A nice intro and coming-home post on BMG from Elizabeth Warren, which while not broaching the subject of running for the US Senate seat, certainly gives off all the right signals, especially this:
I left Washington, but I don’t plan to stop fighting for middle class families. I spent years working against special interests and have the battle scars to show it – and I have no intention of stopping now. It is time for me to think hard about what role I can play next to help rebuild a middle class that has been hacked at, chipped at, and pulled at for more than a generation—and that that is under greater strain every day.
In the weeks ahead, I want to hear from you about the challenges we face and how we get our economy growing again. I also want to hear your ideas about how we can fix what all of us – regardless of party – know is a badly broken political system.
I myself am hoping she runs, and decides to jump in soon. This is about the time of year another candidate - a completely unknown quantity - began making the rounds ahead of his election. The year was 2005 and his name was Deval Patrick. If she can leverage her public profile (an advantage Patrick didn’t have) and get the campaign going right, she can win, and she’d clean Brown’s clock. Just the sort of candidate I, and many other progressives, might be looking for.
