Warren, frankly, doesn't enjoy the trappings of Washington, where she currently serves as chair of the Congressional Oversight Panel charged with reviewing the financial system and overseeing the Treasury Department's implementation of the Troubled Asset Relief Program.

"No. But it's important. Sometimes you just do the things because you think they're important," she said. "For me, the whole bureaucracy, the whole administrative work, it's about supporting what I really care about, which is the economic security of middle-class families."

Despite the attention she has gained during the recent weeks of intense backroom lobbying, Warren has no intention of a career change.

"I think this has come along too late for me to turn into a politician. I sure hope so," she said. "I don't think I could if I wanted to be. I've mouthed off far too many times for far too long on far too many subjects to be acceptable in the way that a good politician would have to be."
