Did Seth Moulton Drop Out of the Presidential Race Because Elizabeth Warren Bailed on His 2017 Wedding?

Did Seth Moulton Drop Out of the Presidential Race Because Elizabeth Warren Bailed on His 2017 Wedding?

Representative Seth Moulton, a man you probably didn’t know was running for president, announced on Friday that he will no longer be running for president. The Massachusetts congressman entered the 2020 race relatively late (April), and his centrist campaign never got much traction. But did he drop out for reasons beyond poor numbers and having a kind of alienating haircut? Let’s consider it....

RIP John Delaney

RIP John Delaney

During night one of CNN’s Democratic Debates, America witnessed the tragic trouncing of former Congressman John Delaney at the hands of Senators Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren. It was a brutal slaying, resulting in the centrist’s eyes bulging idignantly and a nervous smile splitting across his face in a vain attempt to deflect the fatal verbal blows.

“We should deal with the tragedy of...

Medicare for All Is the Big Debate During the Big Debate

Can we pause for a moment and marvel at the fact that in 2019, the main debate among the candidates for the Democratic presidential nomination is how to best get to universal, free healthcare coverage? Thank you, Daddy Bernie !

At Tuesday night’s DNC debate featuring 10 (how!!!) of the remaining top candidates, including Senators Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders, the question that dominated...

Elizabeth Warren Also Has a Selfie Plan, Naturally

Elizabeth Warren Also Has a Selfie Plan, Naturally

Elizabeth Warren is a woman who values strong organizational skills, so it would make sense that this applies even to the most banal things in her campaign—including the photos she takes with voters. The New York Times profiled Warren’s well-oiled selfie line—correctly noting that the photos, taken by Warren’s body woman, are not technically selfies!—in a nifty interactive piece.

But the...

It Was Elizabeth Warren's Night

It Was Elizabeth Warren's Night

While the first Democratic Debate highlighted the strengths of fledgling candidates like Julián Castro, whose showing was robust , Senator Elizabeth Warren still managed to come out on top in a very crowded Democratic field. Her biggest winner: Health care.

As contenders Beto O’Rourke and John Delaney dithered about the benefits of private insurance, Warren decimated it.

Warren said that she...

Joe Biden Was Still on His Hyde Amendment Backtracking Tour at the Planned Parenthood 'We Decide' Forum

Nearly all the Democratic candidates in the 2020 presidential race came together to rally for abortion rights at the June 22 Planned Parenthood “We Decide” forum, including Joe Biden, who until recently was in favor of the Hyde Amendment, which bans the use of federal funds to pay for abortions.

A military veteran in the audience told Democratic frontrunner Biden that she’d been sexually...

Woe Is Bernie

Woe Is Bernie

Bernie Sanders is fairly certain people only like Elizabeth Warren because she’s a woman, which poses a problem for him, a man.  

On CNN’s Cuomo PrimeTime, host Chris Cuomo asked Sanders why he thinks Warren is catching up to and in some cases surpassing him in the polls, which set Sanders on a rant about the “problem” of Warren’s womanhood:

“Well, I think we are running against a lot of...
