Women in politics continue to face sexist double standards, and Senator Elizabeth Warren discusses "A Fighting Chance" and the need for political reform. 

[ CHEERING ]>> WELCOME TO THE DAILY SHOW.

I'M JON STEWART.

NICE.

TONIGHT WE GOT OUR SELVES AHUMDINGER ON THE PROGRAM.

A SENATOR FROM THEGREAT STATE OF MASSACHUSETTS,

ELIZABETH WARREN, IS GOINGTO BE JOINING US.

BUT WE BEGIN TONIGHT RIGHTAWAY WITH BREAKING NEWS FROM

THE INSIDE OF ANOTHERHUMAN BEING.

>> MARK AND I VERY EXCITED THATWE HAVE OUR FIRST CHILD ARRIVING

LATER THIS YEAR.

>> OH MY GOD, THEY'VEGOT A CHILD ARRIVING,

HOW DID THEY PULL THAT OFF?REALLY, THAT'S HOW IT HAPPENS?

I MEAN, IF THAT'S HOW ITHAPPENS,

I SHOULD HAVE SIX KIDS! OHREALLY, NOT EVERY TIME?

OH, OKAY.

[ Laughter ]>> HERE'S THE ODD THING

ABOUT THE ANNOUNCEMENT:DARRELL ISSA HAS ALREADY

SUBPOENAED THE BABY TO TESTIFYABOUT BENGHAZI.

TELL US WHAT YOU KNOW, BABY.

[ Laughter ]>> BUT CONGRATULATIONS TO THE

CLINTON FAMILY.

NEWS MEDIA?

SET THE 2016 PRESIDENTIALSPECULATRON TO BABY.

>> EVERYBODY IS WONDERING WHATIMPACT IT MIGHT HAVE ON HILARY

CLINTON'S DECISION TO RUN FORPRESIDENT IN 2016

DOES THE FACT THAT SHE'S GOINGTO BECOME A GRANDMOTHER ON TOP

OF OTHER CONSIDERATIONS FACTORIN?

>> COULD IT PUT A BUMP INHILLARY'S 2016 PLANS?

AND IS IT SEXIST TO ASK?

>> NO SILLY BILLY, OF COURSEIT'S NOT SEXIST.

EVEN THOUGH IT IS A QUESTIONTHAT HAS NEVER EVER BEEN POSED

TO A MALE CANDIDATE EVER.

FOR GOD SAKES, MITT ROMNEY HASLIKE A LITTER OF GRANDCHILDREN.

MITT ROMNEY HAS FOR GOD SAKES,IF I'M NOT MISTAKEN, MITT ROMNEY

HAS LIKE A GRANDCHILD PETTINGZOO!

[ Laughter ]>> THE GUY ADDED THREE

GRANDCHILDREN WHILE HE WASCAMPAIGNING!

HE IS THE ONLY CANDIDATE INHISTORY WHOSE ELECTORAL COLLEGE

TOTAL IS LESS THAN THENUMBER OF CHAIRS HE HAS TO

PUT OUT AT THANKSGIVING. MYPOINT IS HE GOT CRUSHED IN THE

ELECTION BY SOMEONE WITH NOGRANDCHILDREN. YET SOMEHOW

THE GRANDCHILDREN FACTOR NEVERCAME UP IN THE RACE BETWEEN

OBAMA AND ROMNEY. FOR GOD'SSAKE, WHEN WILLIAM HOWARD TAFT

WAS RUNNING IN 1908,HE WAS ACTUALLY PREGNANT.

HE WAS PREGNANT. NO ONE SAIDANYTHING.

IT'S AS THOUGH MEN AND WOMEN ARETREATED DIFFERENTLY.

LIKE THEY'RE FROM TWO DIFFERENTPLANETS. LET'S CALL ONE OF THOSE

PLANETS MARS, AND THEOTHER PLANET, LET'S CALL IT UH,

BLIGORP 7. FOR INSTANCE,SENATOR DIANNE FEINSTEIN,

22 YEAR SENATE VETERAN FROM THEGREAT STATE OF BLIGORP 7.

FEINSTEIN CHAIRS THESENATE INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE

WHICH RECENTLY COMPLETED A NEWREPORT ABOUT THE CIA'S BUSH

ERA'S TORTURE PROGRAM. THECOMMITTEE WOULD LIKE TO RELEASE

THEIR FINDINGS THAT THE CIA'SPROGRAMS WERE FAR MORE

BRUTAL AND WIDESPREAD THAN HADBEEN REPORTED THAT THE CIA HAD

BRUTAL AND WIDESPREAD THAN HADBEEN REPORTED THAT THE CIA HAD

OVERSTATED TORTURE'SEFFECTIVENESS.

