Please do not judge me.
I have become a member of MoveOn.org
Or, at least I have joined their listserv.
I am now getting their latest information about the groundswell of support across the country for US Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Massachusetts) to run for President in 2016.
I hope that she runs. She represents the core of the Democratic Party, the more left-wing, socialist bent which believes that Big Government is good government, and a political elite of secular academics will solve the nation's and the world's programs.
As a conservative looking for a real campaign, and a clear vision as well as distinction between the two parties, I hope that Warren runs.
Here is the latest email I received:
The effort to convince Elizabeth Warren to run for president is gaining steam.
Last weekend people gathered in over 220 house parties to talk about how they can further the effort locally. And the media have begun to recognize this campaign as a serious force.
But if we want to convince Senator Warren to run we can't just say it. We need to say it big.
We need RUN WARREN RUN spelled out in unmissable letters. Literally.
So we're asking: What's the most creative way you can spell out RUN WARREN RUN?
We've already seen hundreds of creative photos of people supporting the effort to get Senator Warren to run, like this awesome picture sent in by MoveOn members in Western Massachusetts:
People are the most powerful messengers in any campaign. Jeb Bush promoters and Scott Walker supporters take notice. Recall that Mitt Romney had lots of money, and the support of the major donor class in 2012, and yet he still lost. Money does not capture the heart the way people power and charisma can.
We know this community is brimming with creativity. So whether it's writing RUN WARREN RUN in five foot letters in the snow (we're looking at you, New England!) or spelling it out as a human tower; whether it's dressed in costume or etched in stone—we want to see it!

In a week, on Presidents Day, MoveOn members will be gathering together to do visibility events in support of the Run Warren Run campaign. We'll share the best submissions by then and blow some of them up to a huge size to include them in the visibility events as well.
So let's get started now. How will you spell out RUN WARREN RUN?
Mort Zuckerman predicted that she would ruin her party if she runs in 2016. Her campaign at he top of the Democratic ticket will hurt swing house races across the country, and bring Illinois, Wisconsin, and Maine into the GOP electoral fold. Her hyperpartisan progressivism might help US Senator Mark Kirk in Illinois as well as Pat Toomey in Pennsylvania.
I hope that Liz runs, because she will be the female version of George McGovern and upend the Democratic Party's chances of winning the White House.
Yes, Senator Warren, please:
