Elizabeth Warren is prepared to pick her spots
As a watchdog, she spoke out. But in the Senate, the establishment critic is showing restraint.
During her first extensive interview since her victory last month, Elizabeth 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. The conciliatory approach may surprise those who expected the self-proclaimed rock-thrower to arrive with a slingshot, and play the role of critic, forever dishing with Jon Stewart and Rachel Maddow.
