InfoElizabeth Warren says she “came up the hard way…out of a hard-working middle class family in an America that created opportunities for kids like me.” She has made her life’s work fighting for middle class families. The Boston Globe calls her “… the plainspoken voice of people getting crushed by so many predatory lenders and under regulated banks.” TIME magazine has called her a “New Sheriff of Wall Street” and has twice included her among America’s 100 most influential people. She’s taken on big banks and financial institutions to win historic new financial protections for middle class families.

Elizabeth learned first-hand about the economic pressures facing middle class families. When she was twelve, her dad suffered a heart attack. The store where he worked changed his job and cut his pay, and the medical bills piled up. The family lost their car, and her mom went to work answering phones at Sears to pay the mortgage.

Elizabeth got her first job at nine, babysitting for a family across the street from her house. She started waiting tables at 13 at her Aunt Alice’s Mexican restaurant. All three of her brothers served in the military. She got married at 19, and after graduating from college, started teaching in elementary school. Her first baby, a daughter Amelia, was born when Elizabeth was 22.

When Amelia was two, Elizabeth started law school. Shortly after she graduated, her son Alex was born. She practiced law out of her living room, but she soon returned to teaching. Elizabeth has been a law professor at Harvard for nearly 20 years and has written nine books, including two national best-sellers, and more than a hundred articles. National Law Journal named her one of the Most Influential Lawyers of the Decade, and she has been honored by the Massachusetts Women’s Bar Association with the Lelia J. Robinson Award.

In the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis, Elizabeth served as Chair of the Congressional Oversight Panel for the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP). Her independent and tireless efforts to protect taxpayers, to hold Wall Street accountable, and to ensure tough oversight of both the Bush and Obama Administrations won praise from both sides of the aisle. The Boston Globe named Elizabeth Bostonian of the Year in 2009 for her oversight efforts.

She is widely credited for the original thinking, political courage, and relentless persistence that led to the creation of a new consumer financial protection agency, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. She led the establishment of the agency, building the structure and organization to hold accountable even trillion-dollar financial institutions and to protect consumers from financial tricks and traps often hidden in mortgages, credit cards and other financial products.

Elizabeth and her husband Bruce Mann, who was born and grew up in the Boston area, have been married for 31 years and now have three grandchildren. They live in Cambridge with their golden retriever, Otis.

I'm very impressed by her. She seems to be a true progressive voice lately and I didn't think Scott Brown was beatable.

Ralphie: Did she really just ask Cher to play a fundraiser for her?

These aren't from her account. She hasn't tweeted since the 4th.

These are probably what twitter ranked as "top tweets" that include @elizabethforma

Warren should just buy a truck! That'll get the people on her side!

So now it's bad to go to Harvard? Doesn't it take hard work to get there? I never understood the bashing of academia but I never paid enough attention to the politics of the teacher to be "brainwashed". Don't they get their ideas from intellectuals as well? When people bring up the brainwashing aspect, it's insulting to the bright student.

I didn't say it was a bad thing to be from Harvard, nor do I personally think that possessing the qualities of an "elitist" is a bad thing; rather, I think that the public wouldn't take kindly to it, as stupid of a reason as that is to vote against someone.

Admission to Harvard is a greater indicator of being from a wealthy or influential family than it is of intelligence.

I agree that having attended Harvard is a dumb reason to vote against someone, but at the same time it's also not worthy of the pedestal it's placed on. Heaven forbid someone attend Tulane, USC or even *gasp* a public university.

The thing is that she teaches at Harvard. She graduated from Oklahoma State University for her undergraduate stuff and got her law degree from Rutgers. Neither school is particularly elitist, though Rutgers would like you to think it belongs in that class.

Poll Suggests Harvard Jabs Not Effective - [Link]
Just 13% of registered voters said they were "less likely" to vote for Warren because she works at Harvard, while 21% said it made them "more likely" to back her and 63% said it "makes no difference" in how they would vote.

Bush went to Yale, but I don't ever recall him being called an elitist scholarly snob :)

GWB is pretty much the epitome of elite -- son of a President and grandson of a Senator; family connections helped him get into Andover prep school, Yale, and Harvard Business School; connections also handed him business opportunities and then bailed him out when he screwed them up.

So I'm guessing that whole "remember when Warren said she was part injun" thing from the Brown campaign isn't doing much.

I don't think it even appeals to Jason, at least not really. That's one of those intentional trolling things he sometimes does.

The same thing that happened to Scott Brown's Senate career.
