Warren: ‘I am a Capitalist, Come On!’ (The Washington Free Beacon)

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) defensively declared herself a capitalist in an interview published Tuesday, saying markets are "what make us rich" as long as they're "fair."

Speaking with CNBC's John Harwood, Warren rejected the idea she is a "polarizing" figure.

"You are more polarizing than some. My question to you is, do you embrace that? Are you happy with that?" Harwood asked.

"That's funny you'd say that. I actually don’t see it that way," Warren said. "I see it as wherever I go, people know what I fight for, and a lot of folks agree with me, and even a lot of folks who don't respect the fact that I’m pretty darn clear about it and pretty straightforward about my fights for it."
