Brown, Warren temper rhetoric, stress differences
As Elizabeth Warren steams toward Tuesday, there is a lot less blood and teeth on the floor and a lot more hugs and hearts on the sleeve. Warren has softened her image and rhetoric, becoming a more polished and, some say, conventional Democratic candidate. Scott Brown, a veteran politician with an established identity, has arguably shifted his image and rhetoric less. But he has jeopardized his likeability with pointed attacks on Warren and has shifted his tone to the left.
