Perhaps the reference was to GOP " dark money" from the super pacs who don't have to disclose.

Yeah Elizabeth Warren, a strong progressive voice! Maybe she can be the VP nominee in 2016.

Northeastern liberal college Professor..not a great idea for a national election, IMO. Definitely not a good VP choice for Hillary if she changes her mind about retiring.

I read that 1.2 billion was spent on Romney, 1 billion Obama. But 40% of Romney's campaign money came from SuperPACS, while only 12% did for Obama.

Yeah, I'm glad that the guy designated, through tipping the balance of Reps-Dems, to shoot down the Affordable Care Act, and a product of Catholic Boston College Law School who simultaneously was a nude centerfold in some magazine, has been kicked out on his ass. The rest of us take out student loans. We don't put our junk on display for public consumption and to make a quick buck.

You mean like the liberal college professor Obama? The one who was just reelected?

Warren's "creation" the Consumer Protection Bureau is simply another unnecessary government bureaucracy enforcing laws that other government bureaucracies are too stupid, lazy, or incompetent to enforce themselves. It will protect irresponsible people to the detriment of responsible people. Fees that were levied against delinquent customers will now be spread out among all customers making banking for the responsible people more expensive.
I won'y use the word "facts" because those are largely ignored, so...here are the truisms...

Scott Brown was a favorite of Wall Street who put up a facade af being this down to earth kind of guy. He had no choice but to be a moderate in blue Massachusettes. It's not for nothing that Wall Street threw so much money into his campaign to beat Warren.

Elizabeth Warren Explains What We Can Expect from the New Consumer Agency
The Harvard law professor, who is coordinating the creation of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, sets her sights on simplified forms for credit cards and mortgages

Sorry, but I do not see an agency that protects the consumer from bad banking and credit card practices can be seen as anything but a good thing. As for your claim, please provide a link that backs it up.

Warren will most definitely be on the 2016 ticket. 2nd only to Hillary Clinton, she throws Republicans into uncontrollable spasms of rage.

However, I don't think Hillary will run. The Democrats should nominate another moderate left of Center govenor like Bill Clinton was, and Warren will bring in the Far Left. For President I think the Democratic candidate will be Hickenlooper (CO), Richardson (NM), Warner (VA), or Kaine (VA).

Actually, the more I think about it, that's a really great idea.
