ABCNews ran an interesting interview with Elizabeth Warren yesterday that will likely give pause to Hilary Clinton. It will likely upset President Obama as well. In doing both it will likely make Elizabeth Warren seem even more a potential presidential candidate.
“I read a number of articles just within the last week,” journalist David Muir said. “And one of them is titled, Hilary’s nightmare. And they are talking about you.”
Senator Elizabeth Warren smiled somewhat uncomfortably. “You know, I don’t get who writes these headlines or what they are about,” Elizabeth Warren said. “I think there is just kind of a pundit world out there.”
David Muir then asked her if she is going to run. Her answer left the door wide open by the care and coy in how she responded.
“I am not running for president,” Elizabeth Warren said. David asked if there is anything that could change her mind. “David, like I said, I am not running for president,” she reiterated. When asked if Hilary Clinton would make a good president she gave a non-committal answer. “I think Hilary Clinton is terrific,” she said. “We got to stay focus on these issues right now.”
Elizabeth Warren has been a warrior for the middle class. She has the necessary populous message as demonstrated with her appearance on Chris Hayes’ All-In. She recently took on Ted Cruz and Paul Ryan for their disregard for the middle class with their comments and policies. And she appropriately blasted the GOP for cutting unemployment insurance.
Krystal Ball got it right on Elizabeth Warren
Krystal Ball took a lot of heat a few months ago from some on the left for her piece where she suggested that Hillary Clinton should not run for the presidency. Ball did not back down and instead prepared another piece encouraging Elizabeth Warren to run. This leads to the most important question. Who really represents main street America?
This interview really leaves the door open for an Elizabeth Warren run. She is not now running for president. She however did not say that she would not run in the future.
