Elizabeth Warren Wins Senate Banking Committee Seat: Sources

It's a victory for progressives who battled to win her a seat on the panel that oversees the implementation of Dodd-Frank and other banking regulations.

Joe Manchin is truly a big disappointment if there ever was one. Up the you-know-what with the COAL industry. And didn't he replace & keep Robert Byrd's seat? What a dirty-rotten-shame. Yeah, if Coal has his ear, it stands to reason that big bankers will have it too.

PS - also made a heavy investment with Alan Grayson. I expect most of those dividends to manifest in PURE ENTERTAINMENT VALUE. Glad to see Alan just recently appeared with Thom Hartmann.
