The video of Elizabeth Warren, a Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate from Massachusetts being called a "socialist whore" by a man at a meeting this week for campaign volunteers, has gotten much attention.

Huffington Post's Ryan Grim wrote about the incident and posted video of it.What's striking so about her exchange with the man was how calm Warren remained throughout.The man, who said he was jobless for more than a year and who was clearly hostile to her. After the Tucson, Ariz., shootings of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and others, it takes good nerves to for a politician to stay steady in this kind of situation.
Of course Warren, a Harvard University law professor, got plenty of experience dealing with hostility during her time in Washington, first as the chair of the TARP oversight panel, later as the Obama administration official charged with setting up the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.
In that latter job, she usually received fairly rough treatment from congressional Republicans who saw her as too fond of regulation. She showed a patience with those lawmakers similar to what she demonstrated in the video.Many of her liberal supporters believe she wasn't all that well treated by the President Obama and Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner either, by the way.
So she has had plenty of practice at remaining unflappable.Political candidates are going to have to work on maintaining such zen-like calm since if they rise to take the bait at such moments, like when they're being heckled or find something else annoying, an ugly response is sure to be captured on video and go viral.That was the big lesson, after all, from George Allen's famous "macaca" moment.
Born in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, Elizabeth Warren became the first member of her family to graduate from college, eventually earning her law degree from Rutgers. After spending time as a law professor at Harvard University, Warren was selected to lead the National Bankruptcy Review Commission. In 2008, she served as head the Congressional Oversight Panel for the Troubled Asset Relief Program, and helped design the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau in 2011. 
Early Life
Born in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, on June 22, 1949, Elizabeth Warren was the last of four children—and the only daughter—of Donald and Pauline Herring. Warren spent most of her early life on what she referred to as “the ragged edge of the middle class.” Her father worked mostly as a maintenance man, and when he suffered a heart attack that created massive medical bills, Warren’s mother brought in extra money by working in the catalogue-order department at Sears. Warren also began helping out at the age of 13, by waiting tables at her aunt’s Mexican restaurant. But despite efforts to relieve the financial strain on the family, money remained tight; Warren recalled her mother’s hesitation to take her to the doctor when she was a child because of a lack of finances.
A brilliant student, Warren became a state debate champion and graduated high school at the age 16. That same year, she entered George Washington University on a full debate scholarship. After two years at the university, Warren left school to marry her high-school sweetheart, NASA mathematician Jim Warren. She and Warren moved to Texas, and Elizabeth finished her degree in speech pathology at the University of Houston, becoming the first member of her immediate family to graduate from college.
Elizabeth and her husband moved to New Jersey, where Warren worked in public schools, helping children with disabilities. During this time, Warren gave birth to two children, daughter Amelia and son Alex. The day her first child turned 2, she headed to graduate school for law at Rutgers University. She earned her J.D. in 1976, and practiced law out of her living room.
Political Career
By 1978, she had divorced her first husband. In the year after the split, Warren began exploring the economic pressures facing the American middle class, looking specifically at a 1978 law passed by Congress that made it easier for companies and individuals to declare bankruptcy. Warren decided to investigate the reasons why Americans were ending up in bankruptcy court, and discovered that most of the financial victims were from middle-class families who had lost jobs, experienced financial hardship from a divorce, or suffered illnesses that decimated their savings. From then on, Warren would focus her research on bankruptcy and commercial law—specifically on how it affected financially distressed companies and women, the elderly and the working poor.
Warren married Harvard law professor Bruce Mann in 1980. She and Mann then moved together around the country, with Warren teaching at the University of Texas, the University of Michigan, and the University of Pennsylvania. The couple finally settled at Harvard in 1995. That same year, Warren was asked to advise the new National Bankruptcy Review Commission. During Warren’s time as chief adviser, Warren testified against Congressional efforts to limit consumers' ability to file for bankruptcy. Despite her best efforts, the bill passed in 2005. It was considered a victory for the business lobby, and a defeat for Warren.

In November 2008, Warren was tapped by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to chair the Congressional Oversight Panel, which was created to monitor the $700 billion bank bailout effort known as the Troubled Asset Relief Program. Warren headed investigations, conducted televised public hearings, led interviews of government officials and submitted monthly reports demanding accountability from banks. For her oversight efforts, The Boston Globe named Elizabeth ‘Bostonian of the Year’ in 2009.
