Add #7

I'm not completely on the Elizabeth Warren bandwagon, but another reason she should run (assuming she wants to. I don't think she should run if she doesn't) is because it would give the Democrats a choice in the primary.

I am not one of those people who think that Hillary Clinton must be stopped. Odds are, she will be the nominee and I will happily vote for her in November 2016. But that doesn't mean I think she is the perfect candidate and I strongly believe it is just better for the Democrats to have a competitive primary rather than an anointed candidate. Warren doesn't have to be the one to make the primary competitive (and I'm not sure if even she can pull it off), but there aren't all that many other plausible alternatives.