OR TO PUT THAT ANOTHER WAY.

>> FORMER CIA DIRECTOR MICHAELHAYDEN CHARACTERIZED

SENATOR DIANE FEINSTEIN'SMOTIVATION FOR RELEASING

THE REPORT AS EMOTIONAL.

>>THAT MOTIVATION FOR THEREPORT, CHRIS, MAY SHOW DEEP

EMOTIONAL FEELING ON THE PARTOF THE SENATOR BUT I DON'T THINK

IT LEADS YOU TO AN OBJECTIVEREPORT.

>> Jon: SENATOR JUST NEEDS HERBEAUTY SLEEP.

THAT'S ALL SHE NEEDS.

[ Laughter ]>> SO THE WAY THE FORMER HEAD OF

THE CIA IS DEFENDING THATAGENCY'S USE OF TORTURE IS TO

ARGUE THAT THE INFORMATION INTHE SENATOR'S REPORT IT

UNRELIABLE BECAUSE IT WASIMPARTED UNDER EMOTIONAL

DISTRESS.

WELL -- I TELL YOU, THAT GUY ISGOING TO BE SAD TOMORROW TO SEE

THAT ZINGER IN HIS INBOX.

YOU KNOW, IT IS A THEME WE SEEAGAIN AND AGAIN.

YOU KNOW?

WHEN ALLIES OF CHRIS CHRISTIERELEASED A REPORT EXONERATING

CHRISTIE IN THE BRIDGEGATESCANDAL,

HIS FORMER AIDE BRIDGET ANNEKELLY PROVOKED SIMILAR CONCERNS.

>> SHE SEEMED EMOTIONAL. SHE WASHABITUALLY CONCERNED ABOUT HOW

SHE WAS PERCEIVED BY THEGOVERNOR. A BOYFRIEND HAD ENDED

A RELATIONSHIP. THAT'S INREFERENCE TO ONE OF THE

CHRISTIE OFFICIALS SHE WASWITH, THE REPORT COMMISSIONED BY

MR. CHRISTIE AND RELEASEDTHURSDAY DOUBLES DOWN ON A

STRATEGY OF PORTRAYING MS.KELLY AS DUPLICITOUS, WEEPING

FREQUENTLY AND DEPENDENT ON MENFOR APPROVAL AND STABILITY.

>> NO?

BUT THE REPORT ALSO CONCLUDEDTHAT KELLY, QUOTE, WOULD LOOK

MUCH PRETTIER IF SHE SMILED. ANDCONCLUDED THAT THE COMMISSION

HATED TO SEE HER RESIGN BUTLOVED TO WATCH HER GO.

OVER AND OVER AGAIN THERE SEEMSTO BE A CONCERN FOR

EMOTIONALITY, WHEN IT COMESTO WOMEN IN POLITICS. LIKE

WHEN HILLARY CLINTON COMING OFFAN UPSET LOSS IN IOWA LET HER

GUARD DOWN AT A NEW HAMPSHIRECAMPAIGN EVENT.

>> HILLARY CLINTON GETTING ALLMISTY EYES WHEN TALKING TO

VOTERS EARLIER TODAY.

>> IT WAS AS CLOSE TO ABREAKDOWN AS I'VE EVER SEEN

HILLARY HAVE. I MEAN, SHE ISJUST LETTING HER EMOTIONS

FALL OUT OF HER.>> CAN'T HELP IT.

>> CAN'T HELP IT. BEWILDERED,FRUSTRATED.

>> WE CAN'T HAVE PEOPLE WHOBREAK DOWN AND START CRYING AT

THE MOST DIFFICULT MOMENTS.

