  Original Published: 11/13/2013 Elizabeth Warren is one of the rising stars in the Democratic Party. She could go head to head with Hillary Clinton if both women decide to seek the democratic presidential nomination for 2016. Erin McPike has the story. With fundraising and speaking engagements from coast-to-coast, Hillary Clinton continues to dominate the 2016 presidential speculation. But there's an unapologetic liberal who could stir things up. "You don't get anything you don't fight for. We can win if we fight." First-term Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Wareen. "I don't want to go to the United States Senate to be there for women some of the time," she said. "I want to go to the United States Senate to be there for women all of the time." She's another fast-rising star who could make history, and might threaten a Clinton Democratic coronation if they both run for the White House three years from now. "Hillary has run once before as the inevitable nominee, another new fresh face came along with an issue and was able to kind of excite passions among the Democratic rank and file, and was able to do it, so I don't think it's crazy," says Noam Schieber, The New Republic Senior Editor. Warren is a former Harvard professor, a progressive populist who burst onto the scene in 2008 when Harry Reid tapped her to oversee the controversial bank bailout. Next, she urged President Obama to create a government entity to protect consumers and their finances. The left wanted her to lead it, but banks and Republicans balked. "It is so good to be here with so many progressive! I love it!" Warren said. Instead, she took on Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown in 2012, and won after a sharp and expensive campaign. In the Senate, she hot right to business, grilling financial regulators, like at this Senate Banking Committee hearing which produced a video that became an Internet sensation earlier this year. "Tell me a little bit about the last few times you've taken the biggest financial institutions on Wall Street all the way to a trial," she said. "Anybody?" There's one snag to this idea even though Warren has shown she's quite willing to speak her mind. A Democratic source tells us North Carolina Senator Kay Hagan said all the Democratic women in the Senate, that includes Warren, have signed a secret letter to Hillary Clinton encouraging her to run. While that might leave progressives looking for another option, Warren has not yet discussed her support Clinton and she has yet to publicly discuss her own intentions for 2016.
