Elizabeth Warren is prepared to pick her spots

As a watchdog, she spoke out. But in the Senate, the establishment critic is showing restraint.

Elizabeth Warren is resigning the tenured post at Harvard Law School that took her 30 years to achieve. She has met privately with her former opponent, Scott Brown, who addressed her as professor instead of senator-elect. And she has spoken half a dozen times with majority leader Harry Reid about her new role in the Senate.

But during her first extensive interview since her victory last month, Warren said she had no bills or initiatives ready to propose when she becomes senator next month. Instead, she said, she is studying the ways of the Senate, looking into issues that others have proposed, and seeking out alliances.
