     A waste of time, good for Republicans.  Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren officially launched her presidential campaign Saturday morning, over a month after she announced an exploratory committee to test the viability of a bid for the White House.

     Warren was introduced by a few members of Congress who also endorsed her, including Massachusetts Sen. Ed Markey and Rep. Joe Kennedy III, who was a student of Warren when she was a professor at Harvard University.

     Warren introduced her campaign by telling the story of Lawrence, where laborers -- many of whom were immigrants -- toiled under terrible working conditions. She framed the 1912 walkout by women textile workers as a blueprint for her campaign, one focused on economic inequality.