>> OF COURSE WE CAN'T HAVE THAT.AND THAT CANDIDATE PUDDLE THAT

WAS HILLARY CLINTON ISN'T FIT TOSERVE WITH OUR STRONGER MORE

STABLE MALE POLITICIANS.

YOU KNOW HOW THE LADIES ARE WITHTHE -- (LAUGHING).

>> WHEN I THINK OF WHAT KYLE HASMEANT TO ME OVER THE PAST 15

YEARS.

>> IT'S MY SON. GOD ALMIGHTY!

>> MAKING SURE THAT THESE KIDSHAVE A SHOT AT THE AMERICAN

DREAM.

MY GOD, IT'S IMPORTANT.

[ Laughter ]>> STOP IT, STOP IT, THAT MAN IS

NOT CRYING.

HE'S A MALE.

HE'S NOT CRYING.

HE'S WEARING HIS FAVORITE ONIONSHIRT.

THAT'S AN ONION SHIRT. IT'SDIFFERENT. AND BESIDES, IT'S NOT

JUST WOMEN CRYING, IT'S THE MOODSWINGS. THE OTHER STUFF.

>> HILLARY SEEMS TO HAVE A WHOLELOT OF ANGER.

>> WHY IS SHE SO DARN ANGRY?

>> YEAH, WHAT IS (BLEEP) WRONGWITH HER?

CALM THE (bleep) DOWN LADY?CAUSE THAT'S THE THING, IF YOU

WANT TO BE IN POLITICS,

YOU'VE GOT TO LEARN HOW TOCONTROL YOUR TEMPER.

>> IF YOU CONDUCT YOURSELFLIKE THAT IN THE COURTROOM YOUR

REAR END IS GOING TO GET THROWNIN JAIL, IDIOT.

DID I SAY ON TOPIC? ARE YOUSTUPID?

>> DAMN MAN I'M GOVERNOR, CANYOU JUST SHUT UP FOR A SECOND?

>> THANK YOU, EXACTLY.

THAT'S HOW YOU HANDLE GOVERNMENTBUSINESS.

CALM, COOL, COLLECTED.

BUT THE LADIES, ONE MINUTE, YAHYAH YAH YAH AND THEN THE NEXT

MINUTE THEY'RE GIVING YOU THESILENT TREATMENT.

>> MR. CHAIRMAN, I HAVE APROCEDURAL QUESTION.

MR. CHAIRMAN, I HAVE A PROCEDUREQUESTION.

MR. CHAIRMAN, YOU CANNOT RUN ACOMMITTEE LIKE THIS.

>> REPUBLICAN ACCUSATION INTHIS INVESTIGATION --

>> WE'RE ADJOURNED.

CLOSE IT DOWN.

THANK YOU.

>> DON'T THANK US, THANK YOU FORSHOWING US ALL HOW CONFLICT

RESOLUTION IS HANDLED MATURELYBY MALES.

NOT LIKE THOSE CATFIGHTING BROADS. MEOW.

>> I CALL IT GARBAGE, DR. RICE.IT COMES FROM THE MOUTH.

>> IT'S DR. BRINKLEY. RICE IS AUNIVERSTIY.

>> NO, YOU JUST BEQUIET. YOU BE QUIET.

>> YOU DON'T OWN ME.

I PAY YOUR SALARY.

>> Jon: OKAY, THAT'S WHAT I'MTALKING ABOUT!

[APPLAUSE]YOU KNOW,

>> THE BEST PART OF THE ENTIREBIT IS THE WOMAN SITTING BEHIND

REPRESENTATIVE YOUNG WHO SITS UPIN STUNNED DISBELIEVING

ADMIRATION.

THAT IS JUST PURE ADMIRATION.

AT THE HIGH LEVEL OF MALEDISCOURSE IN THE PEOPLE'S HOUSE.

I'M SURPRISED SHE WAS ABLE TOKEEP QUIET.

AS EXCITABLE AS THE LADIES GETSOMETIMES.

(LAUGHING).

>> YOU KNOW THE LADIES WITH THESCREAMING.

AT LEAST THAT LADY HAD TIMETO PUT HERSELF TOGETHER, PUT HER

FACE ON BECAUSE YOU KNOW HOWVAIN THE LADIES CAN BE, YOU

KNOW HOW THE LADIES ARE ALWAYSTHINKING ABOUT WHAT THEY LOOKLIKE.

