Warren Gets Emotional About Her Political Failures

Written By BlabberBuzz | Monday, 03 May 2021 16:30

In a forthcoming memoir, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) reflects on losing her bid for the 2020 Democratic nomination, describing it as “painful.”

Warren reflects on her loss in the memoir “Persist,” according to a copy obtained by The Washington Post. The book is scheduled to be published early this month.

Warren entered the crowded field of Democrats seeking to replace former President Trump in February 2019. After less than a year campaigning, she ended her bid in March 2020.

Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren attributes her failed 2020 presidential bid to her stumbles on explaining how to pay for her signature healthcare plan and the role that gender, particularly her omnipotent female predecessors, played in the campaign.

The Massachusetts Democrat doesn't blame sexism directly in her new book "Persist," but suggests that her campaign was hampered by the failed political efforts of the women who came before her.

"I had to run against the shadows of Martha and Hillary," Warren wrote in her new book, according to excerpts reviewed by the Washington Post in reference to Martha Coakley, who lost her Massachusetts Senate bid in 2010, and Hillary Clinton, who failed to beat Donald Trump in 2016.

Warren suggested that Democrats were fearful about nominating another woman who could lose to President Trump.

Warren drew energetic crowds and a great deal of buzz during her 2020 Democratic presidential run where she was known to stay hours after events taking selfies with enthusiastic fans and making pinky promises with young girls to encourage them to dream big. However, Warren failed to finish better than third in any of the primary contests and dropped out of the race in March 2020, lamenting that the prospects for a history-making first female president were essentially gone.

"One of the hardest parts of this is all those pinky promises and all those little girls who are gonna have to wait four more years," Warren stated at the time, her voice cracking, referring to promises she makes about women running for president. "That's gonna be hard. ... I take those pinky promises seriously."

Warren ran on a bold progressive vision for America, but backed back it up with policy chops and a litany of legislative plans. She and her campaign embraced a motto that "Warren has a plan for that."

Nonetheless, in her book, Warren acknowledges that she stumbled in explaining to Americans how she would pay for her "Medicare for All" plan, which allowed her rivals to pounce and weakened her argument that she had a plan for everything.

"It can be risky to learn on the run, particularly if some of that learning is happening in public," Warren wrote, according to the Post.

Warren's "Persist" goes on sale in early May.
