Interesting piece in yesterday’s NYT (at http://www.nytimes.com/2012/05/27/us/politics/democrat-challenges-elizabeth-warren-in-massachusetts.html?hp) on Marisa DeFranco’s efforts to force a Democratic primary against Warren.
Two quotes from the piece:
“Ms. DeFranco is to the left of Ms. Warren on a number of issues, including health care (she supports a single-payer system) and national security (Ms. Warren is more hawkish). She thinks Ms. Warren is too focused on the need for financial regulation — a “one-trick pony,” as Nancy Weinberg, a DeFranco supporter from Newbury, put it during a conversation here.”
and, on Warren’s handling of the Native American kerfluffle:
“’It says to me that they’re not good on defense, they’re not good in panic mode and they lack a clear, consistent message,’ Ms. DeFranco said.”
