Warren, a past Law School Professor at Rutgers and Senator from Massachusetts, brought out a shimmering light of progressivism. In a cast of Spanish-speaking and buzzword-feeding postulants grasping at straws, Warren held her own. The Congresswoman stuck to her campaign promises in a clear and concise tone.
