Like nearly every other reasonably informed and well-intended American voter, I’m hoping that the Democrats will nominate the candidate most likely to defeat Trump in 2020. That calculus must anticipate the prolonged campaign of smears, ruses, disinformation, voter suppression, probable election results manipulation, and other assaults on our electoral process that are certain to be waged by Trump and his domestic and foreign allies. Despite Warren’s ill-advised playing up of her apparently 1/32 American Indian heritage and her clumsy handling of criticism of it. I believe that her high intelligence, legal acumen, and manifest sincerity and passion would carry the day for her against Trump. I think her moral and intellectual superiority would shine through.
