Consumer advocate Elizabeth Warren and incumbent Scott Brown are neck and neck in the polls as they vie for Ted Kennedy's old Senate seat.

An article in the November issue of Vanity Fair recounts Warren's push to create the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau over the past four years and how President Obama "pushed aside" Warren to lead the bureau during "one of the most brutal Washington battles this year."

Looking back, Warren tells Vanity Fair she's "done brutal." But as the magazine points out, the race for Senate is "expected to redefine brutal."
