Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, a left wing progressive, might be a good option in 2016 for Democrats suffering from Obama fatigue, political blogger Javier Manjarres tells Newsmax TV.
Manjarres, of Shark-Tank.com,
and Rachel Sklar, founder of The Li.st
— a women’s media visibility platform — and a former member of LeanIn.org, discussed prospective candidates and the current political climate on "America's Forum."

Sklar said Warren brings a lot to the table in terms of competence and charisma.
"Elizabeth Warren is immensely popular, and she has been a tremendous, positive force for Democrats because she has actually engendered real change, and she has a very strong message, but she remains extremely likable," she said. "Wherever she is pushing the messaging is probably a good thing, and a useful thing, for a party that has eight years now been on message with one particular leader."
Should the far left offer enough support for Warren to make it through a primary, the party can then focus on reaching out to less partisan voters, Manjarres said.
"Once they embrace their base and they win their respective primary elections then you'll see their message morph into going after those coveted moderate votes or independent votes," he said.
