Only problem is that Warren is as beholden to corporate interests as Hillary was. That'll basically be the attack on her from day 1.

I'd feel most comfortable voting for candidate who are Justice Democrats like AOC (when she's of age that is).
Wat. Corporations HATE Elizabeth Warren. She is the biggest proponent of trust busting in Congress. She also founded the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, which has returned tens of billions of dollars from banks, payday lenders, etc to consumers. She doesn't take corporate PAC money and the majority of her campaign funds come from small dollar donors, unlike pretty much every Senator except Bernie. Gtfoh with this.

She beat a heavy favorite in a congressional primary running a socialist platform and will become the youngest ever woman to serve in congress (28).

Tons of people are understandably excited about her, but in reality she's probably a long way off from doing anything beyond the House.

Yes to all of this.
