Elizabeth Warren: It just happened

It just happened

by Elizabeth Warren

Just moments ago, I received a call from Sen. Harry Reidís office, confirming my position on the Senate Banking Committee in January.

I appreciate the faith that Leader Reid has put in me to take this assignment, and I am looking so forward to playing a role in Congressional oversight over big banks on Wall Street and the banking agencies in Washington. Middle class families need more watchdogs in Washington that will try to hold the big guys accountable and to stop bad deals for the American people. Iím ready to help.

Please join me in thanking Leader Harry Reid for this incredible opportunity.

Over the years, your faith in my work has strengthened me. You donated to my election campaign, you made phone calls to help identify volunteers and get out the vote in Massachusetts, and you pushed hard again and again to put wind in my sails in every way imaginable so that I could take on the big guys.

Against the odds, you helped give me a real shot at winning.

Youíve been there for me since the beginning, and Iím so grateful. This is how real change happens Ė we do it together.

Of course, fighting for the middle class means more than talk or strongly worded blog posts. It means across-the-board, consistent accountability for anyone who breaks the law ó no matter where they work or who their friends are. And thatís what weíre going to work hard to accomplish.

But before we get started, please join me in thanking Leader Reid for his giving me this incredible opportunity.

Iíve taken on Wall Street banks and other powerful interests for years, and, with your help, Iíll continue to do so for many years to come.

Thank you for being a part of this, and keep fighting!

6. that's what it was all about...

... until 2016, anyway! ("President Warren" and "Vice President Warren" both have a nice ring to them.)

Love her!

7. Am I the only person who flinches when he sees someone given the title...

... "leader?" Some conventions should not be conventional.

21. But the GOP doesn't like her!! Maybe we should pressure her to quit.

We did it with Rice, why not keep going and give the GOP even more, so they will like us?
