It is sad but there are just not enough people like this in the Congress. They are the few, and we are lucky to have them.

This is why it is SOOOO important to keep the GOP clowns out of the White House: We are still feeling the results of the Reagan and Bush presidencies in a very live (albeit rotten from within), directly impacting way.
Impeaching Thomas and/or Scalia are not gong to be real options.

AHO!

Ah shucks too soon to give you another green star Kit.....

Well heck yes! Go Elizabeth. A woman to be proud of. Now if we had a Grayson/Warren ticket....hmmm or vice versa, I'd more than be happy to throw my vote to the Democrat Party with that duo. They are fighters for the people and not afraid to speak out.

Now if we can only get a bit more enthusiasm going in the crowd. I think everyone is still reeling from what the heck has happened to them this past decade or so. Come on people, stand up, cheer on these up and coming Leaders. You must have their back.

Drop her a line, tell her your listening, even if you are not from her State. Thank her, encourage her.

Elizabeth Warren for President!!!! This lady is one class act -
As for the Supreme Court - no real surprise there, only that someone dares to say it out loud. But if we can't go through them, we'll just have to go Around them.....

I love her in the Senate. I want her in the Senate. But I would also love her to be our first female President. And be the one to replace those corporate shills she was railing against. We need so many more in the Senate and the House just like her. That is the pool our next generation of leaders must come from. Not the crusty rich white fools from whom we have been forced to choose in the past, but a brave and brilliant cadre of political newcomers, at least to the national stage, of women. Men will continue what they have been doing forever, it will take women to get us out of the mess those men have created. Men will do nothing but dance to the tune of money and power, women will restore dignity, fairness and honesty to the wretched realm of politics. It is time the reins of power change from the male gender to female. It just is. And watching Elizabeth Warren speak her truth, the truth, is just one proof of that.

This lady give me faith that the system can still be salvaged. We need more people like her at every level of politics in the U.S. and Canada. You wouldn't mind if we borrowed her for awhile would you.

The prospect of a Republican president, any Republican, being the one to nominate for the next SCOTUS vacancy just gives me the heebie-jeebies. As does the prospect of states which are already digging into voting rights having Republican governors overseeing redistricting in 2020. I really don't think most people understand how fast our system of checks and balances can descend into self-perpetuating evil if we forget how much every elected office matters. And every committee. If I try to take the position, for instance, that because I live in Colorado I don't need to worry who is running in, for instance, Iowa - well, let's just say I would be wrong. And, no, Craig, you can't borrow her or Bernie Sanders. We need them too badly. Go find your own - I am sure they are up there - somewhere.

Go, Senator Warren, you are the breath of fresh air we have been looking for. Hopefully, you can give more courage to your fellow dems. Show them how it's done. What it is to be a Senator, it's not about collecting money from big corps and lobbyists. I watched her speech and Mr. Trumka's speech, as well as some others. These 2 were spectacular. We could use him in the Senate too. Thanks for the post, my dear friend.

Bravo, Sentor Warren! She has more integrity in her little finger than 98% of the members of the Congress and the House put together. She gives me hope. We need her to run for President. Thank you, Kit!

Great video. Thanks, Kit. The "increasing corporate capture of the federal courts" is a huge problem, says Elizabeth. The Supreme Court is becoming ever more corrupt. The unions have been gutted. We're lucky that Warren could get anywhere at all in the Washington cesspool as it is today. I will write her, Dandelion. Thanks for the link.

Elizabeth Warren: Finally saying out loud what a lot of us figured out some time ago.

Too bad the people who most need to hear won't listen.

There was a phrase often used in the day of JFK that became a book title: "The best and the brightest." Senator Warren fits that description and how it was used back then--and more in Congress would have been described as bright back then, too, and many fit the profile of service to the people. We need the rules, statutes and regulations to return to a loftier standard and set of expectations of those who get elected.

Yep, Elizabeth Warren is among the best and brightest. Senator Bernie Sanders is now 72 and may be thinking about retirement (I hope not) and we have so few really honest people from any party in the Congress. People that are in the Congress for the sole purpose of what they can do for the people, not what corporate money can do for them.

If I were Queen for the day, I would purpose that each and every tax payer give $10.00 to an election pool. All of that money is then given in equal amount to all candidates. Democrats, Republicans, Green Party, Libertarians, Justice, Socialist, Dog and Cat party, Paint your body orange party, each get the same amount of money, each must show a full and complete accounting of every cent and each will debate with no fore knowledge of the questions. Any other money used or spent on an election would be completely illegal, punishable by a long term in prison and every one without exception is brought to justice.

That's how you clean this up.

From your mouth to Campaign Reform, Kit. Love Warren, love Sanders, and wish we could clone each of them - enough to replace every GOPTP, and corrupt Dems. Still can't give you another star but you deserve it. Thanks.

What a disgrace! How does the Supreme Court live with itself? Probably by not having a conscience. Ms. Warren, on the other hand, is an exemplary patriot. She's one rare, special lady. Kudos to her! What's that saying? From her mouth to God's ears!!!!

She is 100% correct...just look at the decisions, that the Supreme Court since they gave the Election to Bush in 2000...They have absolutely brought this Country and it's Citizens to our knees, with the decisions they've ruled on since then...And in the process they've destroyed the Constitution and our Civil Rights...

One of the few politicians I actually like - intelligent; passionate; experienced and very articulate. Were you taking notes King Barky? She didn't even use a teleprompter.

Noted. Thanks, Kit. Glad to see so many fans of Warren here. She'd have my vote for Pres. in a heartbeat, too! For all the above mentioned reasons. I don't know if she wants the job, but she sure is needed. Wendy Davis, (the wonderful member of the TX legislature), for VP!

Hey, watch that Lois. We have plans for Wendy right here in Texas. You can have her later.

She's awesome and incredible in my eyes and tells it like it is plain and simple without flowery language or the use of smoke and mirrors. If we couldn't get Hilary in office as first female president Elizabeth Warren has my vote. She'd be awesome in just about any elected post though.
Thanks Kit.

I would support Ms. Warren for any office pursued--but in order for me to vote, it would have to be a national office, Still, I hope she remains in the public eye and continues to use her skills in the public sector, as that's where she's most needed.

Senator Warren is worth her weight in gold to all of us who understand how very rare an honest politician is in the USA. We can count them on one hand. OMG let's hope Senator Sanders doesn't retire. He is taking on Wall Street right now. TY Kit Noted
