The 113th Congress - A Sisterhood of Senators?

Twenty women Senators...  I guess that it's a start.
Mustn't get excited; put the horse before the cart.
Just because they're women doesn't mean they'll all agree.
Still, I'm very glad that Warren's Representing me.

She might soon be senior in a funny twist of fate.
Kerry, if confirmed, will leave to take the reins at State.
(Barney Frank would like his job, but doesn't want to run.
As of now, in recent polls, Scott Brown is number one.)

As the Senior Senator from Massachusetts, she
Steps into the shoes once filled by Teddy Kennedy.
Warren's smart; she'll learn the moves for Senate cloakroom deals,
And, like 19 others, she'll be making them in heels.
