Robert Reich: A Heartfelt Thanks To Elizabeth Warren – OpEd

By

Dear Elizabeth,

My congratulations and gratitude for your extraordinary campaign – your bold and detailed policy proposals; your eloquent advocacy of them and of your vision for America; your thoughtfulness and courage in standing up for women, for people of color, for working Americans, the poor and the oppressed; your kindness and patience in dealing with everyone (including fans who wanted selfies); your tirelessness and your decency; and your devotion to this country.

Your campaign was a model of substance and tenacity. You made your points about America’s misallocation of power, and the need for structural change, powerfully but without rancor. In a better America and at a better time, you would have sailed to victory.

You have inspired – and continue to inspire – millions. Thank you for everything you’ve done, and will continue to do.

Bob

    “SUSPEND” was the word Elizabeth Warren used when she pulled out of the presidential race. Did she choose that word carefully? With so many primaries yet to vote (including mine in WA state; scheduled for this Tuesday, March 10th), is it POSSIBLE that her supporters can rally the popular vote and convince her to come back into the presidential race? Her recent interviews did not sound like a woman who has conceded.
