Warren v. Cruz?

I first developed my giant crush on Elizabeth Warren in 2007, when she was on TV plugging the book she co-wrote with her daughter, Amelia Warren Tiagi, "The Two Income Trap."  She just made so much sense, and conveyed my point of view so much better than I ever could (and was pretty good-looking as well), I was captured.  Needless to say, I bought the book, and I loved it.

Time has passed, and Elizabeth Warren has attracted a lot more attention for her development of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and her election to the Senate.  Although we still are a mighty long way from the 2016 election, and all kinds of stuff can happen between now and then, I'm still hoping for Warren.

So far, we've had thirteen years of Clintonistas — to wit, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama — and another four or eight years of Hillary does not much entice me.  It really is time for Bob Rubin to have his heart attack and fucking get out of the way.

I figure if Elizabeth Warren can get the Democratic nomination, Ted Cruz ought to be able to get the Republican nomination.  America will be faced with a real choice.  Wouldn't that be something?!
