(Elizabeth Warren/Facebook)
In her first Democratic debate last night, Elizabeth Warren showed further depth in her personality by delivering a couple of zingers on Republican Scott Brown. Here's one:
"Forbes magazine named Scott Brown Wall Street's favorite senator. I was thinking that's probably not an award I'm going to get."

As good as that was, Warren wasn't done:

She also made the audience laugh and applaud with the second question, which asked each candidate how they paid for college, since Brown posed nude for Cosmopolitan to pay.

"I kept my clothes on," she quipped. She added that she borrowed money to go to a public university and had a part-time job.

The Boston Herald, not exactly known as a left-wing publication, went with the headline "Warren shines in debate debut." You can watch the full replay of the debate on their website.

Warren and Brown remain locked in a tight race, with Public Policy Polling showing Warren up 46-44, and Princeton Survey Research showing Brown ahead 41-38.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
