Hallandale Beach Blog -A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida, Europe and Sweden. In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln.

So desperately wanting to belong: Is Elizabeth Warren's desire to finally find a sense of belonging what animated her use of race identity (politics) prior to the Massachusetts Senate race? It may very well be much more personal than you think once you know her back story

Boston Globe video: The Back Story: Dina Rudick speaks with Globe reporter Noah Bierman about his profile on Democratic Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren
FYI: per the mention in the video above, film and TV star James Garner was also from Oklahoma like Warren, and had even attended the same elementary school years prior.

The first in a series of profiles Noah Bierman is doing on Warren is here:
Once you read this, regardless of what you think about her politics, a lot of things will make a lot more sense in trying to figure her out.

Boston Globe
A girl who soared, but longed to belong.
Elizabeth Warren grew up amid the infinite expanse of Oklahoma, the finite expectations of her place and time, and financial pain at home. The lessons of those years still drive her.

The oppressive heat & humidity there is literally everywhere you go. :-(
