Elizabeth Warren is facing the peculiar experience of being Mr. Smith in Washington. I am a big fan of her position and message, and have come to notice that (not surprisingly) the posture of her interviewer makes a great difference in how well she comes off.
Bill Maher pitched a bunch of softballs, and Warren comes out like a champ (but before you conclude she is getting soft treatment, consider how Fox News treats its own). Contrast how she comes of less well here, on Charlie Rose, even though she had the appearance of having greater control of the interview.
