I wonder if her constituents will decide to do exactly as she is doing.
    Uh huh. So this would have nothing to do with any sort of desire on your part to see her sidetracked from her primary goals?

    The issue shouldn't be only about Senator Elizabeth Warren or only democratic women, nor does Warren speak for all women. One feminist isn't the spokesperson for all women. We shouldn't judged or measured up to Warren. The real issue here should be sexual harassment.

    I see it this way. The next time Senator Warren encourages women to stand up against sexism, even at the risk of alienating their employers and co-workers, her own behavior needs to be remembered. She has a chance to expose it in the Congress, and if it's Republicans, it will affirm the comments she made about Republicans waging war on women. That would not only be sheer political brilliance, it would help Democrats all over the country. The fact that she refuses to 1, stand up to them, and 2, name names only makes me think she's weak, or these are Democrats, or she's making it up.

    Hilarious coming from the right where you guys fully embraced a fruitcake that played the victim card several times a week as a way to campaign as a veep candidate.

    It has everything to do with partisan politics and nothing to do with concern for women being sexually harassed...

    Do you gather from her career to this point that it's about dealing with sexual inequality?

    How's she doing so far? Is everyone equal yet? Or is it, like community organizing, still a work in progress?

    Yes, everything is "hilarious" when the left is called out for their dysfunctional, sometimes despicable behavior. Ha ha, what a joke. Not much of a defense, though.

    She won't name names because the men she refers to are members of her own caucus. If the guilty parties were Lindsay Graham, John McCain and Mitch McConnell, she'd be on the rooftops telling everyone.
    This. If she's going to confirm it happened, then give examples and/or name names. If she's not going to give examples and/or name names, then she should just STFU as she's just as spineless as every other politician.

    So much for being the champion and shining example for the little person, eh?
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.
