Elizabeth Warren is a wonder woman in so many ways.  A Harvard professor, lawyer, consumer advocate, former chair of the Congressional Oversight Panel and a vital advisor in the implementation for the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, she’s currently running for the U.S. Senate in Massachusetts.  Last night was her first primary debate where she squared off against Bob Massie, an entrepreneur and one-time candidate for lieutenant governor; Alan Khazei, co-founder of the City Year youth program; Tom Conroy, a state legislator; Marisa DeFranco, an immigration lawyer; and Herb Robinson, an engineer.

With so many important topics like the national debt and budget, wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and the numerous other ills affecting us, a hot topic had to be asked, “If you could be a superhero, who would you be?”  Warren’s answer?  Wonder Woman.

Such a cool outfit, and the bracelets — they were the whole thing for me.

The winner of the primary gets to take on current Senator Scott Brown in 2012.  You can read more about the debate here or catch some of her answer in the video below at the 1:29 mark.
