Elizabeth Warren Reportedly Chosen For Seat On Key Senate Banking Committee

Incoming Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren will take office in January.

Massachusetts Senator-elect Elizabeth Warren has been chosen for a seat on the Senate's Banking Committee, according to the Huffington Post, which cited several sources. 

Warren, a Democrat who helped create the federal government's Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, defeated incumbent Republican Senator Scott Brown in the November election. Prior to being elected, Warren worked as a consumer advocated and was considered to become the head of the CFPB.

No, The facts are clear. how many Republicans get elected. I guess you support felons and drunks as well. As far as beating Coakley, she ran a horrible campaign, because she figured the election was in the bag. In state money, Stanford, Google Hollywood, when is that in state. My argument is not diminshed just because you do not agree. My point, let's see how she does before calling her great. I also stand by my comment about how this state votes, put a D behind the name and they win.

Ron" your comment:" I guess you support felons and drunks". what kind of idiotic remark is that? You can stand by anything you want. Says nothing. Massachusetts is a blue state . I see nothing wrong with that. So what. Most of the Southern States , Texas included and most of the Western States are Red. Put an "R" next to the name and they win. Both candidates received outside money- Brown got Bloomberg and Koch. Last election against Coakley, Brown got plenty of outside money. See the hidden tape of Brown pleading for money from David Kock at the San Antonio Country Club, Brown traveling to Texas to ask for cash? sure enough Brown voted against repealing oil subsidies. Surely you are not suggesting one is getting it and the other is not. In fact, all elections in the country get money from everywhere. What's your point?

tyler, would be better not to include "Idiotic" in trying to state your case. You loose credibility when you revert to insults.

Irene: your comment on the remark:" I guess you support felons and drunks". does that diminish anyone's credibility?

Tyler, Edward Kenndy was a drunk who killed a woman, Tierney is either dumb or a crook. Barney Frank's boyfriend ran a brothel out of his house. Three speakers of the state house of the house in a row wer indicted and two served time. Do you want me to go on. I am not arguing that Mass is not a blue state, it is and for that reason the bar is not too high when people vote for their favorite Dem. As far as fund raising goes, they all beg. Tyler, I stand by my comments and I will again say, why not wait to see how EW does before we annoint her as great.
