I think Elizabeth Warren is going to win the Democratic nomination and go on to beat Trump to be the first female President of the United States.
I've donated to Warren, spread her positive qualities and even do some neighborhood running in my Warren shirt (tired in this pic!) to raise awareness. One of her bumper stickers is even going on my car!
I prefer Bernie to her (and all others) just slightly due to some economic and foreign policy differences (those who say they're nearly identical on policy aren't correct, more on that in a sec) and his lifelong consistency, but she would make a fantastic President.
If she does win, my wife, some friends and I will be driving to Washington DC to see her inauguration. It'll be a day we'd never forget. (I'd do the same for only Bernie and all of the other female candidates.) That day would be full of happy tears.
My reason she's not my #1 choice is also the reason why I think she'll win: the main stream media, centrists and corporatists are all fawning over her. There's a reason for that. They view her as an acceptable, reasonable version of Bernie. That's a good thing for her chances
but is also bad if you look at the policy and financial reasons WHY they think she's reasonable. Disgusting "Democrat" groups like Third Way (see below for AOC's opinion of them) are seeing positives in her. That should be seen as a notable red flag.

Here's an example from true progressive @KyleKulinski's Secular Talk describing an example of corporate Dems warming to her in a way they'd never warm to Bernie due to his aggressive economic policies. There's many more examples just like this:

I am very excited to have a woman as our President. If all other things are equal between a male and female candidate, I do think choosing the woman is logical and reasonable. However, the reality is, Warren and Bernie are NOT identical. There are some major differences.
Here's a video from @RealTimBlack (which is a little hyperbolic for my tastes) that describes how Warren hasn't always fought for everything she's talked fiercely about, like all her plans. Quite unlike Bernie for forty years strong.

All this said, I do think she is being demonized far too much by Bernie's supporters because we believe she isn't quite as great as him. With all the exposure and popularity she's getting she's more of a threat and people are being overly critical. You can criticize her fairly
without losing our critical thinking that she's pretty damn close to Bernie's quality, compared closely only to @TulsiGabbard and MAYBE @AndrewYang. The rest aren't even close.

Now with that said, I'm not someone who says #VoteBlueNoMatterWho2020. No one's entitled to a vote.
You vote for whomever you want. Though I STRONGLY encourage everyone to vote for her, should she be the nominee. Is she perfect? No. Is she the "lesser of two evils" that we're used to having shoved down our throats like with Hillary vs Trump? Absolutely not.
