The Warren Court?

In light of my earlier diatribe about the Supreme Court, there is a revealing portrait of Elizabeth Warren here at In These Times. The author nicely warns us off of canonizing Warren as too many (blindly) did with Obama. The two adopt approximately the same centrist views on many social issues. But Warren is significantly more progressive on economic matters that our hoper-in-chief. One interesting point is that Warren is a high-powered lawyer who has actually experienced the hardships and demands of "normal" life - in ways that the boys on the right edge of the court have not. Here is a promising nominee to the Court should Obama get another bite at that apple.
