You never bite the hand that feeds you.
Elizabeth Warren is widely credited for the original thinking, political courage, and relentless persistence that led to the creation of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB)—and as an assistant to President Barack Obama and special adviser to the Secretary of the Treasury, Elizabeth led the establishment of the consumer agency to protect consumers from financial tricks and traps often hidden in mortgages, credit cards, and other financial products.
Wall Street opposed the CFPB, and they didn’t want Elizabeth—the agency’s biggest champion—to run it. So after Senate Republicans vowed to block Elizabeth’s nomination to serve as the first director of the CFPB, she ran for the United States Senate in her home state of Massachusetts. Elizabeth won—and then she won again. Elizabeth Warren has served as the Bay State’s Senior Senator since 2013.
Elizabeth Warren and her husband Bruce Mann have been married for 38 years. They have three grandchildren and a golden retriever named Bailey.
"A voter approaches you and says, 'Senator, I am old-fashioned, and my faith teaches me that marriage is between one man and one woman.' What is your response?" Cox asked.
"Well, I'm going to assume it's a guy who said that," Warren replied. "And I'm going to say then just marry one woman. I'm cool with that."
After waiting a beat or two through some applause, she added "Assuming you can find one."
Ouch! I'm not so sure about that last part, but the straight-up advice to just go ahead and marry that One Woman seems sound enough. Just quit telling other folks who to love and whom to marry, and all will be well.
Warren is not a 'centrist'. She was left of Obama, remember? And Obama was a centrist.
(am I the only one who now yawns when she goes there)
Quite sad that she didn't include RED.
As the Ukraine scandal continues to dominate the headlines, former Vice President Joe Biden remains the most-mentioned candidate on cable news. But even though Biden has been getting so much attention, Sen. Elizabeth Warren has been slowly and steadily rising in popularity (although not at his expense). Last Tuesday, Warren surpassed Biden in the RealClearPolitics average of polls for the first time. It should come as no surprise, then, that Warren is the next most-mentioned candidate on cable news after Biden and that her share of coverage increased last week from the previous week, according to data from the TV News Archive,1 which chops up TV news into 15-second clips.
But Warren’s rise in coverage isn’t all about how well she’s doing in the polls, and it’s also not evenly distributed across the three networks that we monitor (CNN, Fox News and MSNBC). This week she was mentioned in 327 clips on Fox News, but only 176 on MSNBC and 108 on CNN, marking the second week in a row that she has been mentioned significantly more on Fox News compared to the other networks.
