Will making Elizabeth Warren the one crumb Obama throws the left make Warren effective or the left happy?
For one thing, if The Big O really appoints her, he'll make sure to cripple her by surrounding her with bankster weasels picked by Rahm.
For another, it's policy that the left is consistently correct on, and it's policy that The Big O continually shits the bed on. So how is one appointment going to change that?
Finally, everybody knows Obama hates the left. So how is making Warren the left's poster child in the administration going to do anything other than render her an ineffective figurehead?
Of course, getting back in line in exchange for one appointment would make "progressives" look awfully easy. But then, they are easy. Awfully.
NOTE Of course, career "progressives" will be ecstatic. They'll have their "Honey, I've changed" moment. No doubt that will persist all the way through November, when it will be replaced, again, by a querolous need for re-assurance....
