Warren is John Kasich in a Woman’s Blazer

She tried desperately to make it a slogan that stuck: “Warren has a plan for that.” It didn’t stick, nor did it grow on or impress anyone. And what she really needs more than anything else at this point is a plan on how to get out of this race.

The comparisons to 2016 Republican embarrassment John Kasich are growing. Neither demonstrated any ability to win the nomination, neither were well liked by any significant number of party loyalists, and both proved themselves to be uber-narcissists, clinging to their dead-end campaigns long after far more qualified, capable, and legitimate contenders had gracefully exited.

While it’s true that Warren has yet to accomplish Kasich’s humiliating feat of finishing fourth in a three-man race, at least he won his home state of Ohio. Warren not only failed to win the state she represents in the U.S. Senate, she came in third.

Acknowledging that she was trying to determine the best step forward from here, her campaign adviser detailed the devastation visited upon her campaign by voters on Super Tuesday:

“We fell well short of viability goals and projections, and we are disappointed in the results,” he wrote…

The results are a stark contrast to the campaign’s projected Super Tuesday numbers. Lau wrote in a campaign memo last month that the team expected Warren to pick up delegates in all but one state during the major day of primary contests.

“Warren is poised to finish in the top two in over half of Super Tuesday states (eight of 14), in the top three in all of them, and is on pace to pick up at-large statewide delegates in all but one,” he wrote at the time.

And yet, to coin another one of her favorite attention-getting lines, “she persisted.” At the time she coined that phrase as a badge of honor, it was following her refusal to follow Senate rules for decorum and dignity. Fellow Democrats celebrated her little peacock strut at the time.

Few are celebrating this current strut that is preventing a fair run-off between the two obvious contenders for this nomination – her fellow socialist Bernie Sanders, and establishment favorite, former Vice President Joe Biden.

There have long been rumblings from entrenched Washington types that Warren doesn’t have the greatest of reputations amongst her colleagues – that she is usually focused on finding the camera, putting on a show, and pretending that she has far more adoring fans than she really possesses.

Her continued presence in a presidential contest that has left her behind is doing nothing to dispel that reputation.
