Ultimately, what you do—coming to town halls, knocking on doors, calling voters—is an act of optimism. It's an act that says: If we get out there and fight from the heart, we'll save our democracy and our country.
I believe in that optimism. That's why I'm in this fight.

Finish the old proverb for me: For a woman to succeed, she must work twice as hard to do half as well…
My husband showed me a headline that was "Buttigieg and Sanders lead in Iowa, Biden trails in 4th" and said he read it and just yelled at his desk.

Just got Warren’s reaction to the partial results out of Iowa showing the senator in third place — she says she is “top three” there, and says “this is an operation that’s built for the long haul.”
Also asked about the significance of NH, her neighboring state: pic.twitter.com/zaGcItHpBp

(Shout-out to Senator Jeanne Shaheen! Who is another gifted politician who’s shattered glass ceilings in New Hampshire… and also a woman who defeated Scott Brown.)
“I believe they think so but they’d be wrong,” she responds and then the audience laughs.

The reactions to this Iowa mess have been so instructive.
Biden: cast doubt on legitimacy of result
Sanders: let surrogates spread conspiracy theories, sulk
Buttigieg: just keep declaring victory
Warren: help the state party confirm data, get back to work

Elizabeth Warren beat Joe "Mr. Electable" Biden by nearly SEVEN points. Seems like a pretty big deal to me. https://t.co/yWBdneLah9

.@ewarren continued: "… I have because they would be appealing to big-dollar donors. I'm fighting the fight I've been fighting pretty much all my life." (2/2)

Thanks to the collapse of the caucus count, she didn’t get to give her “Iowa has made me the comeback kid” speech from Des Moines — but the story here is the comeback, not whatever peculiar narrative the pack seems determined to ratify.

I honestly think the Warren has a much better right to complain about the screw-ups and the rat-fucking in Iowa. But Warren's positioning herself as party unifier is preventing campaign from making that case. https://t.co/KKZajoRZhY

After the NH Debate:
We have no business writing off the 3rd place candidate in a race this fluid. Especially not when more credence is being given to one man who came in behind her, and one who didn’t even compete. pic.twitter.com/fVWrAstp87

Speaking of women working twice as hard…

I wrote this about @ewarren after covering one of her rallies in August. Considering that a third-place finish in Iowa has earned her little more than erasure and misogyny from the political intelligentsia, I felt it might it be relevant to share it again. https://t.co/eNhQcYNPuc
