Elizabeth Warren: Her Voice Was Breaking, But Her Voice Was Unboken
Elizabeth Warren's clear concise keynote address to Netroots Nation was very fine "left wing of the possible" politics. However close her competitor may be in the polls, I expect a resounding vote for the Democratic President in November to translate into a comparably resounding vote for Warren, especially given the clear match of her politics to those of her progressive state. It is the clarity of her framing of issues that is so encouraging for this progressive rhetorician -- I am not at all surprised that people are already singing "Warren for President in 2016!" (for a Senator, it would seem the thing is to reach up to the next rung of that ladder quickly, before an actually complex compromised Senatorial record accumulates to hold you where you are), and I daresay she will at least be a major contender for VP if Clinton doesn't run (tho' like everybody else I strongly suspect she will).
