Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) called on Democrats in the House to use their leverage and reject a bipartisan spending bill to keep the government open until a measure tucked inside rolling back a piece of the Dodd-Frank financial reform law is removed. “Who does Congress work for?” Warren said in a speech on the Senate floor Wednesday...

Thomas Dagg was obsessed with Star Wars a kid growing up in Ottawa during the 1990s. He watched the trilogy on VHS so many times he wore out the tapes. When his parent’s promised him a Star Wars toy as a reward, he let the dentist pull two teeth without any complaints.

Question for you guys:

I'm not as down on Hillary as some of you (and sincerely do not believe you have to think she is a fool or a crook to be for Liz). That said I do find Hillary too much of a hawk for my taste. What do we know about Warren's foreign policy positions? I know I can look it up but wanted opinions, too.

I Like Rand Paul, Amy, but I'd take divided government over any of the warmongers in a united government. I'm a peacenik.
