If she doesn't endorse Bernie, leftists could turn her. If she does, moderates will turn on her. At the very least people will be asking her non-stop.

It also wouldn't surprise me if she's on the Bernard bros bandwagon on Day One (which I'm sure wouldn't be a coincidence)

my guess would be she'll say a lot of complementary things but stop short of an official endorsement

warren made it through the 2016 campaign without picking a side, it's not that hard

like

we need to support x y z policies
does that mean you don't support [her] but you do support [bernie/whoever]?
i support the idea that we can be progressive and help our fellow americans who need it, and i would hope all of the candidates support that and will show it in bold policy choices

or whatever
well that was intense

Yeah she’ll be fine if she doesn’t endorse a candidate. She might get some blowback from hardcore Bernie obsessive but such is politics. I think most people recognize she’s the future.

Political Gabfest is still in my feed and I saw they were talking about AOC so I had to listen out of curiosity. Even fucking Bloomberg-loving David Plotz was extremely complimentary of her. Shit is wild.

i mostly agree w what others have said on this, though if in the off-chance she endorses the dems' moderate/establishment pick, it'll piss a lot of ppl off.

"stories" like these are more nail-biting/anxiety-inducing for me than anything Our Fascist in Chief is doing atm

https://www.politico.com/story/2019/01/ ... nt-1093728

it's genuinely terrifying and heartwarming that there are so many awful humans trying to deprogram her political commitments - and yet, she ah, persists! :mrgreen:

i think in general she's indicated the intention to distance herself from presidential debate, saving her endorsements for representatives and the like

yeah i think it makes sense for her to endorse policies rather than candidates. if the nominee ends up not being bernie (*gulp*), she'll still have leverage to push them left on m4a/GND/etc

whoever the nominee is will probably support M4A/GND at least as concepts anyway. even the dreaded centrist beto.

All well and good quoting Watchmen, but I'll stay on the fence until she busts out some actual classic comic quotes like "Let's kick some ice!" or "I'm afraid my condition has left me cold to your pleas of mercy."
