Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.

ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.

  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

inauguration? What are your thoughts on an Obama second term? How will Elizabeth Warren impact the Senate and the administration?

Intro

You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

I am so ecstatic that Elizabeth Warren is in the Senate. I know she will push Democrats to hold the line at their Democratic values. I am confident she will be a key player in MAKING filibuster reform happen. Harry Reid's honoring of Elizabeth Warren to the Senate Banking Committee gives me optimism and hope for the future.

Elizabeth Warren and President Obama are very good friends. Elizabeth Warren has NEVER said she felt betrayed by Obama. She has always praised him and respected him. Richard Cordray is doing a fantastic job at the Consumer financial protection agency. We have made strides towards regulating Wall Street.

However, there is much more to do. There is sugarcoating that. We are not at the end point. The White House has to do some things much better regarding Wall Street reform, finance, and accountability. There is more and better work to do for housing still. We still need to work on other chronic problems and push the overton window back left (which I feel is starting to buckle back left).

I know President Obama wants to have a productive second term. President Obama is responsive to people like Elizabeth Warren and others from the left as long as we really organize and MAKE him be better and do it. I feel the grassroots and left are really starting to become a force now in holding people accountable and pushing people. We need to build that long term starting on the ground. That is how the right got so powerful.

What do you think?
