Elizabeth Warren is trying to position herself as the leader of the “resistance.”

What does that mean for her national ambitions?

She may be about to make a terrifying announcement that will have severe consequences for Donald Trump.

Donald Trump has been President for one month, and Democrats are already scrambling to position themselves for 2020.

Elizabeth Warren is at the head of that pack.

Her twitter feed is filled with rabid opposition to Trump’s cabinet nominees.

Warren’s opposition to Jeff Sessions is what raised her national profile.

She smeared Sessions by alleging he was a racist in a speech on the Senate floor.

Republicans used the rules of the Senate to end her rant because she personally insulted a colleague.

But afterwards, she tweeted about how she would always persist.

Many viewed this incident as the unofficial kickoff of her 2020 Presidential campaign.

In fact, she has made several quiet moves to bolster her resume ahead of a Presidential campaign.

She announced in December that she was joining the Armed Services Committee.

Pundits viewed this as a move to boost her foreign policy and national security chops.

The Hill reports:

“Sen. Elizabeth Warren is set to bolster her Senate resume next year, sparking early talk about a 2020 presidential bid.

The Massachusetts Democrat will join the Armed Services Committee in 2017, branching out beyond the tough-on-Wall Street message that made her a liberal favorite.  

Warren has tied the decision to her family — her three brothers served in the military — and Massachusetts ranks in the top 10 states on military spending, according to a Pentagon report.

But the announcement spawned a wave of a media speculation that Warren is filling portfolio gaps to position herself for a 2020 presidential run.

MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell called the step a “very important move that could be a first step in a presidential campaign.”

Does this add up to a Presidential bid?

The early signs say “yes.”

Warren would represent the far-left Democratic base.

But her coastal liberalism and identity politics are what drove away working-class Americans from the Democratic Party in 2016.

Will 2020 be a repeat?
