I always had a bad feeling about Elizabeth Warren, but as with the feeling I had about HRC, I buried the concern. I thought for a while she was the best possible candidate. Then I saw her mean side, out in the open, on full display. It didn't get her any bad headlines, but I bet every person to whom same-sex marriage is still an uncomfortable idea was turned off. What turned me off was how quickly and unfairly she turned it into a male-bashing thing. #
People can legitimately believe marriage is between a man and a woman, without depriving anyone of the ability to get married. That was the correct answer for a future president. Her job, as president, would be to safeguard everyone's First Amendment rights, not just people who agree with her and other Democrats.#
Democrats have to stop bashing men. We don't talk back, because we can't. But we do vote. I bet more than a few men vote for Trump because they don't like how Democrats talk about them.#
I just wonder why we can't find someone who checks all the boxes. Is smart, ethical, projects confidence and strength, compassion, empathy, humor, honor, inclusion, all the things the US deserves in a president.#

You know those obnoxious sites that pop up dialogs when they think you're about to leave, asking you to subscribe to their email newsletter? Well that won't do for Scripting News readers who are a discerning lot, very loyal, but that wouldn't last long if I did rude stuff like that. So here I am at the bottom of the page quietly encouraging you to sign up for the nightly email. It's got everything from the previous day on Scripting, plus the contents of the linkblog and who knows what else we'll get in there. People really love it. I wish I had done it sooner. And every email has an unsub link so if you want to get out, you can, easily -- no questions asked, and no follow-ups. Go ahead and do it, you won't be sorry! :-)
