Elizabeth Warren has only been on the campaign trail for a few weeks in her MA run for the Senate against Sen. Scott Brown. Already, however, she is exciting many Democrats and worrying some Republicans.
If you haven’t heard or read much about her, check out what she said recently:
I hear all this, you know, “Well, this is class warfare, this is whatever.”—No!
There is nobody in this country who got rich on his own. Nobody.
You built a factory out there—good for you! But I want to be clear.
You moved your goods to market on the roads the rest of us paid for.
You hired workers the rest of us paid to educate.
You were safe in your factory because of police forces and fire forces that the rest of us paid for.
You didn’t have to worry that marauding bands would come and seize everything at your factory, and hire someone to protect against this, because of the work the rest of us did.
Now look, you built a factory and it turned into something terrific, or a great idea—God bless. Keep a big hunk of it.
But part of the underlying social contract is you take a hunk of that and pay forward for the next kid who comes along.
And if you have a bit of time and want to listen to candidate Warren to make your own judgment, check out this interview below. Stick with it for the second half, when you suddenly realize that perhaps she is indeed a different sort of values candidate.

Warren may be the most exciting Democratic candidate to come along since…
And the Republicans may come to rue the day they fought to keep her out of the Obama administration.
