My second favorite Senator (after Elizabeth Warren) might be Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) for two important reasons. The first, is that he has shown a blueprint for a truly economically populist progressive to win in a purple state and even run ahead of Obama; throwing fresh cold water on DLC style Rubinomics winning the day. The second, is that he has consistently advocated great progressive policies that actually attract bipartisan support. His latest is an effort to break up the banks and it actually has a very conservative co-sponsor in the form of Sen. David Vitter (R-LA and DC bordellos).
Sen. Warren strikes me as a natural supporter of this legislation, and I ask her to back it and put her more extensive political celebrity to use publicizing and advocating for it. I also ask any of our Senate candidates in either party to support this. The more grassroots support this gets, the harder it will be to ignore.
