Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day!
Are you following the Democratic Party primary? If yes, you may have seen that the New York Times endorsed two candidates yesterday: Elizabeth Warren and Amy Klobuchar. I woke up to the news this morning and it was interesting to see the reactions — I saw a few responses along the lines of: YES! Anyone but a white male. But far more responses that accused the NYT of wimping out, and saying that if the field was all men, the Times would never have endorsed two options.
Except for the fact that the primary season lasts way too long, I admit, I have really enjoyed getting to know the Democratic candidates for president. From the beginning, my two favorites were Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren — our family went to both of their first events in Oakland (Kamala launched her campaign there!) and were deeply impressed with both. Over the past year, they continued to be my favorites and I was quick to like and retweet their messages. Now, with Harris no longer in the race (there are whole dissertations that need to be written on this), Warren has my vote.
I’m not the New York Times, and no one needs my official endorsement, but here it is anyway: I’m officially endorsing Elizabeth Warren.
There are a few reasons why Warren has remained a favorite candidate for me, and I’d love to share them with you. But before I do, I want to say:I’m giving away 5 copies of Warren’s book! It’s not sponsored, I just want people to read her book. Hah! Want to win? Click through for details.
