Pundit puffery

Just heard some talking head on MSNBC explaining that Elizabeth Warren will basically shut up and sit down in the Senate until she “develops her expertise.”

Let me make a prediction, since this guy’s is worthless.

First of all, Warren was urged to run by the White House to get rid of her. She insisted on strengthening the Consumer Bureau and standing up against Wall Street, which is why they wanted her gone. This is not a big secret. So they dangled the possibility of the Senate in front of her when no one really believed she could win.

She showed them.

This is the same woman who successfully swam in the shark tank of Harvard Law School, which makes the Senate look like a kindergarten. She is probably the most knowledgeable person in the country on bankruptcy.

And she’s supposed to wait and “develop her expertise”? Hah.

Look, she’s not progressive on everything. But she will be the most successful advocate for poor and working people since FDR. And that makes me very, very happy.

    Ms. Warren has been smacking down these ‘low-hanging buffoons’ (heh) since she came on the scene. I’m hoping for 6 years of excellent leadership from the lady. I’m counting this as campaign donations well spent.

    Her victory was quite possibly the high point of the election, second only to Rmoney’s defeat.

    I hope those who oppose her will continue to underestimate her.

    am I naive to be hopeful that Elizabeth Warren has a chance to win the 2016 Pres election, & perhaps being the 1st pro-99%/FDR-ish economic Progressive since LB Johnson?
