Inside Biden and Warren’s Yearslong Feud

On a February morning in 2005 in a hearing room in the Dirksen Senate Office Building, Joe Biden confronted Elizabeth Warren over a subject they’d been feuding over for years: the country’s bankruptcy laws.

Warren, at the time a Harvard law professor, had been fighting to kill the same legislation for seven years.

Now, with the legislation nearing a vote, Biden publicly grappled with Warren face to face.
