    who was one of FDR's more inspired choices.

    A pity Obama wasn't as inspired.  Elizabeth Warren could have done just as much for his administration--and us 99%ers--as Ms Perkins did then.

      I suppose that's true, but Eleanor became FDR's legs, as it were.  There is a famous political cartoon showing two coal miners in W.Va. sitting in the mine eating their lunch and looking up only to see Mrs. R. Hallooing from the cave entry.  I recall one of them saying, Well, if it isn't Mrs. Roosevelt.  Except for the folks who called FDR "That Man in the White House," she became much loved and inspirational during very bad times.  I see that same lovable/likable appeal in Elizabeth Warren.
