On New Year's Eve, Elizabeth Warren released a four and a half minute video announcing her campaign for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination. Her video discusses such topics as income inequality and her grassroots origins, detailing how her father suffered a heart attack when she was young, causing her mother to take a minimum wage job at Sears. It was to support the family while her father regained his health, before turning to her introduction to politics, framing her as a reluctant advocate of the people. This was a mantle thrust upon her, that she never expected, but now heroically bears.

She is a staunch defender of the middle class and others oppressed throughout society.

Finally, her campaign speech concluded with a rallying cry against those that would persecute others, pointedly aiming this attack toward Republican personalities. She stated that "if we organize together, if we fight together, if we persist together, we can win" before displaying her campaign website beneath the mantra "Join The Fight."

Elizabeth Warren isn't the only one fighting

When the races truly kick off for the 2020 Democratic primaries, Elizabeth Warren will be far from the only one running. Many analysts are expecting several other candidates for the nomination to come forward. That could include Kamala Harris from California, Corey Booker out of New Jersey, Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, and many others.

And let's not forget the recent buzz surrounding Texas Senate runner-up Beto O'Rourke. Establishment candidates who have yet to close the door for a presidential run such as Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden could also run. Maybe Biden will take Trump behind the gym?

No, it won't be an easy fight for the Senator from Massachusettes to gain a victory.

She is not particularly likely to attract new voters to the base of the Democratic Party, which has swung itself further into a confused heap of identity politics and intersectionality at a pace that many argue was the cause of the rise of Donald Trump in American politics.

Elizabeth Warren is her own worst enemy

It's uncertain what the future holds for Warren. I think that it's entirely possible she'll make it through the scandal of a DNA test and a competitive battleground fraught with young and impassioned contenders to emerge victoriously as the nominee for 2020. But I must note, that as with all things, only time will tell.
