Please, won't someone with name recognition and a following initiate a “Draft Elizabeth Warren” campaign? Do you know anyone who might be able and willing to do it? It needs to get rolling, now.

If you're still an Obama follower please see the list of Obama's broken promises in my post here:

Here’s info from Wikipedia and a couple of Internet pages that provide general information along with one that outlines your particular state’s requirements (a few states do not allow write-ins).

A write-in candidate is a candidate in an election whose name does not appear on the ballot, but for whom voters may vote nonetheless by writing in the person's name. Some states and local jurisdictions allow a voter to affix a sticker with a write-in candidate's name on it to the ballot in lieu of actually writing in the candidate's name. Write-in candidacies are sometimes a result of a candidate being legally or procedurally ineligible to run under his or her own name or party. In some cases, write-in campaigns have been organized to support a candidate who is not personally involved in running; this may be a form of draft campaign.

Write-in candidates rarely win, and votes are often cast for ineligible people or fictional characters. Some jurisdictions require write-in candidates be registered as official candidates before the election.[1] This is standard in elections with a large pool of potential candidates, as there may be multiple candidates with the same name that could be written in.

The following Internet pages will provide general information while the first one will allow you to determine your state’s requirements for write-in candidates (the internet page is for the Bill Nees write-in campaign but the information is valid for anyone):

Maybe CodePink? Thom could do it but he's a solid Obama supporter and wouldn't even consider it.

I just sent an e-mail to CodePink. Maybe, but I'm afraid it's unlikely, they will respond. If any of you would like to send them a message you might use this email address:

A strong, intelligent woman president might be just what the oountry needs.

Surprise, I did receive a most courteous response from CodePink. They can't do it (reson below) but I expect they would like to. Anyone have a better idea of how to get a Draft Warren campaign going? Here's the CodePink reply:

As a 501(c)3, Code Pink cannot endorse or work on any candidate's campaign.

Medea Benjamin highlighted Warren in her end-of-year essay; please read it here:

See #7.

7. Elizabeth Warren is running for Senate and Rep. Barbara Lee continues to inspire.After the financial meltdown in 2008, Warren was appointed chair of the Congressional Oversight Panel to investigate the bank bailout and oversee TARP–and investigate she did. She dressed down the banks and set up a Consumer Financial Protection Bureau to protect borrowers. Warren became so popular that tens of thousands of people urged her to run for the Senate in Massachusetts, which she is doing. And let’s give a shout out to Rep. Barbara Lee, who worked valiantly all year to push other issues with massive grassroots support: a bill to “only fund the withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan” and a bill to repeal the 2001 Authorization of the Use of Force bill that continues to justify U.S. interventions anywhere in the world.

C'mon you women! Here's maybe a chance!

Time To Start Treating Guns Like Abortions

It's time we start regulating guns like we regulate abortions.

Because it just makes sense that we regulate these individual rights in the same way.

Because the Supreme Court, in the Heller case, concluded that there is an individual right to own firearms found in the Second Amendment - just like they ruled in Roe v. Wade that there is an individual right to have an abortion found in the Fourth Amendment.
