Well, does our country belong to the millionaires and the Wall Street traders?
E Warren would hammer away at the gap between executive pay and average wages and keep telling us that the rules need to take care of the little people

I like the sound of that, though I like the sound of President Hillary Clinton, too. Guess we'll just have to wait and see....
Thanks for the article, Cal.

Nightmare as well for the sick..
I used to really like her,she seemed really smart and logical
then she decimated her opponent with slandering medical marijuana
so, I being a patient myself would be very worried about Ms.Warren in any higher position.
I think Hillary is ok but is part of the white house for way too long, Now someone with a heart and a head would do the job for me,female or male .black white,asian, latino or even dare I say native American?

Thanks for posting Cal. As an outside observer, I find American political discourse and Corporate America's business rhetoric to be truly fascinating.

Sounds great to me. Capitalism slides too easily into Vulture Capitalism. Regulation is essential. Otherwise, it's always the barbarians at the gate and through the gate.

tasunka! Ajo!
You left WAKAN off you avi.
Warren is concerned about us all collectively. She can still do good for the future if we are not so Wasichu.

Warren will never be a candidate for individuals, she will also not lead into despair. She will attack those that lead to poverty for a nation. Time to pony up!

This is my point - we have a choice of another - plutocrat (Hillary) or the idea of one woman who might dismember this god damned plutocracy! Warren is a very good option!

Really, if Hillary was her only competition from the democrats, but I cannot imagine that to be the case.

I think Elizabeth Warren is needed more in Congress than as the President. We need more people like Warren in Congress. As an example, look at the Green Party. Reading their platform, it sounds great but if they were elected as the President and Vice President, I don't think Congress would have worked with them anymore than Congress has worked with Obama. The President is almost just a figurehead. The only thing going for him is line item veto.

How's about Warren in 2024 after 2 terms for Hillary? I'd call that the best of both worlds...

It was Bill Clinton that gave us NAFTA that sent many of our jobs overseas.

It was Bill Clinton that removed the Glass-Steagall Act that took down the final barrier allowing for the Wall St. Gamblers to have a field day with the economy.

Credit default swaps and derivatives and a host of other scams along with the Housing Market boom and crash, leaving millions of homes in foreclosure and millions of others in a home that is now underwater.

I can't think of a more perfect storm to suck the life out of the middle class than what happened with NAFTA and removal of Glass-Steagall. Sure it was Republican policy that was wanted but it was Bill Clinton that did the signing in.......he didn't have to.......he did.

I'm not so sure I want Hillary Clinton so close to the hip of Bill Clinton to be President.

I'd much rather go with Elizabeth Warren........and Alan Grayson.

Warren Grayson ticket......................or Grayson Warren ticket.......either way would be fine with me.

Individual States are moving along with the medical marijuana so I don't think I'd worry too much on Elizabeth on that one issue. That she will stand up to the Bankers and Wall Street and Alan Grayson also stood up to the Bankers and the Housing mess and dug into their robo foreclosures and such and he has been loud and clear in the need for Universal Health Care. Well the two of them make a great team in my opinion.

Yes Dandelion it was Clinton who did that but it was Reagan who ceded total control of all the money through the Money Control Act of 1980/81. It was Nixon who took us off the gold standard. It has been a piecemeal operation over a long period of time that is leading us down the path of destruction. Look at the graduated income tax that was supposed to be discontinued after WW1. Thanks Wilson! In order to stem the tide you have to change the system and that begins with campaign finance reform and spending and the outlawing of lobbyists on behalf of corporations and foreign nationals.
I don't have a problem with her being POTUS. I think she'd be a fine one provided the system reforms and changes are implemented. You could put JC in there and even he would have trouble.

