Elizabeth Warren
isn’t running for president… yet. In an interview with ABC News to promote her new book, the freshman senator from Massachusetts was sticking closely to her non-denial denial of a potential 2016 run: “I’m not running for president.” The liberal icon stayed on script, talking about the need for left-wing activists to mobilize for this falls’ midterm elections until confronted with this question: “Do you think Hillary Clinton would make a good president?” Warren quickly swatted it aside: “I think Hillary Clinton is terrific. We’ve gotta stay focused on these issues right now.”
