[Ed. – Left skeptical about Fauxcahontas’s chances.]

Elizabeth Warren, trying to deflect widespread worries that she’d be the Democratic Party’s riskiest best [sic] to take on President Trump, is the latest example of a candidate without a plan to address her biggest problem.

… Warren’s campaign offered two arguments as to why she’d be a formidable challenger against Trump. Her team has pointed to her hotly contested victory against Sen. Scott Brown in 2012, which quieted skeptics who were wary of her candidacy at the time. And the campaign points to recent presidents, including Trump, who were widely seen as risky picks before heading to the White House.

These rebuttals, upon closer examination, reflect the weakness of the Warren argument. If a candidate’s strongest case for electability is that she won a Senate seat in the most Democratic state in the country—in a banner year for the Democratic Party—then she’s got an electability problem.
