'It is stomach-churning': Progressives' dread rises as Warren and Sanders collide

'It is stomach-churning': Progressives' dread rises as Warren and Sanders collide”

The Sanders campaign has called on Ms Warren to outright deny the claims, something she is yet to do.

The stakes were high when Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren met at Warren's apartment in Washington, DC, one evening in December 2018.

In his response, he said the comment had been made up by "staff who weren't in the room and are lying about what happened".

Stephanie Taylor and Adam Green, co-founders of the Progressive Change Campaign Committee, which has at times praised both Warren and Sanders, released its own statement Monday night saying they "believe that a back-and-forth about this private meeting is counter-productive for progressives".

That kind of warning was also the topic on Monday, prior to CNN's controversial reporting, of a new column by Common Dreams contributor Norman Solomon urging readers to be aware that corporate news outlets, establishment figures in the Democratic Party, and Republicans alarmed by a unified progressive front are all salivating at the prospect that the "nonaggression pact" between Warren and Sanders might be fraying.

"It is ludicrous to believe that at the same meeting where Elizabeth Warren told me she was going to run for president, I would tell her that a women couldn't win", Sanders said in a statement.

New York Times columnist Bret Stephens makes a strong case for Sanders' theoretical strength as a candidate: Sanders is Trump from the left: He's an angry old white guy with a cult-like following who loved the old Soviet Union and is so far out of the mainstream Democratic Party, he's not even a Democrat. "After all, Hillary Clinton beat Donald Trump by 3 million votes in 2016". "I thought a woman could win, he disagreed", she said.

Still, the controversy is likely to revive anxiety among Democrats about whether - almost four years after Hillary Clinton lost her White House bid - voters are willing to support another woman running for president. "And it's not white or black or male or female".

"I think it's a step forward in America if you have an African American CEO of some major corporation".

Amid fresh warnings that progressives in the US should be on guard against efforts by the corporate media to sow division between the Warren and Sanders campaigns, CNN came under fire Monday afternoon after publishing an unsubstantiated hit piece that cited anonymous sources-not even in the room at the time-claiming Bernie Sanders privately told Elizabeth Warren in 2018 that a woman could not win the presidency.

Polling is tight in Iowa, with Biden, Sanders, Buttigieg and Warren all separated by just 4.7 percentage points, according to a RealClearPolitics average of recent polls.

National opinion polls show Senator Warren in the top tier but trailing Senator Sanders and former vice-president Joe Biden. Warren and Buttigieg were in a statistical tie with Sanders, while Biden was behind at 15 per cent support. We are living in a nation increasingly becoming an oligarchy.

While tensions have been building for months between the campaigns and their supporters, the candidates had so far refused to go after each other directly. Warren responded later in the day by accusing Sanders of "sending his volunteers out to trash me" and warning that the argument spelled out in the script risked stoking a brand of "factionalism" that roiled Democrats in 2016.

But following a Politico story over the weekend that reported the Sanders campaign had instructed some volunteers to characterize Warren as a candidate for wealthy and well-educated voters in conversations with undecided voters, Warren issued a rare critique of her opponent. Elizabeth Warren and I will continue to work together, we will debate the issues. "I know Bernie is in the race for the same reason".
