There’s more than 40 miles that separate Baltimore from Washington. In Washington, Elizabeth Warren has undergone some merciless grilling by members of Congress about the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau she is setting up. But in Baltimore, speaking at Rep. Elijah E. Cummings’ town hall meeting tonight, Warren received rock star treatment. In fact, she was called a “rock star” a few times and received two standing ovations in the overcrowded auditorium. Cummings invited Warren to speak about the new bureau and take consumer questions.

Paging Elizabeth Warren: This is your moment.   In 2007, Democrats were delirious with rage about the Iraq war. Hillary Clinton, the "inevitable" presidential front-runner, had voted for the war and refused to apologize for it. Other leading candidates, including Joe Biden, John Edwards and Chris Dodd, voted for it too. This left a huge opening for a credible antiwar candidate. Barack Obama, inexperienced and underqualified, nonetheless jumped into the vacuum. The rest, as they say, is history.

Now there are two. Two smart, tough and articulate women who could be president. Thirty years after Geraldine Ferraro became the first woman on the presidential ticket of a major party, we have two women who could easily lead that ticket in 2016. Hillary Clinton and Elizabeth Warren. It is almost an embarrassment of riches. Ms. Warren, the Democratic senator from Massachusetts who has made a populist name for herself fighting banks and Wall Street, just released the requisite autobiography, "A Fighting Chance.

Eileen Ambrose 's article about Elizabeth Warren ("Consumer advocate feared by financial institutions appears in Baltimore," July 3) faithfully captured the confidence placed in her by average Americans. If we are to avoid a repeat of the recent economic recession caused by criminal fraud perpetrated by Wall Street manipulators and big banks, we need an effective Consumer Financial Protection Bureau headed by Elizabeth Warren. President Obama must draw a line in the sand and not allow dangerous elements in the Congress to derail her appointment.

The headline "Principled or polarizing" on Juan Williams' op-ed (June 14) was a perfect description! Sen. Elizabeth Warren is principled. Sen. Ted Cruz is polarizing. Ms. Warren is trying to accomplish laws to help the average citizen with no desire for publicity. Mr. Cruz is all about tearing apart citizens while grandstanding on every news show he can. This opinion piece of yours showcases the difference of intention between these two senators more than you realize. P.S.: James Carville is sly like a fox. He would love nothing more than for Republicans to promote Senator Cruz as he underlines the negative for the GOP and garners even more voters for Democrats.

On Capitol Hill, some lawmakers treat Elizabeth Warren as if she were Public Enemy No. 1. That's what happens when you're charged with setting up an agency whose purpose is to protect consumers on financial matters — a job that brings you up against supporters of banking interests. But in Baltimore, where the Harvard law professor spoke at a town hall meeting held by Rep. Elijah E. Cummings last week, she received rock-star treatment. In fact, she was called a "rock star" a few times and received two standing ovations from the overflowing crowd at the Enoch Pratt Free Library auditorium.

Gov. Martin O'Malley will have a speaking role at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, NC next month -- another example of his burgeoning leadership role in the Democratic party.  He was one of six speakers announced early this morning by the DNC, and one of four current or former governors on the program. It'll be the second time O'Malley has spoken to the convention. He gave a speech in 2004 that was remembered for its over-the-top rhetoric .

According to letter writer Mark L. Alexander, "millionaires became millionaires because they offered a good or service that other people wanted. They owe society nothing from these transactions. Their sole obligation was to the people with whom they entered into a contract to provide the good or service. " I think the writer ("Rich owe no debt to society," Dec. 7) is sadly mistaken. A quote from Elizabeth Warren says what I would like to say but she says it much better. Ms. Warren writes, "There is nobody in this country who got rich on his own. You built a factory out there - good for you. But I want to be clear.

Consumer advocates aren't getting their first choice to lead the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Despite the setback, this is still a big week for consumer protection. Thursday is the one-year anniversary of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act , the date when some of the law's significant consumer-friendly provisions kick in. Creditors, for instance, will have to begin providing credit scores to certain credit-challenged customers — for free.

Juan Williams' commentary ("Principled or polarizing?" June 14) epitomizes the way the media does a disservice to intelligent discussion of our politics. Evidently, Mr. Williams feels the need to give equal weight to both sides. Comparing Republican Senator Ted Cruz to Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren reflects poorly on the quality of commentary that Mr. Williams is capable of. Senator Warren has been and continues to be a tireless advocate for citizens of this country, trying to protect them against the rapacious appetites of Wall Street and corporate America.

Who is the face of American liberalism? Who is the face of American conservatism? In Washington politics and on social media these days, the king and queen of "base" politics are two freshman U.S senators — Texas' Ted Cruz for conservatives and Massachusetts' Elizabeth Warren for liberals. The fast rise of these two politicians, both less than one year into their respective terms, is directly tied to the nation's harsh liberal-conservative divide. Studies show political polarization in Congress is now the highest since Reconstruction.

A liberal political group is pushing Elizabeth Warren candidacy for the Senate now that President Obama has decided not to name her to lead the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Warren dreamed up the idea of the new agency, but Republicans in Congress vehemently oppose her and the bureau. Progressive Change Campaign Committee has been trying to get signatures and donations for the Harvard law professor's potential race to represent Massachusetts in the U.S. Senate. The “Draft Elizabeth Warren” campaign has so far raised $45,300 and collected 25,548 signatures.
