    That's true. However many of them get notice because of legislation they put together and get passed and signed into law. The best example I can come up with off the top of my head is Senator Warren getting the CFPB established.

    So let's ask the question this way: what legislation did Joe Biden take the lead or was part of the leadership to get it through Congress and signed into law?

    Elizabeth Warren built the CFPB, but that was before she was a Senator. The Congress passed it and Obama signed it into law in 2010, Elizabeth Warren wasn't elected to the Seanate until 2012.

    As far as Biden is concerned he sponsored 42 bills in the Senate which I'm sure you'll agree with some and disagree with others.

    Wow, I just looked at some of the bills he sponsored --- he's gonna be running against his own record.

    She was still enjoying her status at Yale as a Native American professor when she worked on that.
