According to The Boston Globe, which obtained an early copy of the book A Fighting Chance, Warren reveals a series of interactions with Obama and his staff that were at times tense and, on one occasion, borderline sexist.
The Globe opens their review of the book by detailing a “tense conversation” that occurred between Obama and Warren in which the president attempted to convince then Harvard University professor Warren to help create an agency she had originally proposed, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.
“You’re jamming me, Elizabeth,” Warren recalls Obama telling her after noting that she makes both congressional Republicans and financial professionals “very nervous.”
“Sometimes you have to trust the president,’’ he continued, to which Warren relented.

The UK Government plans to make anyone aiming to view porn online prove that they are over 18 years of age through new requirements for website owners.
The new laws will see adult website owners forced to block anyone unable to provide proof that they are over the age of 18, in a bid to crack down on children viewing pornographic websites, The Sunday Times has reported.
The system is expected to be similar to one used abroad, with credit card details or official records being provided those visiting pornographic websites in order to gain access. Sites that fail to comply with the measures will be blocked.
I still remember very well when I first saw “Watership Down”. It was a Sunday afternoon in the early 90s. It was Spring, but the weather outside was shite. Fortunately, there was an animation film on TV, a non-Disney-film about a bunch of bunnies. Sounded solid to me, so I sat down with some choc and tried to have a good time with it - but to my surprise, it wasn’t exactly enjoyable! It was actually rather disturbing and I ended up pretty unsettled - and stoked!
IGN.com has an interesting report up today. They say multiple sources have told them Telltale Games, the folks behind the recent Fables game, The Wolf Among Us, and The Walking Dead, is working on a similar escapade based on George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire books (or the HBO Game of Thrones series, it’s not clear). Telltale’s Steve Allison, SVP of Publishing, told them, “We get these sorts of rumors about what we could be working on next cropping up all the time. Officially we have no comment.” Perhaps they’re actually just testing the waters to see if fans would be interested in something like this? I know I definitely am. I’d like to put my vote in now for Brienne of Tarth being the main character. We’ll keep you updated but remember: When you play the Game of Thrones game, you win or you die. Just like pretty much every other game. Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?
