CHRIS STIREWALT (FOX NEWS POLITICS EDITOR): Elizabeth Warren reminds me a lot of Hillary Clinton, and boy does nothing -- the stench of need, the odor of -- the rapacious hunger, the unslakeable thirst for votes, for your approval, for your affirmation, to somehow tell people that she is like you, that she is just like you and a very normal person. She's also sort of become the character that Kate McKinnon plays, her, on Saturday Night Live.

The reality that Warren is facing, Bernie Sanders is authentic. Bernie Sanders has been the same Bernie Sanders since he was the Sandinista enthusiast, Soviet Union-honeymooning, mayor of Burlington, Vermont, guy. He is Bernie Sanders and he has been Bernie Sanders the whole time through. Elizabeth Warren has re-invented herself many times through her rise, and she is very ambitious and it shows in that kind of stuff.


STIREWALT: The progressive Democrats, Democratic Socialists, the hard-left wing of the Democratic Party looked at her, they gave her a chance. They said, what about her? And so did, by the way, some of the supporters who went to Pete Buttigieg. But she was contesting in New Hampshire, a state that she represents -- a neighboring state too, so does Bernie Sanders. She made a play for Bernie Sanders' voters, she got a good look in the early going, but in the end, I just don't think they're going to trust her. I think they trust Bernie Sanders to stick with them. I think they think that he is sincere and serious, and I think that she comes off as too ambitious, too needy, too much.
