    I'm with Hey Mister:  produce your evidence.  I don't buy it, and I'm not sure I believe Andrews' article.  I'm also not sure that Elizabeth Warren is all that much different from the rest of the politicians - she's very articulate about one subject, but her web site is nothing but a grab for money, it's impossible to find out where she's going to appear next, and she hasn't given her positions on anything but finance.

    And worst of all?  She hasn't said a WORD about the arrests at Occupy Boston.  Not one.  Those people are out there challenging the very banks she decries, and she hasn't so much as sent them a box of doughnuts or paid them an anonymous visit.  All she's done is crow about how much money she's raised, and y'know?  That's just not good enough.

      The women he interviewed agree with his portrayal of their conversations.

      I also choose to believe Elizabeth Warren, as do most others familiar with her work. She's been an upstanding, honest public advocate so far and there's nothing to indicate her account in the VF interview is dishonest.  

      You should make up your mind about her record, praising her, then condemning her from comment to comment in this forum.

        Right now I see both good ideas and bad execution.  Giving her a free pass because of a couple of videos and a lot of adulation? Not going to happen.
