"The American creed has no more devoted adherents than those who have been historically denied its promises, and no more fair-weather friends than those who have taken them for granted."

This is a core truth about Trump: He's not a nationalist, he's an ethnonationalist pretending to be a nationalist.

I’ve seen lots of nervous Democrats compare Warren to Clinton. Clinton had the most plans, too. Look how that ended.

I think the analogy is wrong. Clinton had many policies but no clear story. Warren’s talent is in using many policies to tell one story.

This frame makes the pressure to "not be a burden" so toxic. We're all taught to think people won't like us if we're needy, so we don't admit when we're hurting. But if we don't give the people in our lives the ability to care for us, we block those relationships from deepening.

I'm obsessed with @AlisonGopnik's idea that we don't provide care to people because we love them, we love them because of the acts of care we do for them. Parenthood makes this clearer, but looking back on my own life, it's true for so many relationships.

"Billions of I.Q. points are lost to malnutrition...the world’s greatest unexploited resource is not oil or gold but the minds of hungry children."

Elizabeth Warren has lots of plans, but this, right here, is her core policy pitch, the riff she turns most questions back to. The middle-class benefits a 2-cent wealth tax on fortunes can buy, and how much that bargain could change American politics.

Sometimes people look at these numbers and say Trump was polling poorly at this point in 2015, too. I think that analogy is flawed. He was a political unknown at this point in 2015. Now he's the best-known quantity in American politics.

It's a sign of the rot in our political system that all conversation about holding the president accountable takes the form of discussing "What Democrats should do," because Republicans have utterly abdicated their oversight role.

Great profile of Elizabeth Warren’s ideological journey. One of the things that makes Warren impressive is she pays attention, gathers data, and changes her mind when warranted.

It’s a rare quality for a politician, and an important one for a president.

That monopolies answer by Warren in her CNN townhall was killer. A master class is how to clearly explain a complex policy that’s without collapsing into jargon.

The idea that Warren isn’t a charismatic speaker is insane. This is the stuff people gushed over Bill Clinton for.

The Warren/Bernie answers on free college are really revealing. Elizabeth Warren gives policy answers to policy questions. Bernie Sanders gives moral answers to policy questions.

Buttigieg responding to a question about why his web site is devoid of policy plans by saying Democrats shouldn't drown voters in the minutia of policy is ridiculous. It's okay to say it's coming soon. It's ludicrous to dismiss the value of policy proposals.
