boomer1949 On January - 24 - 2010

Elizabeth Warren went to Washington the day after the Democrats were humiliated in Massachusetts January 19, 2010.

All I can say is it’s about damn time!

ON THE day after Tuesday’s electoral loss, the Obama administration brought an unfamiliar face to the White House – Elizabeth Warren, the Harvard Law professor noted for her staunch advocacy on behalf the middle class and fierce criticism of the bank bailouts. Perhaps the administration will take a more aggressive approach to Wall Street, along the lines of what Warren wants. But for Democrats to truly take ownership of the economic crisis, Warren will need to play a more prominent role. Not just her ideas, but the force of her personality is needed.

President Obama needs to listen and take her input seriously.

    There’s a request going around for people to send this message to the White House comments page (http://www.whitehouse.gov/contact): Please listen to Elizabeth Warren.

    Perhaps if a few million of us to it, they might get the message. Pass it on.

    She does have a Congressional appointment right now. Knowing how Congress has such large and fragile egos perhaps Obama has been afraid to consult with her. That said; What Tiger said: “Bout F’n Time”! Obama has also been starting to listen to Paul Volker, which is a good sign. IMHO

    I have heard she is penciled in for the head of the new Consumer Financial Protection Agency. It’s her idea, she should be in charge. (it will be filibustered)

      She has been the only person who is making any sense to me in all this economic mess…

      Egos, what a crock. Everyone is more concerned about beating around the bush, hiding in the shadows, for fear of offending one of the Yahoos who hasn’t accomplished a darn thing. It never ceases to amaze me how many of these “elected” men and women are more concerned with stepping on toes and corporate funding, rather than representing their constituents.

      Jeeze, it isn’t rocket science. I would give anything to have a beer with the President.
