    . . . actually sounds a lot like Warren's. She was not Ivy League-educated; she grew up without privilege, and put herself through college. Just as your "sheer force of will, bit of luck, and Panhandle political skills" (great description, by the way) landed you in a powerful position, Warren's self-motivation and hard work got her where she is. Unlike the Bushes and Romneys of the world, she didn't have anything handed to her. The fact that she ended up on the faculty at Harvard is purely her own achievement, which she accomplished outside the entrenched Ivy League world.

    29, chick, Jewish, solid progressive, NY-14 currently, FL-22 native, went to school in IL-01. Mitt Romney: the Kama Sutra candidate. There's no position he hasn't tried!
