Elizabeth Warren PACs A Low-Profile Punch

In keeping with her Marcel Marceau press conference last month, Sen.-elect Elizabeth Warren (D-I’m Not There) has relentlessly avoided the spotlight in advance of taking her U.S. Senate seat.

From Thursday’s Wall Street Journal:

When she is sworn in this January, Elizabeth Warren might be expected to follow a fairly well-established model for making the switch from national figure to freshman senator: Keep your head down and stay out of the limelight.

So far the Massachusetts Democrat has declined most interview requests, and she kept her answers brief at a postelection news conference. The question is whether she will stick to the script.

Early on, there are indications she might not:

In a sign Ms. Warren isn’t wasting time becoming a political player, she has already formed a political-action committee, called PAC for a Level Playing Field. It hasn’t yet reported any contributions, according to Federal Election Commission filings.

Indeed, PAC for a Level Playing Field has plenty of press but no real presence yet.

Just like Warren, yeah?

    I suspect that part of the issue for Warren is the number of enemies that she made during her last tenure in Washington. She was not the most popular of political appointees.
