    I missed it last night. I especially liked where Warren said,

    "Our job in oversight is not to say, 'Oh good, they’ve got it! We can relax now.' Our job in oversight is to push."  

    That is also how I view my role too as an informed voting citizen.

    The Clinton Administration screwed over the oversight capability of Brooksley Born regarding CDS's in the 90's, contributing greatly to the clusterfuck economy which we are now enduring.

    It would be a very good thing for Elizabeth Warren to take charge of the Consumer Protection Agency and for the White House not to obstruct transparent and functional oversight in the same way as did Summers and Rubin under Clinton, this time around.

    Elizabeth Warren is the obvious and perfect choice for directing the CPA.

      I believe the American people ought to be a part of the conversation about what's happening in our economy, and what's happening in Washington, and what's happening on Wall Street. I truly believe, that if the insiders get together and rewrite all the rules, those will be rules that benefit the insiders and the rest of America will be left out of it.

      Education is too big to fail. Truth is too big to fail. Justice is too big to fail. Peace is too big to fail.
