Liberalii radicali nu se încurcă în Obama

"And can I suggest a presidential ticket for 2016 or 2012 if Obama fails us? [Ohio Congresswoman] Marcy Kaptur and Elizabeth Warren." Aşa a grăit Michael Moore la finalul interviului acordat lui Naomi Klein, despre care povestisem ieri.

Scriam cu ceva timp în urmă că, dacă progresiştii nu-şi vor vedea agenda politică îndeplinită de Obama, nu vor avea nicio strângere de inimă să caute pe altcineva proaspăt, surprinzător şi neconvenţional (ca şi Obama la vremea la care nimeni nu dădea doi bani pe el), pe care să-l susţină în alegerile primare ale Democraţilor din 2016 sau, chiar mai devreme, în 2012.

Acum, într-un interviu serios, cu doi liberali radicali inflexibili, s-au aruncat două nume. La stilul lui Moore, te poţi gândi că a făcut mişto. Dar dacă te uiţi mai bine la ceea ce scrie prin Wikipedia....
La Marcy Kaptur: "Kaptur is a staunch opponent of free trade agreements. She helped lead opposition to the North American Free Trade Agreement, Permanent Normal Trade Relations for the People's Republic of China, and fast track authority for the president. She has consistently supported military spending bills. She was recently named "Most Valuable Member" of the House by The Nation. Though generally reckoned as a liberal-to-progressive Democrat, Kaptur holds moderately conservative views on abortion. [...] She also blamed Wall Street executives for their greed and held them responsible for the crisis and said "You have perpetrated the greatest financial crimes ever on this American Republic. You think you can get by with it because you are extraordinarily wealthy, and the largest contributors to both presidential and congressional campaigns in both major parties."

La Elizabeth Warren, profesoară de dreptul afacerilor la Harvard: "In May 2009, Warren was named one of Time Magazine's 100 Most Influential People in the World. [...] On November 14, 2008, Ms. Warren was appointed by United States Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to chair the five-member Congressional Oversight Panel created to oversee the implementation of the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act. Warren has testified several times before House and the Senate committees on financial issues, such as the Term Asset-Backed Securities Loan Facility.[13]
The National Law Journal has repeatedly named Professor Warren as one of the fifty most influential female lawyers,[14] and she has been recognized for her work by SmartMoney magazine, Money magazine, and Law Dragon."

Cele două doamne apar în cel mai recent film al lui Moore, Capitalism: A Love Story. Reţineţi, deci, două nume pentru viitorul destul de apropiat: Marcy Kaptur şi Elizabeth Warren.
