren runs, Warren will lose strictly based on popularity, and maybe experience.

It's all politics.

I like that McCain is always on the side where the win blows. He really should change his name to Two Face, Flip Flop, or better yet, Janus.

Warren is exactly correct.
The empirical results are crystal clear. Financial markets perform better for all of society with proper regulation. Without adequate regulations markets boom and bust in a disastrous fashion. The idiots who still hold the false belief that unregulated markets will produce the greatest amount equity and prosperity have been PROVEN wrong.
And yet, they won't let the fantasy go. Just like every other faith based belief, they refuse to let real world experience get in the way of their favourite daydream.

And BTW, just because sane people advocate for regulatory oversight, this does not equate to communism or total govt takeover.

Except she isn't running for president.. So far..
In fact she might just be much more effective in the senate and in a short time may be chairwoman of the banking committee.
All hail my new signature!

Admit it. You're secretly green with envy.

Mccain just blows.
The Christian church, in its attitude toward science, shows the mind of a more or less enlightened man of the Thirteenth Century. It no longer believes that the earth is flat, but it is still convinced that prayer can cure after medicine fails.

It is true that proper regulation is better than improper regulation.  The problem is that the completely and utterly uninformed cannot tell the difference between improper regulation and deregulation.

For an example of someone completely and utterly uninformed who can't tell the difference read the following:

Without adequate regulations markets boom a nd bust in a disastrous fashion. The idiots who still hold the false belief that unregulated markets will produce the greatest amount equity and prosperity have been PROVEN wrong.
And yet, they won't let the fantasy go. Just like every other faith based belief, they refuse to let real world experience get in the way of their favourite daydream.

Yes, your deity must be without blame.  So evidence that improper regulation, malregulation, does not work is to be considered evidence against deregulation.

Well golly this thread went South in a hurry. I'd vote for Liz Warren if she gets nominated. If a Republican wins, I'm moving to Uruguay and consoling myself with cheap drugs while fishing on the Rio De La Plata.

The evidence was provided by Warren herself. You should at least try to explain why we need to set empirical evidence aside and follow your daydream.
You're not even trying anymore.
