Blocking Warren from consumer agency post was fateful

I wonder if Senator Scott Brown called Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and other Republican leaders the day after the election, and asked them why they opposed the appointment of Elizabeth Warren to be the head of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. If she had been appointed to that position, then Brown might still be a senator in the next Congress.

It just seems that the Republicans did a good job of putting Warren in exactly the position that they did not want.
