I like it, either way frankly, but, also consider Biden/Harris ... These are four POWERHOUSES, the entire GOP doesn't add up to their accumulated potential.

If I have to pick from them (including centrist elite like faux-progressives Creepy Uncle Joe Biden and Hillary-lite Harris) I'd definitely go with the Sanders/Warren ticket.  

As much as it disgusts me, having a woman as the lead of a ticket would cause more problems than having a man.  I also believe that Sanders would be much more open to accepting advice and "EQUALLY" working with a woman like Warren than any one else would.  

THAT said, I have MAJOR issues with both of their support for Israeli incremental genocide and their appalling support of Saudi Arabia and their aggression in Yemen.  Racist, war mongers of any ilk are a non-starter for me.

Amy, try to maintain perspective and purpose...

We must fix what's wrong at home before we entertain a prioritized concern for matters abroad....

Notice that I have walked back my original concern for fielding a balanced ticket...

My concern is winning big and making big changes...

Warren/Sanders or Sanders/Warren is the one two punch that can bring us both a big win and big change....

BTW, I don't share your concern re a woman at the top of the ticket....I believe that Warren presents a slightly more conventional/marketable Presidential profile than Sanders....

The wealthy of Wall Street fear her because she has the chops to accurately comprehend and change the system that makes them and keeps them rich....

Bernie has the ideological fire power to get money and votes, Warren has the intellectual and informational weaponry and guts to use her unique weaponry to get the job done....

A Warren/Sanders or Sanders/Warren victory would send a clear and unambiguous message about the mandate...

Thanks Ron for the attempt at levity ... although good luck, thick skulls rarely allow the rays of sun to shine through. EVERY politico, even my current fav, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, has mistakes in their past. Biden's is Uncle Clarence Tom-ass. I agree, we need to cut off Saudi Arabia completely, how the fuck can this little country be the third largest weapons buyer? The answer is obvious, if you need me to tell you go back to school. Get the FUCK of Israel's ass. Does the Palestinians totally questionable last hundred years, (Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, ad nauseum) really equal the thousands of years of Jewish discrimination, the forced ribbon wearing, the mandatory courier positions, or death? I am one hundred percent pro-peaceful Palestinians and one hundred percent anti land-grab settlements, but, come on now! Thousands of years until first Zionism improved the Levant which the Ottomans had left for shit, then, the Harem fixated "Sick Man of Europe" literally dies off, leaving us with the lovely Turks and their Armenian fascination- where are you on the genocide there SBA?

Anyway, I am all for a Sanders/Warren Ticket, too bad Nader and Stein caused so much pain in the meantime ... 500 Naderite idiots in Florida, 74,000 Redneck Hater Trump Scumbags in Michigan, White-Consin and Deliverance Pennsylvania.

SBA, you have so mis-identified the enemy, and since you call me Fake, a total affront to my DNA, from now on I call you Pogo, and you look up the quote if you are too young to remember, maybe you do, hint, it is US.

Maui. You may be right...Our biggest problem may be fighting and bickering amongst ourselves...

In that regard we should keep internal discord and disagreemrnt to an absolute minimum, and when there is disagreement, maintain civility in the discourse....

I respect that Ron. I also am a street-fighter, and unlike Kosh, don't always rise above the fray. SBA's behavior is borderline lunatic, with a heavy splash of both NPD and BPD, and likely a heavy dose of PTSD due to her upbringing in a prejudicial environment against her own kind, which, it may be noted, didn't slow either you or I down or bring out that worst habit of insults of pre-judging, or taking sides without real knowledge of both. So, I will try and keep it to at least British Etiquette, or at least Marquess of Queensberry Rules on your blog as you prefer to run it this way.

I will slug it out with anyone else on any other ... and my own blog has a mandatory NO DELETION OF COMMENTS rule, sticks and stones and all ...

@maui, "SBA's behavior is borderline lunatic, with a heavy splash of both NPD and BPD, and likely a heavy dose of PTSD due to her upbringing in a prejudicial environment against her own kind,..."

Not necessary or appropriate....

"...which, it may be noted, didn't slow either you or I down or bring out that worst habit of insults of pre-judging, or taking sides without real knowledge of both..."

If you'll notice, In my case, the vitriol and name calling has pretty much been eliminated...

In most other cases it has been dialed back considerably....

You would do well to do the same...

@Amy; "Ron, I'm all for civility, but have a very low tolerance for bullshit..."

In case you hadn't noticed, social media runs on BS....
