“I’m out there every single day in the middle of a huge fight, and it’s a fight about what this county is going to look like going forward,” Warren said. “The game is rigged.”
Colbert pressed her for details about the game.
“I’m talking about our country and how it’s run,” Warren said. “Here we are, the richest country on earth — we have so much going for us, and yet we have a federal government that works great for millionaires, it works great for billionaires, it works great for giant corporations.

For the rest of America, it’s just not working — and it’s time for us to take that government back and make it work for us.”

Come on. Tell me that THAT did not send a Chris Matthews style shiver up your leg.
