We haven't heard much about Elizabeth Warren these days -- until now:
Edited on Mon Mar-21-11 07:38 AM by Cal33
The Repubs. are conducting a war against her trying to protect us consumers,
and their attacks against her could possibly back-fire on them. Here's the
article from Paul Krugman:

2. Ms. Warren should run for public office.
I'd vote for her.

Thanks for the heads-up, Cal33!

5. You're welcome. I'd vote for her in whatever position she chooses.
One doesn't see honest, reliable and competent people like her
too often in government these days.

3. Rep. Barney Frank was defending her on Morning Joe today.
He said something interesting. He pointed out that the Tea Partiers aren't gung ho against regulation of Wall St. so Warren might get confirmed in the Senate. I sure hope he's correct in his assessment. It was nice to see that at the same time I was reading the Krugman piece.

6. She should
she's wildly popular, at least among those who know enough to be informed who she is.

7. It's kinda hard to be a big Tea Partier and fight consumer protection in our bank
regulations. Barney Frank just exposed the Tea Party's soft underbelly (sorry for the image that summon up).

9. I hope they have met their match.

Elizabeth Warren is a fighter,
but she will need support from the Administration.
The Administration does NOT have a good track record for backing up their Left of Center appointees.
