Elizabeth Warren has more credentials as a fighter of the working class than any Republican or Democrat, not because of some quaint childhood roots story, but because she is fighting for real reforms in the financial sector. So far she has called out Wall Street for their criminal behavior. As long as she keeps that up, long may she prosper.
I think that is perfectly alright. Change comes from within. And if there is someone within the 1% who is campaigning for the middle class, that implies a change within the 1% as well. Hence, I think Elizabeth Warren can be advocate for the middle class; but it would certainly be better if that advocate is from the middle class itself.
Yes, Elizabeth Warren can be an advocate for the middle class, even though she may be considered part of the one percent. Warren grew up in a working class family who had financial struggles, making her capable of understanding the needs of today's middle class. She is concerned with the needs of the middle class and is capable of being a voice for working Americans.
Senator Elizabeth Warren be an advocate of the middle class in spite of the fact her income puts her in the top 1 percent income bracket in the U.S. The role of an advocate is not dependant on the fact of the person advocating the position, but the value of the position itself.
