A new edition of the left-leaning magazine The New Republic imagines Hillary Clinton's political "nightmare" as a crowd of people holding up Elizabeth Warren masks.

The Image, an homage to the original promotional poster for the film "Being John Malkovich," will run with the tagline, "A Democratic Party that realizes its soul lies with Elizabeth Warren instead."

Clinton, who is weighing a bid for president in 2016, is widely viewed among Democrats as the party's logical nominee should she run. Unlike in 2008, when then-Sen. Barack Obama was making overtures about a serious bid for the presidency, no apparent Democratic challengers to Clinton have yet emerged.

And, while some progressive Democrats have pointed to Warren as a potential alternative to Clinton, the senator from Massachusetts has denied any interest in running for president. When asked recently whether she would consider it, she answered in the negative, and she was among the signatories on a letter sent to Clinton in February from the Senate's Democratic women, urging her to run for president in 2016.
