Our moment of Zen. Elizabeth Warren's interview with Stephen Colbert.

I swear every time I see an interview with Elizabeth Warren I cannot help but wish SHE were one of our choices in this primary.

Because let me tell you that if she were in the race, it would change EVERYTHING!

And by the way, that's change I can believe in.

    She is the BEST. It may well be she will eventually be the one that makes Wall Street and the banks accountable. We can hope. Go get 'em Elizabeth!

    I thought it was really sweet that the band played 'You Are My Sunshine' as she walked on set.

    Luv Elizabeth Warren. But let me just say, that if Hillary Clinton had tweeted what she tweeted and said what she just said, every one would be bashing Hillary for getting down in the dirt and fighting dirty.

    1. Of course it would be very different if Hillary sent that tweet as she is in the same race as Trump. Elizabeth is outside the race and can pretty much tell it as it is, truthfully :)

    She obviously doesn't want to be president. In her position she is free to say all of this. I want her as senate majority leader.

    You wish Warren were in the race, implying that you would support her over HRC. and HRC over Bernie.

    This makes my head hurt.

    Elizabeth Warren is right where she needs to be, as she said. The best to have replaced Ted Kennedy for representation of her state; Cosmo centerfold Scott Brown, are you kidding me? LOL

    If anyone in this country understands how civics work, it is so all fired important that everyone vote in mid-terms because a president can do nothing without a congress behind him/her as we have seen ad nauseum the last eight years.

    She is one of the few public servants in America today. I applaud her honesty, loyalty and integrety. That's what our Congress SHOULD consist of.

    gryphen, how would warren being in the race "change everything" when warren holds the same positions that sanders holds? if you appreciate warren so much then it is confusing that you are advocating for clinton when warren holds the same positions as sanders.

      Warren doesn't hold all the same positions that Sanders holds. One example: She's been working for debt-free college which is Clinton's position.

    EW is the greatest. She tye4lls it like it is. I'd vote for her in a heartbeat.

    However, she is doing a great job in the Senate, and her momentum would be shackled as President.

    Oh Donnie boy, you ain't seen nuthin' yet. If you're the sorry ass GOP nominee, Obama is gonna take you down.

    Obama goes radioactive on Trump

    The Republican front-runner's suggestion to blow up decades of non-proliferation policy provokes the president.

    The president said Trump’s comments about nuclear weapons show he “doesn’t know much” about proliferation.

      What does her being a woman have to do with anything? Are you trying to prove you're not sexist?

    Pols understand that on the campaign trail the VP candidate has the job of being the hatchet-man or in this case woman. She is saying the right things to position herself as the VP candidate. I know some think she is good where she is and they are right BUT she can do a LOT as VP and as VP candidate such as bringing in these bernie-bros that are threatening to sink the Dems by sitting this one out. We can't have another 2010 type result. WE. CAN'T. If she is looking for the big seat at ANY time, the time is NOW. Smart pols know that one has to work ahead to set oneself up for the big seat as Hillary has including taking the SoS job after the 2008 loss which set her up for now.

      The Bernie Bros went after her when she failed to endorse Sanders. They called her a sellout and a Shill for Clinton (even though she also didn't endorse Clinton). Those assholes don't deserved to be catered to.

  25. Leave Warren in the Senate where she's doing great things. While I'd like to see her as president some day, I have the feeling that she knows she would disappoint her "true believers", as did Obama, merely by having to engage in the workings of government. She's better where she it, taking over the mantle of her predecessor, Teddy Kennedy, as a Lion of the Senate.
