    I don't think Warren will be slow playing anything. I think her next stop is back in the executive branch, maybe as VP.

    But, if she has to remain in the Senate, I hope she slow-plays her time there like another guy that held that seat--slowly amassing power and pushing through major legislation to rein in these clowns.

    It would just be nice if she got a bit more cooperation than he did.

    •  Senatorial Courtesy lives? (0+ / 0-)

      Confirmation of Senators without debate used to be unquestioned.

      John Tower's nomination for Sec of Defense was not confirmed in 1989, but he was no longer a sitting Senator.

      President Cleveland (facing opposition) nominated a sitting Senator to the Supreme Court, so he would be confirmed without debate, by tradition. Which he was.

      And it seems Elizabeth Warren has substantial legal credibility.

      Warren Court?  Heads would explode in some quarters.
