Harvard Law School professor and Wall Street critic Elizabeth Warren says she's running to take back the late Ted Kennedy's longtime Senate seat from Republican freshman star Scott Brown, because in her words, "Middle class families have been chipped at, hacked at, squeezed and hammered for a generation now. And I don't think Washington gets it."

In her announcement video she also says "Washington is rigged for big corporations that hire armies of lobbyists . . . It isn't right and it's the reason I'm running for the United States Senate."