NOW RIGHT ABOUT NOW, YOU MAY BETHINKING TO YOURSELF, BUT

JON IN YOUR ZEAL TO MAKE A CASETHAT WOMEN ARE TOO EMOTIONAL

AND UNPREDICTABLE TOHOLD PUBLIC OFFICE, YOU SEEM

ALMOST MADE AN OPPOSITECASE. SHOWCASING, HIGHLIGHTING,

INSTANCES WHERE RESPECTED MALESOFFICIALS APPEAR TO BE NOT

IN TOTAL CONTROL OF THEIREMOTIONAL, LET'S CALL IT

SELVES -- MY FRIEND I SEE THECRITICAL MISTAKE YOU HAVE MADE

IN YOUR THINKING.

FOR ALL THOSE EXAMPLES OF MALEEMOTION ARE IN FACT NOT NEGATIVE

BUT POSITIVE.

>> TAKES A LOT MORE COURAGE FORA POLITICIAN TO CRY ON

TELEVISION. THAN ITDOES TO BE TOUGH.

>> LOOK AT THE PASSION BEHINDTHIS GUY.

>> CONGRESSMAN WE LOVE IT WHENYOU GET FIBERY LIKE THAT.

>> STRAIGHT SHOOTER. HE'S TOUGH.HE'LL TAKE ON HECKLERS.

>> YOU SEE AN HONEST OPENGOVERNOR THAT DOES SHOW EMOTION.

>> HE WAS FORCEFUL. HE WAS VERYAGGRESSIVE.

>> HE WAS AGGRESSIVE, HE WASPRESIDENTIAL.

>> THAT'S A MAN'SMAN. WHO GETS CHOKED UP ABOUT

ABOUT HIS COUNTRY AND ABOUT THETHINGS HE FEELS PASSIONATE

ABOUT. ALL OF A SUDDEN FEELINGPASSION FOR AMERICA AND THE

HOPES FOR HIS FELLOWAMERICANS IS SOMETHING EVIL?

>> SO THAT'S REALLY THELESSON WE HAVE LEARNED TODAY. IN

POLITICS IT'S OKAY TO BE A PUSSYAS LONG AS YOU'VE GOT A DICK.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

[CHEERING AND APPLAUSE]>> WELCOME BACK. MY GUEST

TONIGHT, A UNITED STATES SENATORREPRESENTING THE GREAT STATE OF

MASSACHUSETTS. HERNEW BOOK IS CALLED A FIGHTING

BOSTON IS IN FACT STRONG.

BEFORE WE GET STARTED OBVIOUSLYYOU'RE A LADY SENATOR SO I'M

JUST GOING TO PUT THIS OUT HERE.

[ Laughter ]>> ALL RIGHT.

THERE'S THAT ANGER WE'VE HEARDABOUT.

DO YOU FEEL THAT IN WASHINGTON?

DO YOU FEEL THAT WOMEN ARETREATED DIFFERENTLY, EITHER BY

THE MEDIA OR BY YOUR COLLEAGUESBECAUSE THE SENSE WE GET FROM

WATCHING THESE SHOWS, FORINSTANCE CHELSEA CLINTON'S

GRANDCHILD BEING A FACTORIN HILLARY CLINTON'S

CAREER, OR THOSE TYPES OFTHINGS.

>> YES.>> THAT DOES EXIST?

>> YEP.

>> BECAUSE WE SEEM TO HAVE THETAPES THAT PROVE IT DOES EXIST.

>> UH-HUH.

>> DO YOU ACTIVELY BATTLE ITOR IGNORE IT?

>> THAT IS, WHEN YOU IGNORE IT,YOU ARE ACTIVELY BATTLING IT.

I MEAN, THAT'S WHAT YOU'REREALLY TRYING TO DO. YOU TRY

TO GET TO THE THINGS THATREALLY MATTER.

TO GET TO THE ISSUES THAT MATTERTO YOU, TO MAKE SURE THAT YOUR

VOICE GETS HEARD ON BEHALF OFTHE PEOPLE WHO SENT YOU TO

WASHINGTON TO WORK FOR THEM.

