Warren and Biden once faced off in the 'bankruptcy wars,' a possible preview of tonight’s debate

For a preview of what might occur in Houston — Will Biden punch down at Warren? Will Warren try to topple Biden? What lines of attack will they use? — it’s worth reviewing how they faced each other back in 2005.

From the mid-1990s to the mid-2000s, Warren, then a law professor at Harvard, shuttled back and forth between Cambridge, Mass., and Washington, D.C., as a combatant in what she later called the “bankruptcy wars.” At stake was legislation that sought to address a dramatic rise in bankruptcy filings by making it harder for individuals to discharge their debts through bankruptcy, a goal that credit card companies had championed for years.

They finally met face-to-face on Feb. 10, 2005. Warren was the expert witness; Biden was the interrogator. In her books and op-eds, Warren had already criticized Biden for the bill’s disproportionate impact on women. But there, in the Hart Senate Office Building, their mutual animosity spilled out into the open.

Biden grinned. “I got it,” he said sarcastically. “OK. You are very good, professor.”
