I need you, you, you: Amherst Democrat's SUV channels divided party

The New York Times editorial board recently caused a stir by endorsing both Elizabeth Warren and Amy Klobuchar in the Democratic presidential primaries.

Two isn't enough for Emily Marcus, a Democratic activist from Amherst who drove to New Hampshire last week to tout Elizabeth Warren before that state's primary.

Naturally, she has a Warren bumper sticker on her Subaru Forester. And a Klobuchar sticker. And, yes, a Kamala Harris sticker for good measure.

All are highly qualified, Marcus said, "And I would feel safe with any one of them in the White House over Donald Trump."

The Democratic trifecta caught the eye of Molly Hensley-Clancy, a political reporter for BuzzFeed News, who posted a picture to Twitter.

Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz, who also traveled to the Granite State for Warren, identified Marcus as the SUV's owner.

Twitter users gleefully parsed the Subaru's many bumper stickers. ("I like to wear my views on my sleeve," said Marcus, who has "ADK" and "Resist.")

"lol the Oregon heart sticker really clinches things."

"could it be anything other than a subaru?"

And our favorite: "Democratic primary voters minds this year in vehicle form."
