Here's an article about what Elizabeth Warren is like at her job in the Senate: She is tough!

She doesn't take any nonsense from anybody, even though she has been at her job for only
7 months. But she can also be warm and friendly.

It's a rather long article, but a highly interesting one. The author also wrote that
"Warren also topped Hillary Clinton in a straw poll of attendees at the Take Back the
American Dream conference that took place in Washington last month."

3. Damn right! Warren doesn't allow herself to be bullied. The GOP isn't used to this kind of

behavior from Democrats. This puts them in a bind. They won't know how
to handle a situation like this. Also, she can out-think, out-smart and out-do
anyone of the GOPers -- or even all of them combined. So, they are plain
afraid of her.

We have already seen that she is the sort of person who really does what she
says she would do. Examples: Student Loan, Breaking Up the Big Banks (and
with John McCain on her side, no less) .....

We need someone like her as president in 2016. She is the perfect person
for the situation we are in right now -- a wise and fearless leader.

I am reminded of old Harry Truman. Someone said to him "Give 'em hell,
Harry!" He replied that he didn't need to give them hell. All he needed was
to tell the truth, and Republicans will think it Is hell. This is the way
Republicans always have been, even in Truman's time. Today, I believe
they've become even worse. Democratic leaders have been letting them
get away with all the lies. Elizabeth Warren will DEFINITELY NOT !!!

I believe that as president, Warren will not tolerate all the lies GOPers will
invent and spread about her as they have done to Obama, Clinton...and all
the rest. She will state publicly what the truth is -- and back up her statements.
with proof. The GOPers will learn to be very careful when they lie about her,
because they will end up losing each and every time.

If Elizabeth Warren decides to run for president in2016, she's got my vote.
THAT'S FOR SURE !!!

She is THE NEW BLOOD we've been looking for.

4. Another thought: It's been said that the Democratic Establishment might not want Warren to be

the Democratic nominee in 2016, and that they are the real deciders. This is possible. Warren is
for raising the opportunities of having a better life for ALL Americans. She will not be influenced
by anybody who has only greedy and selfish purposes in mind for the benefit of the few, and to
hell with everybody else!

I think Warren is someone with a mind of her own, and her values are incorruptible. Finally, here
is someone with the ability and willingness to pull our nation out of the muck it is in, and the
possibility is there that she might be prevented from doing so by people from her own Party --
the powerful but gutter-minded people who enjoy wallowing in the fecal cesspool.

What can be done about the above predicament?

11. I am also reminded of Sen. Sanders and Rep. Grayson. We need more

people like them in Congress. Right now there are too few of them, and too many
of the other kind. If Warren should become president, it would be a stimulus for
Democrats to elect more progressives and liberals to Congress. That would lead
the way to real change.

6. It also shows they can't argue with her on the points.

7. Oh, they can argue, all right! But they will lose most of the time.

8. Indeed. I'd be afraid to go up against her (not that I would - I agree with her too much!)

9. Only difference is the people in her party with whom she's fighting.

Cruz fights with everyone. Warren's clashing with the assholes--Baucus, Manchin, etc.

Could you draw an iconoclast comparison? Maybe, I suppose--but I don't think Warren does it out of contempt for her colleagues, like Cruz.

10. I agree with you. I don't think she is the type to get into a fight just

for the sake of having a fight. She has more important things on her mind.
