"The function of intellect is insufficient without empathy"

"Nothing is so hard for those who abound in riches as to conceive how others can be in want." ~Jonathan Swift

If I lived in Massachusetts, I'd vote for Elizabeth Warren in a heartbeat.

Know why?

Unlike the current crop of Republicans/conservatives, she still possesses empathy.

Even when someone calls her a "socialist whore."

“I actually felt sorry for the guy. I really genuinely did,” Warren later told the Huffington Post. “He’s been out of work now for a year and a half. And bless his heart, I mean, he thought somehow it would help to come here and yell names.”

She also added: “I’m not angry with him, but he didn’t come up with the idea that his biggest problem was Occupy Wall Street. There’s someone else pre-packaging that poison — and that’s who makes me angry.”

Smart? Well-spoken? Knows what she's talking about? You betcha.

I hope she wipes the floor with Scott Brown.
