I recently came across this Vanity Fair piece on now-Senator, then-candidate Elizabeth Warren. The article paints a woman at home in battle, whose victories (chiefly devising and creating the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau) are the result of an unflagging diligence and a singular willingness to confront the unconfronted. Center stage are her opponents, whose size and power allow them places at the very hearts of the executive and legislative apparatuses. The mind fairly boggles at the amount of time and money they put into the fight, making it all the more incredible that one person has been able to stymie their efforts and raise their hackles to the degree Senator Warren has. Among the more astounding facts from the article:
"When the C.F.P.B. was first proposed to Congress, in early 2009, the Chamber of Commerce, the leading business lobbying group in the country, announced that it would “spend whatever it takes” to defeat the agency. According to the Center for Public Integrity, from 2009 through the beginning of 2010, it would be one of the biggest spenders among the more than 850 businesses and trade groups that together paid lobbyists $1.3 billion to fight financial reform."
