According to the New York Times, Bernie Sanders is disparaging Elizabeth Warren as too smart.
A nearly yearlong run of good will between two of the leading progressives in the 2020 presidential race, Senator Elizabeth Warren and Senator Bernie Sanders, appears to be evaporating in the run-up to the Iowa caucuses.
Ms. Warren said on Sunday she was “disappointed” that Mr. Sanders’s campaign had been using a script for volunteers that suggested she was appealing mainly to highly educated voters and would not be able to expand the Democratic Party coalition.
As I said months ago, the Harvard association irrevocably poisons a portion of the electorate against her. I didn’t anticipate, however, that it would be another Democrat who would exploit it.
Clearly, the Democrats aren’t ready to assume the Republicans’ abandoned mantle as the party of education and accomplishment. Or, perhaps Bernie has lost track of the changes in the two parties. Whatever is the case, I am unalterably opposed to anybody who suggests that a good education is a negative.
