Joe BidenCongratulations to our presumptive Democratic nominee, Joe Biden!

Warren's interactions with candidates who have dropped out, including John Delaney

...”With everyone who's dropped out that I've spoken with — which I think is close to 100 percent of them — it's been in part to thank them for running and to say, as only another candidate can, I know it's hard," she added.

On the campaign trail, Warren goes out of her way to mention incorporating the signature policy issues of "Cory" (Booker) or "Julián" (Castro). It's a nod to the people she sees less often these days, but it's also a tactic to bolster her pitch that she can build coalitions from the constituencies of the candidates who've dropped out while also drawing a subtle contrast with front-runner Bernie Sanders' more strident brand of progressivism.

Sanders says he has little tolerance for what he sees as frivolous pleasantries. "If you have your birthday, I'm not going to call you up to congratulate you," he told The New York Times editorial board.

And while it's common for candidates to reach out to opponents who drop out and offer gracious platitudes, Warren's conversations with some former candidates have gone deeper.

Former Rep. John Delaney of Maryland sparred frequently with Warren over health care before he dropped out days before the Iowa caucuses. One debate back-and-forth between the two even got so tense that Delaney's "cause of death" on Wikipedia was changed to "Senator Elizabeth Warren." Still, when he dropped out, his phone was ringing — from everyone, but memorably from Warren.

"Everyone was very nice. It was just that the call with her was quite lengthy and quite in-depth," he said. "That demonstrated to me that she has a trait that you don't always find in politicians, which is that she's not entirely self-absorbed. She actually listens."

1. She is a fundamentally good and decent person.

 

Nothing could hide that fact from me, and I would be honored to have her serve as my president.

8. Yes

 

She was not my preferred candidate, but the more I look at it she was the bravest and a true modereate. Yes, some will criticize the MFA for all stuff, but she was not flying without a plan, she had ideas. Sadly her campaign has come to an end, but she would have been a great nominee for sure.

She's raised over $14 million THIS month and $$ is STILL coming in.

If that's a campaign coming to an end, we must have different ideas about how a campaign is run.

"Time to get real." Reality is that most states have not weighed in yet.

Senator Warren listens and you hear micromanager (Jimmy Carter's claimed failing).

This is more than decency. This is how you build coalitions and get things done for all of u.s.

7. I was thinking of our current predicament with trumPutin.

 

Real politicians seek a compromise among multiple factions. GOPers don't do this -- they seek what their owners promote through Kochland and other dark money / propaganda systems.

4. Her basic decency

 

is what makes her resonate with many of us.

She's smart, she's kind, she learns from her mistakes instead of doubling down on them, she keeps going even when it looks hopeless.

She's the kind of person you don't often see in politics.

"She's smart, she's kind, she learns from her mistakes instead of doubling down on them". It is the reason that I have given her a second look with an eye to the future.

5. I remain standing for Senator Warren

 

as our most qualified candidate. I've received my AZ mail in ballot, all 18 named candidates. What a way to split a Democratic ticket. imo.

My ballot is on hold pending the outcome of primaries before the deadline. Joe Biden and Michael Bloomberg are not a "natural" fit for this progressive. The only thing for certain today is, I will vote for the person who wins the primaries and the nomination of the party.

Absolutely agree, otherwise. Elizabeth Warren is the right person for this job right now.
