Warren had a plan for everything … almost

Senator Elizabeth Warren had a plan for damn near everything – except what to do if her campaign failed.  She is out of the race for the Democrat nomination for President, but unlike other dropouts, she does not seem to have a plan for what might come next.

The other major dropouts seem to have futures – maybe as a vice presidential candidate or a Cabinet member should former Vice President Joe Biden get promoted to the top job at the White House.  Both California Senator Kamala Harris and Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar could wind up on the Biden ticket.

South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg has a seemingly bright future in the Democratic Party.  He could wind up as Secretary of Housing and Urban Development or make another bid for the Senate.  Even former Texas Congressman Beto O’Rourke could get a Cabinet position or try again for the Senate.

One can imagine former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg being appointed Secretary of Commerce or the Treasury – the latter only if he promises to pay off the national debt.

Then there is Warren.  The senator from Massachusetts is unpopular, widely disliked and – to a degree – politically toxic.  Senators like Klobuchar, Harris, Cory Booker and even Bernie Sanders can stay in the Senate and likely win re-election for the foreseeable future.  With the exception of Sanders, they could also be in play in play for the White House in 2024, 2028, 2032 and forward.

If the age of the current frontrunners is reflective, Buttigieg could plan a presidential campaign up until  the year 2060.  That is, if the earth has not turned into a cinder as Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez seems to think.

At 70, it is possible that Warren could mount another presidential campaign.  The office is likely to be open in 2024 whether Trump wins re-election or Biden fulfills his life ambition.  Let’s face it, at 77 Biden will have to beat the odds to complete even one term hale in body and mind.

The problem with that plan is that Warren is not likely to be any more popular than she is now – and that is the year she would have to run for re-election to the Senate.

Unlike her ambitious Senate compatriots, Warren’s lack of popularity extends to her home state of Massachusetts.  She came in an embarrassing third in the presidential primary – and several polls suggest she will have no easy road to re-election.

Perhaps a President Biden would reappoint her to head the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, but even that is unlikely.  Centrist Democrats, like Biden, have no desire to put that agency in the hands of a radical anti-business activist.  Bloomberg might even call in a few chits to stop such an appointment.  In a Biden administration, that job would likely go to a Wall Streeter.

Perhaps the only plan for Warren is to take her $12 million nest egg – yes, she is that rich — and retire to Golden Pond.

So, there ‘tis.

    I think she would make a perfect running mate for Bernie Sanders; they seem to be on the same page idiot-logically.

    both Biden and Bernie are toxic. Neither of them can or will beat Trump. Biden is only front runner because NOBODY WANTS A SOCIALIST GOVERNMENT, AND BIDEN (WITH HIS SONS HELP AND ACTS)WILL BECOME A LANDSLIDE IN TRUMPS FAVOR. Further, I expect to see a major shift in the House – back in Republican control, and the Senate with a majority increased by at least 5 more seats.
