11. I agree that balance, an extended outreach esp. toward small and medium business

interests and toward what we in Canada call "multiculturalism", is important.

I just note that such balance is rare - not the norm - and the overwhelming case is a so-called "centrist" or "moderate" pro-corporate monopoly on all power positions, on every single one of them with no exceptions, whether it's a D or R administration. So aside from a fig-leaf of "identity politics" (a woman! a latino! ....) thrown in here and there for show, I don't agree with Metric system's claim.

I don't think Elizabeth Warren would accept the job, even if offered. Maybe another and more appropriate cabinet position, tho'... if it fits her plans.

I look at Warren as being the Dem party's (progressive wing) ace in the whole. If the unthinkable happens and the R's win the 2016 GE (and I wouldn't put all my money on HRC, that's for sure - she's just not smart enough - and she's "too clever by half" I think Warren will be a good bet for 2020.
