BOLD PROGRESSIVES & Elizabeth Warren are Happy too~
BOLD PROGRESSIVES are Happy too~

BREAKING NEWS: We did it! Today, President Obama will name Elizabeth Warren to lead the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau -- and become a White House economic adviser with direct access to the President.

Can you sign our congratulations card to Elizabeth Warren? (We'll deliver the card to her personally -- please encourage others to sign.)

Warren, who earned a reputation for holding Wall Street's feet to the fire, just told the Huffington Post:

The President "asked me to take on the job to get the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau started -- right now. The president and I are committed to the same vision on CFPB, and I am confident that I will have the tools I need to get the job done." Congratulate her.

This is a HUGE victory, and it wouldn't have happened without you and over 200,000 others advocating for Elizabeth Warren's leadership. For the first time, progressives successfully pressured President Obama to select the most progressive option on the table.

Together, we made thousands of calls, wrote hundreds of letters to the editor, and left politicians and the media baffled over all the fervor for Elizabeth Warren. The Boston Globe called it an "uprising among Warren's legion of supporters." The Huffington Post wrote that PCCC members were "bombing Senate with Elizabeth Warren calls."

So, seriously...congratulations. People-power made a difference!

Now, can you add your name to our congratulations card to Elizabeth Warren -- and invite your friends to join you?

We'll deliver the card along with a bouquet of flowers. There's even a space on the card for you to add a personal note to Warren.

Thanks for making this victory possible.

--Julia Rosen, Stephanie Taylor, Forrest Brown, Adam Green, Michael Snook, and the rest of the PCCC team
