Some really good news:
Elizabeth Warren has taken a surprising lead in the Senate race in Massachusetts.
In the first poll since launching her candidacy a few days ago, the Harvard law professor and consumer advocate, leads Republican Scott Brown 46 to 44, according to Public Policy Polling.
Warren, who should have been the permanent head of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau had it not been for the scandalous behavior of the Republicans in the Senate, surprised everyone by her strong showing.
Although November is far off, and she must first beat the other four Democratic hopefuls who all are beaten by Brown in the same poll, Warren now looks to have a real chance to take the nomination and then recapture that old Ted Kennedy seat for the Democrats.
Indeed, som really good news!