SO YEAH, IT'S A FIGHT BUT IT'STHE RIGHT FIGHT AND YOU JUST GOT

TO HAVE IT.

>> WHEN YOU CAME HERE THE FIRSTTIME YOU WERE A PROFESSOR, YOU

WERE AN ACTIVIST.

THE SECOND TIMED YOU CAME HEREYOU WERE A CANDIDATE FOR

SENATOR, THE THIRD TIME YOU WEREA SENATOR.

I GUESS IN THOSE THREEITERATIONS WHO HAS THE NICEST

BATHROOMS, HARVARDOR THE SENATE?

>> UH YOU KNOW, ACTUALLY THIS ISA COOL STORY ABOUT THE SENATE.

THERE HAVEN'T BEEN MANY WOMENSENATORS.

SO FOR THIS YEAR THE FIRST TIMEWE NOW HAVE 20 WOMEN IN THE

UNITED STATES SENATE!

[CHEERING AND APPLAUSE]>> NICE.

>> ALTHOUGH I WOULD LIKE TO SAYWE CAN HOLD THAT APPLAUSE FOR

WHEN WE CAN SAY, WE HAVE ATLEAST 50 WOMEN IN THE UNITED

STATES SENATE. THAT'S WHEN WE'REREALLY GOING TO DO IT.

[CHEERING AND APPLAUSE]>> BUT THERE WAS JUST ONE

TINY LITTLE WOMEN'S BATHROOM.

SO YOU HAD TO KIND OF --

>> ARE YOU SERIOUS?

>> I'M DEAD SERIOUS. AND YOUKIND OF HAD TO SCOOCH SIDEWAYS

AND SEE WHO WAS IN THERE.

I NEVER SAW THE MEN'S ROOM BUTTHEY SEEMED TO BE COMING IN AND

OUT OKAY.

SO ACTUALLY THEY HAD TOMAKE A CHANGE.

THE UNITED STATES SENATE ISCHANGING.

WE NOW HAVE A BIGGER LADIESROOM.

>> CONGRATULATIONS!

[APPLAUSE]>> I CAN JUST IMAGINE THAT

COMING TO THE FLOOR AND THEREPUBLICANS FILIBUSTERING UNTIL

THEY HAD TO USE IT.

[ Laughter ]>> THAT'S RIGHT.

>> WHAT WHERE YOU HAVE FOUND THEDIFFERENCE, SO LOOK, BEING IN

THE SENATE VERSUSFIGHTING FROM THE OUTSIDE,

WHAT IS IT LIKE TOFIGHT FROM WITHIN AN

INSTITUTION THAT TO MANYOBSERVERS IS CORRUPTED BY

MONEY, IDEOLOGY AND THE OTHERTYPES OF DOGMA THAT SLOW

THINGS DOWN. HAVE YOU FOUND THATA FRUSTRATION?

>> SO LOOK, THE PROBLEM WE HAVEIN THIS COUNTRY AND

WE'VE HAD FOR A LONG TIME NOW ISWASHINGTON

WORKS FOR THOSE WHO CAN HIREARMIES OF LOBBYISTS AND LAWYERS.

IF YOU ARE A HUGE CORPORATION IFYOU ARE A BILLIONAIRE, BOY YOUR

VOICE GETS HEARD IN THAT PLACE.

AND WHAT YOU WANT GETS ATTENDEDTO.

FOR ORDINARY FAMILIES IT JUSTDOESN'T WORK SO WELL.

SO IT'S REALLY THE SAME KIND OFFIGHT.

I FEEL LIKE I'VE BEEN INVOLVEDIN EXACTLY THE SAME KIND OF

FIGHT FROM THE BEGINNING.

I GIVE YOU AN EXAMPLE OFTHAT. RIGHT NOW, WHERE WE ARE.

KIDS WHO CAN'T AFFORD TO GO TOCOLLEGE, THEIR PARENTS CAN'T

AFFORD TO WRITE THEM A CHECK SOTHEY HAVE TO BORROW MONEY.

THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENTSAYS WE WILL LEND YOU THE MONEY

TO GO TO SCHOOL.

OK, THAT'S A GOOD THING TO DO.

