“Senator Warren” – that still feels GREAT to say!

She had this to say about Barney Frank:

   U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren called retiring Bay State Congressman Barney Frank an “extraordinary” choice to temporarily fill John Kerry’s seat yesterday, adding to what mounted to an impassioned stump speech for the Newton Democrat.

    Warren, speaking at a mock swearing-in ceremony to celebrate her admission as Massachusetts’ first female U.S. senator, lauded Frank for his fiscal prowess, calling him “my tutor, my guide” and a “champion” of consumer protection.

    “There is no one in or out of Washington who has worked harder on financial issues than Barney,” Warren said at Roxbury Community College yesterday as Patrick sat nearby on stage. “During the great financial crisis of our lifetime, Barney provided unparalleled insight and extraordinary leadership, resulting in landmark legislation.”

    Speaking afterward to reporters, Warren heaped more praise upon Frank.

    “Congressman Frank understands the workings of financial markets in ways that are unmatched,” she said. “If he is appointed to be a senator, I have no doubt he will be extraordinary.”

Nay-saying below the orange peel;

Doug Rubin, described by the right wing-y Boston Herald as "Patrick's former top political strategist" and a "mastermind," gets ink by saying there are better choices than Frank.
The comments posted there agreeing with him range from disgusting to vile.

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.
