3. Elizabeth Warren

Liberal voters have been begging Elizabeth Warren to run for president for years. She politely declined for the 2016 election and threw herself into supporting Hillary Clinton, encouraging her own fans to do the same. After Warren made it clear that she was not going to launch her own campaign, many Democratic voters pushed to have her chosen as Clinton’s running mate.

Elizabeth Warren, senator from Massachusetts, has been building up this momentum for quite some time, and it’s highly likely that she could use that to propel her to the top of the list for Democratic nominee in 2020. She’ll reach her 70th birthday during her campaign, but America just elected a 70 year old man into office, so why not a 70 year old woman? And if any 70 year old woman has a shot, it’s Elizabeth Warren.

She’s got the personality and the record to pull it off. Never one to back down from a fight, Warren has proven that she’s got strong convictions and is willing to do whatever it takes to fight for the American people. She has been openly critical of tax breaks for the wealthy, stating that none of them got rich without the help of infrastructures built by the rest of the American people. Warren has shown that she’s not afraid to take on Wall Street and the big banks in order to protect the working class.

She even fought to get “the same great deal that banks get” for student loan borrowers, pointing out the ridiculousness of interest rates on student loans versus those that banks get from the federal government. When it was revealed that Wells Fargo employees were opening fraudulent accounts in order to meet sales goals set by Wells Fargo, Warren pushed for CEO John Stumpf to resign.

With all of this talk in the 2016 election about which candidate is truly interested in protecting working class Americans, Elizabeth Warren can enter the 2020 presidential race with a proven track record showing that she is that candidate.
