2020 Democratic debates

Elizabeth Warren is tired of presidential candidates talking about what they 'really can't do'

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) has had enough with her opponents' cautious attitudes.

As the candidates argued over electability, former Rep. John Delaney (D-Md.) said that the path to the White House is paved with "real solutions, not impossible promises." That apparently rankled Warren, who questioned the point of running for president in the first place if the goal isn't to shake things up and create change.

"I don't understand why anybody goes to all the trouble of running for president of the United States just to talk about what we really can't do and shouldn't fight for," Warren said. "I don't get it."

The crowd certainly seemed to enjoy that one.