AND THEN PILES ONTO THE INTERESTRATES SO THAT THE GOVERNMENT

MAKES TENS OF BILLIONSOF DOLLARS IN PROFIT

OFF THE BACKS OF KIDS TRYINT TOGET AN EDUCATION.

I THINK IT'S OBSCENE FOR THEGOVERNMENT TO MAKE PROFITS.

[APPLAUSE]>> Jon: SO, HOW IS THAT LEGAL?

YOU KNOW, BUT THAT DOESN'TSTRIKE ME. SO WHO IS LOBBYING

THE GOVERNMENT TO GET, THATISN'T EVEN A CORPORATE

INTEREST, THAT IS AGOVERNMENT INHERENT INTERNALCORRUPTION IS IT NOT?

>> THAT'S EXACTLY THE POINT. SOTO SAY, WHICH I WANT TO DO AND I

THINK WE'RE GOING TO PROPOSENEXT MONTH, REFINANCING THOSE

STUDENT LOANS THAT AREOUTSTANDING, TO BRING DOWN THE

INTEREST RATE, CUT THE INTERESTRATE ON THOSE STUDENT

LOANS. IN ORDER TO BE ABLE TO DO

THAT WE HAVE TO FINDSOME PLACE ELSE IN THE

BUDGET TO FIND THAT MONEY. MYVIEW IS WE OUGHT TO CLOSE

A COUPLE OF THOSELOOPHOLES, MAKE BILLIONAIRES

PAY JUST AS MUCH IN TAXES ASTHEIR SECRETARIES DO.

BUT THE LOBBYISTS WON'T LET THATHAPPEN.

>> SURE, SURE. BUT HERE'S WHAT'SFRUSTRATING. I GET THAT.

SO THE FED, THE FED HAS AN OPENWINDOW, A DISCOUNT WINDOW WHERE

THESE BANKS CAN COME IN ANDBORROW AT ZERO PERCENT INTEREST,

THEY CAN GRAB MILLIONS ANDMILLIONS OF DOLLARS AND TURN IT

AROUND AND TURN IT INTOTREASURIES OR WHATEVER IT IS AND

MAKE 3 OR 4% AND TURN IT AROUNDAND SO YOU'RE TELLING ME KIDS

THAT DON'T HAVE ENOUGH MONEY TOGO TO COLLEGE HAVE TO PAY

INTEREST ON LOANS BUT THESEBANKS WITH BILLIONS OF DOLLARS

CAN COME IN AND BORROW AT ZEROINTEREST AND USE IT AS A MONEY

PRINTING MACHINE --

>> AND THAT'S HOW THE GAME ISRIGGED.

ALL RIGHT, WHEN WE COME BACKWE'LL TALK MORE ABOUT HOW THE

REAL WORLD OF POLITICS INTERACTSWITH THE IDEALS OF POLITICS.

>> MORE WITH SENATOR WARREN WHENWE COME BACK.

>> ALL RIGHT, SO WE'RE BACK,WE'RE TALKING WITH SENATOR

ELIZABETH WARREN.

HERE IS WHERE I THINK IT GETSINTERESTING.

SO THE IDEAL IS FAIRNESS.IDEOLOGICALLY, AT LEAST

PRINCIPLED CONSISTENCY, BUT YOUALSO HAVE CONSTITUENT

PRESSURE THAT CAN'T BE IGNORED.YOU KNOW, THAT'S THE BATTLE

YOU'RE FIGHTING, SO

LET'S SAY IT'S THE MEDICALDEVICE TAX FOR OBAMACARE.

THEY HAVE THIS IN PLACE, IT'S A2 TO 3% TAX ON MEDICAL DEVICES

TO HELP PAY FOR OBAMACARE.

NOW, YOU ARE FROM MASSACHUSETTS.

>> I AM.

>> THEY ARE THE SECOND LARGESTSELLER OF THESE MEDICAL DEVICES.

>> UH-HUH.

>> SO YOU VOTED AGAINST TAKINGTHAT TAX OUT.

THAT SEEMS ANTITHETICAL TO WHATI WOULD THINK YOU WOULD STAND

FOR, BUT YOU ALSO HAVE THATCONSTITUENCY.

