I've donated to Elizabeth Warren

I was a little hesitant at first, because after all there were other Democratic candidates in Massachusetts hoping to become the party choice, and I really didn't know anything about them.  And despite national name recognition and her specific pledge to support the people against the Wall Street corporatocracy, Elizabeth Warren is not necessarily the most progressive Democrat in US politics, let alone an actual leftist like me.  Would Obama be a pal with Dennis Kucinich?  OK, so Obama didn't exactly stick out his neck for Warren either when he could have given her a recess appointment to the new consumer financial products protection board she had promoted.  But as of December 11, all other Democrats had dropped out of the race for Senate race for Massachusetts.  So then now is the time to contribute to Elizabeth Warren to retake the historic seat of Ted Kennedy with a progressive Democrat.  The sooner the better.  I've chipped in with $100.
