Garry Trudeau has a secret crush on Elizabeth Warren. I just know it.
I have followed her since GWB appointed her to TARP. At first I figured she was just another Corporate Stooge, since why else would GWB choose her? Then I heard her speak about Wall Street Greed and realized GWB made a mistake. A huge mistake. Elizabeth Warren was anathema to the mutual-hand-in-pocket Wall Street-J Street-Pennsylvania Avenue Collusion Club.
Then Obama came into Office and she ran into a Steel Wall when he chose her as the head of the new CPFB. When I heard the first time she was running for the Senate, I knew she'd win. She has the chance to be President someday, maybe the first. I'm going out on the limb. Why?
I heard Elizabeth Warren compared against lots of people. Her clear, no-nonsense words put the RW Media Circus to shame. She made Scott Brown look like a pettish, bragging light-weight, which he is. Sarah Palin dare not evoke comparison against Elizabeth Warren because only her shriek will survive it. Nobody in the #GOP compares with her, but do you know who she does compare well to? Barack Obama.
All due respect to Hillary, and she deserves that respect, but I think we're more likely to have a President Warren in our future.
Jeez, not much of a secret!
