Comments on: Appointing Warren http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2010/09/16/appointing-warren/ A slice of lime in the soda Sun, 26 Oct 2014 19:05:02 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: IntoTheTardis http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2010/09/16/appointing-warren/comment-page-1/#comment-18476 Fri, 17 Sep 2010 14:05:11 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/?p=5387#comment-18476 Elizabeth Warren is the right man for the job. I mean that in the best possible way. Every time I see her on TV I think to myself, “Jesus, this woman is talking straight and she’s not waffling or using mealy-mouthed code words!” She’s clearly not a politician. She doesn’t seem beholden to anyone. And she so clearly doesn’t give a whit about her image. If she ran for president she’d have my vote.

That said, I do think this is a way a of getting Warren involved without giving her the top job.

As part of prepping for midterms & fundraising, lots of supporters wanted to see him appoint Warren. So he did – for this position. It doesn’t help him with the confirmation problem later, and I bet he doesn’t know what he’ll do about that. But for now it helps with elections and fundraising (and she’s right for the job of course – that goes without saying).

Now? Perhaps he is putting Warren onto the bench so he can bring her out guns blazing in an election blitz. Ah, if only he had the nerve. I love her.

It’s about time someone in office made it clear (and backed up the talk) that they are out defending the people’s rights… the more gov’t and business bemoan her, the more likely it is that she really is the genuine article and should be holding the directorship! And it’s hard to take Pethokoukis seriously when he continually refers to Larry Kudlow as ‘the Great One’ and has one and only one answer to solve deficit issues: tax breaks for the rich and business ugh!
