Warrens pledges

Looking more like she’s about to cry than she did during her campaign…which was constantly how she looked then,,, Senator-elect Elizabeth Warren pledges to fight for the common man when she gets to Washington. She just played the “all the women across American” card, promising, “you better believe we’re going to fight for equal pay and equal rights for all of you”. There’s a line we’re bound to hear played again tomorrow… talking about the records this race set she proclaimed, “and let me be clear…I didn’t build that…YOU built that.”

Brown concedes

At this moment Senator Scott Brown is giving a very upbeat sounding concession speech, energetically thanking his supporters and congratulating Senator Elect Elizabeth Warren. “May she bring that senate office great credit,” says Brown. He reminded people that he has had to wage two campaigns for the same office in the past three years, and spiced up his speech with a punch line, “I now have to break the news to my truck that I now have to take it home.”

He has some goods sound-bites in this speech, “anything is possible, and defeat is only temporary.” He made a point of reaching out to young people to tell them that with hard work, nothing is impossible. Nothing, apparently, but beating Warren.
