      You intimated in your post that Warren was somehow elitist, and that Brown was more regular guy and that many people in MA could fall for that schtick and were somehow turned off of her Harvard connections. Rightly or wrongly I understand the point you re making.

      The commenter then pointed out that far from it, Elizabeth Warren, just like Brown, background and uprbringing was one of humble beginnings and poverty.

      The big difference is that Warren is grateful for those safety nets and government assitance her family had in their time of need..they helped build her, and she knows and realizes it. She is thankful. Not Brown, he is bitter and now that he is successful, wants to decimate and
       cut government programs that helped families like his and Elizabeth's. He got his now he wants to cut off those below beneath him.

      Perhaps Warren needs to remind voters of her humble beginnings and how similar they are to Browns.But most improtantly contrast how she is grateful and that still supports the safety nets that helped her unlike her opponent.

      Perhaps Brown is better at selling this regular guy image and humble beginnings, more so than Warren and that
      Warren is elitist,but in reality that couldnt be further from the truth.

      Maybe Warren needs to make that case better...and remind voters how clear the choice is between her and Brown.
      Both came from humble beginnings and safety nets helped them, now that both are successful, only one of them wants to ensure others from their same upbringing have those safety nets in place. She understands the need for those safety nets, he could care less for those regular people, now that he benefitted from them but no longer needs them.

      The Plutocratic States of America, the best government the top 1% and corporations can buy. We are the 99%-OWS.