>> SO LOOK, THE QUESTION ON THEMEDICAL DEVICE TAX FOR ME,

I ACTUALLY DON'T THINK IT'S AGOOD IDEA TO TAX MANUFACTURING

EXTRA OF ANY KIND BECAUSE ITHINK WHAT WE NEED TO DO IS

PRODUCE MORE MANUFACTURING JOBSIN THIS

COUNTRY. BUT IFWE'RE GOING TO TAKE THAT

OUT WE'VE GOT TO FIND ANOTHERPLACE TO PAY

FOR IT, THAT'S HOW IT WORKS TOKEEP THE BUDGET GOING.

YOU'VE HIT ON A KEY PART ABOUTHOW WASHINGTON WORKS RIGHT NOW,

WHEN WASHINGTON ACTUALLYWORKS AND WHEN IT DOESN'T.

I WANT TO GO BACK TO THE POINTIF WE CAN FOR JUST A SECOND

ABOUT COLLEGE BECAUSE IT SHOWSTHIS SO WELL.

>> YEAH YEAH YEAH.

>> BUT WE CAN DO IT AROUND ANYPART OF THIS.

WHEN I GREW UP MY MOM WORKED AMINIMUM WAGE JOB AT SEARS.

MY DAD SOLD CARPETS ENDED UP ASA MAINTENANCE MAN.

>> RIGHT.

>> I MADE IT TO THE UNITEDSTATES SENATE AND A BIG PART OF

THE REASON FOR THAT IS THAT IWENT TO A COMMUTER COLLEGE THAT

COST $50 A SEMESTER.

AND I WENT TO A COLLEGE THATCOST $50 A SEMESTER AND GOT A

GOOD EDUCATION BECAUSE I GREW UPIN AN AMERICA THAT SAID OUR JOB

IS TO INVEST IN OUR KIDS.

AND TO HELP THEM BUILD A FUTURE.

AND THAT'S WHAT'S FUNDAMENTALLYCHANGED.

IT'S TOUGH OUT THERE, IT REALLYIS A RIGGED GAME.

AND IT'S SET UP NOW OVER ANDOVER AND OVER AGAIN.

>> AND IT'S PROBABLY ALWAYSBEEN.

>> WELL, NOT LIKE THIS.

>> RIGHT.

>> IT'S SET UP OVER AND OVER ANDOVER THAT THE RICH GET RICHER

AND THE POWERFUL MOREPOWERFUL. THEY'VE GOT ALL THE

ADVANTAGES OF CONCENTRATED MONEYAND CONCENTRATED POWER.

ALL WE GOT ON THE OTHER SIDE ISWE'VE GOT OUR VOICES AROUND WE

GET OUR VOTES.

IF WE GET OUT THERE AROUND MAKESOMETHING OUT OF THEM.

[APPLAUSE]>> I TELL YOU, GOOD ON YOU

FOR BELIEVING IT AND GETTINGINTO THE FIGHT AND DOING WHAT

YOU CAN WITHIN THAT AND DEALINGWITH OBVIOUSLY ALL THE

DIFFERENT COMPLICATIONS THATOCCUR WITH IT.

A FIGHTING CHANCE -- DID YOU DOTHE AUDIO BOOK?

>> I DID IT ALL.

IT'S ME.

>> REALLY YOU DID THE READING?

>> I DID. I WROTE THAT BOOK ANDI READ THE AUDIO.

>> WOULDN'T IT HAVE BEEN GOOD TOHAVE WILLFORD BRIMLEY IN THERE?

A LITTLE WILLFORD BRIMLEY INTHERE?

>> A LITTLE BIT WOULD HAVE BEENNICE.

>> YOU KNOW A FIGHTING CHANCE ISALL YOU NEED.

>> I'M GOING TO GET IN ANDLISTEN TO IT IN MY CAR THAT I

KEEP INSIDE MY PRIVATE PLANE.

"A FIGHTING CHANCE", IT'S ON THEBOOKSHELVES NOW.

ELIZABETH WARREN.

>> HEY THAT'S OUR SHOW, HERE ISTHE MOMENT OF ZEN.

>> DAMN MAN I'M GOVERNOR CAN YOUJUST SHUT UP FOR A SECOND?

>> YOU KNOW THAT NEVER GETS OLD.
