Long before she gained prominence, as a progressive super star, I was a big fan of Elizabeth Warren and was bringing you reports on and video clips of her opposition to Banksters’ illegal and unethical practices. As a result the TBTF banks, which should still be broken up, have been moving heaven and earth trying to keep her off the Senate Banking Committee. Apparently, they have failed!

GREAT news! I have high hopes for her political career!

One of my early recollections of Sen.-Elect Warren was when she spoke truth to power and was heard and even those wanting to protect business accepted her facts as facts--these days that is a major accomplishment and may be something she brings to the committee even though a junior member.

I am thrilled to see her on this committee- who really has studied this as well? Go -- Elizabeth and think about 2016, not too soon for this powerhouse. She is a brilliant and dynamic leader.

This was indeed good news. I'm glad enough people are seeing this as well in her and had voted her into office.

Although Warren will be the junior member of that committee, she most likely has more knowledge than her counterparts on the same committee.

Ty, Tom.

This is the perfect committee for her! I can't wait to see her kick some WallStreet/Bank butt! She is and will be a force with which to be reckoned! One of my happiest moments in the Elections of 2012 was seeing her win!

Oh hip hip hooray! This is the best news. She may be a junior member but her intelligence and powerhouse personality and strength make her a major member in my book! TY Tom

I knew my donation to her campaign would not go to waste. She is the caliber of person we NEED in public office.

You don't have to be a big person to have a big heart! Elizabeth Warren will give the Senate Banking Committee a level of expertise and sophistication that it has likely not seen before as evidenced by the whining and shenanigans of Wall Street. I believe they are actually afraid of her. And all that for the most junior senator. I'll bet she will not be the one running out to get coffees. Here are a couple of comments from the article:

Halfcrazy — I might actually have to start watching C-span banking committee coverage now, if for nothing else just to see the criminal ceo's squirm when she questions them.

Don Anderson — This would be very, very cool. After the banking industry sleazebags pulled out all the stops to stonewall Ms. Warren's appointment to direct the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau in 2010 … it would be sweet justice to see her on the Banking Committee, putting them in the hot seat for a change.

What goes around comes around.

GO! Elizabeth Warren Go! The people need you!

Elizabeth Warren is a force to be reckoned with. I think the Republicans are going to regret the fact that they prevented her from being appointed as head of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Justice will be served!

If only all governments could consist of people like Elizabeth Warren, who are actually concerned with, and willing to fight for, the interests of the people.

Hearing of this appointment brightened my hopes for our survival in much the same manner as did hearing of President Obama's re-election.
