Warren for Senate

By EDITORIAL  |  November 5, 2012

But it would be a mistake to view Warren as a narrowcast candidate.

Warren understands that Washington has become so favorable to big business that workers of all stripes have been shortchanged. She recognizes the need to get America working again, with infrastructure programs that will help repair our economic foundations so that the nation can then retool for the future.

And Warren has the common sense to realize that it is time to put an end to military adventures abroad. Warren's three brothers all served in the military. Her family experience has taught her something that neoconservative Republican theorists cannot seem to grasp: that it's time to worry about the folks at home. This is not to say that foreign enemies do not exist — but in Warren's view, the despair and economic ruin of recent years is the primary challenge to which America must respond.

There are two key reasons why you should vote for Warren: her values and her vision. Warren will best balance what is right for Massachusetts with what is needed for America.

NOTE: A previous version of this story unintentionally stated that Biden, not Brown, "voted with his Republican masters 76 percent of the time"; this has been corrected.
