Elizabeth Warren

Elizabeth Warren was my professor 20-odd years ago, and she was hands-down the most knowledgeable and effective debater I've ever had the pleasure (and sometimes misfortune) to engage with. But unlike some other great debaters (Anthony Weiner, for instance), she slays you with such intelligence, steel, charm and grace that most people come away liking her even if they disagree with her. I understand why her supporters adore her - she was hands-down the most important academic influence on who I am today. And even though some may dismiss her as a Harvard elite, I know that she earned those credentials the hard way and is an Okie at heart. She can resonate with people at all levels of sophistication.
