The Harvard Law professor had just turned in what she thought was a mostly finished manuscript of her first mass-market book. But her editor had one major criticism. Elizabeth Warren, Jo Ann Miller worried, had spent more than 160 pages of text and a further 50-plus pages of endnotes delineating a litany of data-backed reasons that bankruptcies and debt were going up and the middle class was going down. She had described what was happening, and had diagnosed why, and had presented possible solutions for legislators, regulators and wonks. Nowhere, though, had Warren offered the actual people who were bearing the brunt of these crushing economic forces anything approaching practical advice. This, her editor thought, was a missing piece. “There was no how-to in the book,” Miller told me recently. “I encouraged her to add a chapter of what to do about it.”Story Continued Below This suggestion led to Chapter 7 of The Two-Income Trap, which was published in 2003, and … [Read more...] about The Making of Elizabeth Warren
Floyd Ciruli, one of Colorado’s most noted pollsters and a go-to pundit on state politics, seems to be of two minds about Gov. John Hickenlooper’s chances as a presidential candidate.It’s a topic he’s been asked about frequently lately, such as by KOA radio’s Ed Greene and Marty Lenz last week.Nearing the end of his eight years in office, Hickenlooper “maintains an approval rating that puts him in the top 10 among fellow governors,” the Ciruli Associates opinion gleaner notes in his blog.He cites a Morning Consult poll that places Hick’s net approval rating at a positive 23 percentage points. Compare that to President Donald Trump’s negative 13 points.“Given he’s at the end of his term and governing in the age of polarization that produces more gridlock than accomplishments, Hickenlooper has done reasonably well,” says Ciruli.Hickenlooper appears to be chewing over a run/don’t run decision this summer, and … [Read more...] about Hickenlooper for president?

John Delaney thinks the Democrats who intend to run for president in 2020 should stop lying about what they’re doing and announce already. After all, he has. And the little-known Maryland congressman thinks that’s part of what will transform a presidential run that pretty much no one takes seriously into the next Jimmy Carter-style, out-of-nowhere explosion onto the presidential debate stage.Story Continued Below Delaney, who made his fortune founding two commercial lending companies, has already spent $1 million out of his own pocket, using it for TV ads in Des Moines and Cedar Rapids and a campaign office in Iowa. Since last summer, he’s taken 11 trips to the caucus state, plus eight to New Hampshire. He’s even written a new campaign book. What does he have to show for it? While he’s been all but ignored in the national media, Delaney has an internal poll from Iowa that ranks him fifth in terms of name ID among potential Democratic candidates. Fifty-two … [Read more...] about The Long-Shot Presidential Candidate Gaining Ground in Iowa
