Did Elizabeth Warren Just Change Her Tune on Running for President?

Senator Elizabeth Warren gave an interview to People magazine for this week’s issue and was asked for roughly the thousandth time if she planned to run for president. But her answer to this query was different than all the others:

But is the freshman senator from Massachusetts herself on board with a run for the White House? Warren wrinkles her nose.

“I don’t think so,” she tells PEOPLE in an interview conducted at Warren’s Cambridge, Massachusetts, home for this week’s issue. “If there’s any lesson I’ve learned in the last five years, it’s don’t be so sure about what lies ahead. There are amazing doors that could open.”

She just doesn’t see the door of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue being one of them. Not yet, anyway. “Right now,” Warren says, “I’m focused on figuring out what else I can do from this spot” in the U.S. Senate.

As a veteran Warren-watcher, I can say with certainty this is more ambiguous than she’s ever been on the subject. “I don’t think so,” “amazing doors that could open,” and “right now” are the traditional vernacular of a someone flirting with a campaign—-and someone who wants you to know it.

1. Always seemed to me...

...she would like to be President of the US. The vast majority of Congress & Governors would take the job.

2. Personally, I don't think so.....

 

I think she was suggesting that she might have other opportunities coming up that would enhance her resume for 2024.

4. Warren would be a fantastic President

 

For her to pick up from where Obama left off would be the best case scenario - keep on fighting and doing good works under immense odds and pressure. Hillary, not so much -- would be more of the same of 2 steps forward and 3 steps back and hallelujah pass the cash, big boys.
