Warren Says She’s Ready to Fight After Des Moines Register Nod

Warren Says She’s Ready to Fight After Des Moines Register Nod(Bloomberg) — The Des Moines Register endorsed progressive favorite Senator Elizabeth Warren a little more than a week before the Iowa caucuses on Feb. 3, saying the Massachusetts lawmaker would “push an unequal America in the right direction.” The influential newspaper in Iowa’s largest city revealed its pick for the first-in-the-nation nominating contest on its website Saturday evening."At this moment, when the very fabric of American life is at stake, Elizabeth Warren is the president this nation needs," the Register's editorial board said.The Register said that many of Warren’s ideas “are not radical. They are right.  They would improve life in America, and they are generally shared by the other Democratic candidates, who bring their own strengths to this race.” The candidate is “tough and compassionate,” the newspaper said.   “Thank you, @DMRegister, for your endorsement! Iowans are ready to make big, structural change—and I’m going to fight my heart out for everyone in Iowa and across the country,’’ Warren said on Twitter. Fair Markets Warren, 70, is polling at 16.3% in Iowa. She’s trailing Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders, and statistically tied for third pace with Pete Buttigieg, in the RealClearPolitics polling average of the state. In a New York Times Iowa poll released on Saturday, Warren’s standing had slipped recently. The newspaper said the second-term senator is “a capitalist” but one that “wants fair markets, with rules and accountability. She wants a government that works for people, not one corrupted by cash.” Warren, a former Harvard Law School professor, “believes government should actively work to prevent and respond to abusive practices that jeopardize individuals and the country’s economy,’’ the Register’s editorial said.  The newspaper wrote at length about what it described as the pluses and minuses of other Democratic candidates contesting next month’s caucus. Biden, the former vice president, was said to lack Warren's specific expertise on income inequality issues. Biden was also said to represent “incremental improvements on the Obama years'' rather than “the bold agenda the times demand.''  Poor Predictor The newspaper said it had doubts about whether Sanders, who is not a member of the Democratic Party, could build the consensus needed to govern. The Vermont senator has also opposed trade agreements supported by Iowa's farmers, it noted. Buttigieg was said to offer “refreshing, common-ground approaches unburdened by the constraints of Washington insider politics." But his eight-year tenure as mayor of South Bend, Indiana, “hardly seems adequate preparation for leading this vast, diverse, divided country,'' the editorial board said.While coveted by candidates, the Des Moines Register’s endorsement has been a poor predictor of caucus-night performance. Since the Register started making recommendations in 1988, only three of its endorsed candidates went on to win the state’s caucuses: Republicans Bob Dole in 1988 and 1996 and George W. Bush in 2000, and Democrat Hillary Clinton in 2016.    (Disclaimer: Michael Bloomberg is also seeking the Democratic presidential nomination.

Trump Defends Tulsi Gabbard and Jill Stein Over Hillary’s Russian Asset Claim: ‘She’s Crazy!’

Trump Defends Tulsi Gabbard and Jill Stein Over Hillary’s Russian Asset Claim: ‘She’s Crazy!’Fox NewsDuring his Fox News primetime interview with close friend and confidant Sean Hannity on Monday night, President Trump took aim at his 2016 presidential election foe, calling Hillary Clinton “crazy” and “sick” for suggesting Russians were “grooming” Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) for a third-party presidential bid.Clinton sparked a multi-day controversy last week when she said on a podcast that Gabbard is a “favorite of the Russians” and that former Green Party presidential nominee Jill Stein is a “Russian asset,” suggesting they could both be involved in helping Russia tilt the election for Trump. Clinton did not offer any proof at the time to back up her claims. Gabbard quickly hit back on Twitter, labeling Clinton the “queen of warmongers” while asserting the former secretary of state’s attacks were part of a “concerted campaign” to sully Gabbard’s reputation.Having defended both Stein and Gabbard earlier in the day while speaking to reporters at a Cabinet meeting, insisting “there’s something wrong” and “sick” with Clinton, Trump picked right up on that theme during his Hannity interview.Complaining about former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on Russian election interference, the president quickly pivoted to complaints about Clinton’s attacks on Gabbard and Stein.“Just like she did with Tulsi Gabbard,” Trump grumbled. “Just like she did with Jill Stein. She said, ‘Jill Stein is a Russian asset.’”Claiming he didn’t know either Stein or Gabbard—even though Gabbard met with him shortly after his election to defend Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad—Trump went on to say that neither of them are Russian assets before revisiting his Cabinet remarks about Clinton and her defenders.“These people are sick,” he declared. “There’s something wrong with them.”Moments later, Trump circled back to the topic. Grousing once again that the Russia investigation was a “phony scam,” the president found a way to also make it about Clinton’s comments.“And then you have Hillary Clinton saying, two days ago, Tulsi Gabbard is a Russian asset,” Trump exclaimed. “And that Jill Stein is a Russian agent.”“And I said, ‘Wait a minute, it took me two and a half years,’” he added. “I wish you would have said that earlier because people would have realized she’s crazy, she’s crazy!”Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.
