After the disappointing ranking of Tuesday, Elizabeth Warren has decided to drop out of the race of presidential election. Now we’re left with Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders, and the winner will then go ahead against Donald Trump for 2020 presidency.
The former law professor campaigned rigorously to fight corruption and change the consistently unstable economy. The senator’s unexpected withdrawal has left us disappointed as now we’re back to square one. Two white men are going to fight it out and get a chance to stand against Donald Trump for the presidential elections.
Nothing will change as we’re still going to be governed by a privileged white man for the next four years.

America is dumb for not voting for a progressive woman. Instead, they keep placing their votes in favor of 70-year-old men who have one foot in the grave already.
Warren’s exit is a direct result of poor showings in the critical Super Tuesday contest. What started out has a historically diverse democratic field has quickly boiled down to two white men.
Warren expressed her anguish to all her supporters from Massachusetts.
“One of the hardest parts of this is all those pinky promises. All those little girls are going to have to wait for a woman.” – said Warren to the rally.
Throughout the campaign, we had witnessed Warren go down on her knees to assure little girls of her victory. It’s exactly what women needed. We needed representation and reassurance. Little girls deserve a better today and an even better tomorrow. They need to see that they too can become future leaders and presidents.
Last summer, six women were photographed high-fiving and laughing with each other. We were ready for the change. We needed to utter “Madam President” out loud.
The midterm of 2018 was deeply encouraging as being a woman was now viewed as a distinctive advantage. People of color won votes in the white-majority districts, and by 2019, six women from diverse backgrounds were finalized as the presidential nominees.
And guess what we’re left with? Two white men in their 70s yet again.

Elizabeth Warren’s sudden withdrawal makes it loud and clear that women are not allowed to enter the highest offices in the country. Their presence would never be acknowledged, and it’s a stark reminder of what women experience while they’re vying for votes.
It has sparked a vicious rage within us and made us question whether the notion of electability is discussed because of her gender. In fact, Warren herself spoke about the role that sexism played in her campaign.
“Gender in this race, you know, that is the trap question for everyone. If you say, ‘Yeah, there was sexism in this race,’ everyone says, ‘Whiner!’ And if you say ‘No, there was no sexism,’ about a bazillion women think. What planet do you live on? I promise you this: I’ll have a lot more to say on that subject later on.”
There’s a voice in our heads that is always confirming the disheartening truth. We all feel that no matter what happens, women don’t stand a chance.
“She’s a firecracker, but she doesn’t have all that experience that Biden does. And I don’t think she can win, because she’s a woman, dang it, and they don’t like women presidents, I guess,” said a voter in Iowa last January.

Biden and Sanders both have released their statements on her sudden decision to quit.
Sanders said, “She has run a very strong issue-oriented campaign and the reason that her campaigns ideas will remain viable for many, many years is she has changed political conscience in America.”
Whereas Biden called her the “fiercest of fighters for middle class families.”
