It starts with a candidate in the middle, who has seen her ideas and -- yes -- her plans, bubble into the conversation along with her poll numbers. Sen. Elizabeth Warren gets either the very lucky or very unlucky position of being the highest-polling candidate on the stage Wednesday night. She'll be center stage, alongside former Rep. Beto O'Rourke, with Sens. Cory Booker and Amy Klobuchar and former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro among those also looking for breakout moments.
