U.S. Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren said she never dreamed she'd be the 'warm-up' act for former President Bill Clinton. But that is exactly what she did on the second day of the Democratic National Convention, calling on America to "level the playing field," so that "everyone pays a fair share and everyone has a real shot."