Independent Community Bankers of America CEO Kenneth Guenther captured the audacity of the deal in an interview with Frontline:

Here you have the leadership — Sandy Weill of Travelers and John Reed of Citicorp — saying, “Look, the Congress isn’t moving fast enough. Let’s do it on our own. To heck with the Congress. Let us effect this.” And so they move towards effecting it, and they get the blessing of the chairman of the Federal Reserve system in early April, when legislation is pending. I mean, this is hubris in the worst sense of the word. Who do they think they are? Other people, firms, cannot act like this. … Citicorp and Travelers were so big that they were able to pull this off. They were able to pull off the largest financial conglomeration — the largest financial coming together of banking, insurance, and securities — when legislation was still on the books saying this was illegal. And they pulled this off with the blessings of the president of the United States, President Clinton; the chairman of the Federal Reserve system, Alan Greenspan; and the secretary of the treasury, Robert Rubin. And then, when it’s all over, what happens? The secretary of the treasury becomes the vice chairman of the emerging Citigroup.

I am aware of the policies that Reagan and Nixon placed in, is why I've said on other threads, both Parties have had their hand in leading us to the place we are now. But as we were speaking about the women here I brought up Clinton. Had Barbara Bush been thrown in for a female Candidate I'd brought up the Bush males. It was Sandy Weill that then President Clinton handed the pen over to after signing for the removal of our final protections.

Too many still want to keep supporting one of these two Parties that has led us here. I'm also tired of the dynasty of one family or another, Father Bush then his son, now I hear talk of his brother Jeb. Now husband and wife Clinton.

Geezzzz...Enough already. I'll stick by the Grayson Warren ticket or vice versa, that is the only way I'd vote for the Democrats after this mess and forget the Republicans they need to go the way of the Whig Party. I'm supporting 3rd Parties such as the Green Party or Justice Party unless they show me a ticket that I mentioned. Grayson is at least warning us on the TPP that Obama seems to be moving forward with. TPP is NAFTA on a big dose of steroids, and we see how wonderful NAFTA has been for us....not.

Some combination of Warren Grayson Sanders Gillibrand is my dream team too. BUT here is what i don't want. I don't want the Democrats to put up candidates who are so good that the Rethuglicans are able to terrify the electorate so badly with the spectre of Socialism that they lose and we are stuck with a Republican administration for four, maybe eight years, and maybe without a Democratic controlled House and/or Senate. I'm sorry but I cannot think of a better way to condemn the world to die from climate change really fast (those of us who survive the botched illegal abortions, the starvation, and the denial of life saving medical techniques.) Rather than see that I would put up with Hillary. Besides, she stuck with Bill, yes, but she does have her own mind and could surprise us.

Noted. Oh, that is funny! I can just see the cartoons now.....Warren with a big hammer going after the greedy, thieving Wall St. bunch as they run screaming. She's my top choice for Pres. and I'd definitely give her my vote. On the topic of cannabis, although I feel very strongly about MMJ, I think we can get that pushed through on a nationwide basis in the next 3 years....so we have to make that a moot point by 2016. People are working hard on that as I type, and this weeks issue of The Nation's front page has a great article regarding how to do it.

Polls coming out if there is a choice between Hilary and Warren......Warren is in the lead. Too many are now aware at the close ties the Clinton's have to Wall Street. People are sick and tired of it and finally they are seeing someone who is intelligent and breaking from the pack, that is Elizabeth. Sanders is an Independent so would not be on the Democratic ticket, he also has said awhile back he would not run for President.

Another poll that has come out said 2/3 of Democrats are now pulling away from the Wall Street Corporate and going towards a more populous view. Hey, they do that they have my attention. Also even Republican voters are pulling away from their leadership and are saying they want minimum wage raised agree with the Democrats on that. We have a push now with the Democrats to try to get that raised before the end of year. I think the message is finally beginning to take hold and people are hurting and sick of it, they will now begin to listen to what is populous messages.

I would work for Warren because she is the only possible candidate who would truly serve the people. We must have a leader committed to the people rather than the corporations and the wealthy. Thank you for the news.
