Massachusetts Senate candidate and progressive hero Elizabeth Warren delivered a primetime speech at the Democratic National Convention on Wednesday night, describing President Obama as a populist up against a Republican nominee who has sided with corporations. "No, Governor Romney, corporations are not people," Warren said, referencing a much-repeated Romney soundbite from 2011. "People have hearts, they have kids, they get jobs, they get sick, they cry, they dance. They live, they love, and they die. And that matters." She continued: "Mitt Romney wants to give billions in breaks to big corporations — but he and Paul Ryan would pulverize financial reform, voucher-ize Medicare, and vaporize ObamaCare." Warren's race against Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.) is seen by Democrats as a must-win if the Left wants to keep its majority in the Senate.
