Rising disagreement among congressional Democrats over whether to pursue impeachment of President Donald Trump has had little effect on the party’s presidential candidates, who mostly are avoiding calls to start such an inquiry.

She’s got on her gym shorts, folks!
Might the nation one day have a President Elizabeth Warren?
If you count out Trump, one poll says Yes.
Via Politico, according to a Quinnipiac University study released Wednesday, Elizabeth’s pulled ahead of former VP Joe by two points — that makes the score 27% to 25%.
To be clear, that’s still within the survey’s margin of error, but Pocahontas is clearly on the warpath.
In the last report by Quinnipiac, Liz was at a crummy 19 to Joe’s beefy 32.
But now, look out, Jack!
And Joe’s not exactly sprintin’ without ankle weights. The Daily Wire thinks he’s got a heap of problems:
Biden’s problems are systemic. First, assuming he was the party’s inevitable nominee, Biden didn’t do much on the ground campaigning in early primary states — even as other Democrats, like Warren, started their tours of Iowa, Nevada, New Hampshire, and South Carolina back in the spring. Now playing catch-up, Biden has given speech after gaffe-filled speech, engendering little confidence in his nascent presidential campaign.
He’s also got some baggage from the past — like saying he’d “be damned” if he’d participate in reparations and calling gays security risks (here and here). Not to mention recently appearing to insist he’s so cool, he’s not even uncomfortable around black people (here).
But in the luggage department, Warren ain’t so slick her own self — she’s either a baloney-filled huckster or a vampire: Despite what the mirror tells her, she’s claimed to be an Indian to great career profit (here).
Giving her the benefit of the doubt, her campaign’s startin’ to show its fangs.
It’s a tight race at the moment, but I’m lookin’ into my crystal ball at the Ultimate Contest: If Elizabeth makes it to the last round and finds herself on a stage against Donald J. Trump, that guy’s gonna eat her lunch like the Cookie Monster shovelin’ down Chips Ahoy. She won’t have a chance against the most ferocious live-on-stage presidential opponent I’ve ever seen.
That guy takes no prisoners.
What do you think? Could Elizabeth transform into a titan of entanglement? Might she roll up her sleeve and shock the world with a belligerent bicep in the arm wrestle for the White House?
Let us all know.
And just out of curiosity: At the beginning of this article, how many of y’all visualized her in running shorts? I did.
