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