Elizabeth Warren is the senior US Senator from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Previously she has been a Harvard Law School professor specialized in bankruptcy law (after years of work within the US government, as well as in the academic field). She is an active consumer protection advocate whose work led to the conception and establishment of the U.S. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (wiki).

In the late 2000's she started to be increasingly recognized as a very important public policy figure. Here are several marks of this recognition (wiki):

Interestingly, she voted as a Republican for many years saying, I was a Republican because I thought that those were the people who best supported markets. She states that in 1995 she began to vote Democratic because she no longer believed that to be true, but she says that she has voted for both parties because she believed that neither party should dominate (wiki).

Well, that's for the time being. Question is, what will she try in 2016? Will she be the one to break the ceiling? At least my fingers are crossed.
