Elizabeth Warren Whacks Wall Street & Scott Brown In Debate (Video)

“The people on Wall Street broke this country, and they did it one lousy mortgage at a time. It happened more than three years ago, and there has been no real accountability, and there has been no real effort to fix it."

Elizabeth Warren officially kicked off her much-anticipated foray into the political arena by whacking U.S. Sen. Scott Brown on the economy and trumpeting her record of going “toe-to-toe” with financial behemoths, as she did battle with five Democrats in this first 2012 Senate debate.

“Forbes magazine named Scott Brown Wall Street’s favorite senator. I was thinking that’s probably not an award I’m going to get,” Warren said, storming out of the gate in her first public debate, which was streamed live on .

The Harvard professor was polished, avoided any missteps and displayed flashes of wit. When a student pointed out that Brown posed bare-chested for Cosmopolitan magazine to pay for college and asked how she paid for college, Warren replied: “I kept my clothes on.”
