Skip to comments.Hmmm … Elizabeth Warren refuses to say she “will not run” for President (Watch out Hillary!)

I told you so. Elizabeth Warrens repeated supposed refusals to run for President always were framed in the present tense: I am not running for President.
That, of course, technically was correct. I dont think anyone of note is running for President yet, but many are seriously considering it and likely will run.
Nothing makes Warrens word games more clear than her interview with (my law school classmate) Ruth Marcus of The Washington Post:

Watch out America.
Too many people will vote for POTUS based on a magazine cover or about 10 seconds of thought.
Cat fight! Cat fight!
The idea that she can even be given consideration is truly frightening. Even though we all saw through the Obama mystique, I could see how some unthinking people could find appeal. But her?
I wouldn’t read too much into it. You ask all 100 Senators the same question, and I can’t imagine more than 1 or 2 - if that many - would completely rule out running for President.
Warren will be crushed by Wall Street’s errand boys long before she’s a threat to their errand girl Hillary.
Her voice is like Marta Stewart.
Her blather sounds so caring, and “consumer focused.”
It would be to true to listen to her BS while she pounds the final nails into our coffin.
“Hammers” not pounds. That is a favorite word in her vocabulary.
For those of you who remember Joey Styles from the old ECW, wouldn't it be great to see him as the moderator for a debate between these two?
The only place Warren could have been elected is MA or CA. If they are touting her now it only to serve as camo for the real candidate (probably Deval Patrick)
And lastly Sarah Palin would be the first competent and honest President in thirty or more years.
Elizabeth Warren is the new darling of the Obama Left which of course includes the media.
She is the reason the Left is going after Hillary, at least relatively speaking---Hillary is old, tired, unpleasant and rich.
Warren is another "clean slate," who is known for nothing other than scapegoating "the rich" and for once having been a Native American.
She will stay out of the spotlight as long as she can. As 2016 rolls around she will ride an adoring media tide to the nomination.
The union liberal males love her I can tell you that. She has the homosexuals and man-hating women on her side, too. It is a good start.
I have said from the first mention of Elizabeth Warren that she will be the Dem nominee. A very radical woman. I can predict that she will NOT win her home state of Oklahoma.
White guilt has been assuaged with the election of Obama. I doubt we’ll see another black man/woman elected for at least a generation.
You’d think we would have learned a lesson electing U.S. Senators with thin resumes (a la Warren) as well, but who knows.
I think Biden will give it a go and that will be entertaining. Maybe Rahm Emanuel, too.
Just what we need — another inexperienced, junior Senator being elected POTUS. Not because of ability, but because of Political Correctness.
I would not count Deval Patrick out. Cuomo is a possibility too, though a more remote one. The Dems will be against nominating another white male.
Sadly, I think the country has shifted demographically and ideologically. Too many people (of all races) dependent on free stuff. Too few red states. Whoever the Democratic nominee is, they will have a built in advantage.
A populist wave is about to wash over the country. Warren is probably the ideal candidate in this environment from a Leftist’s point of view.
Did I mention that a populist wave produced Hitler?
Jerry Brown might do it too. He’s old, but he could pull it off.
Warren is pushing socialism and redistribution as a "good thing". Sort of like a nightmare nanny-state version of Martha Stewart with the power of FedGov.
smoke signals say she need heap big wampum.
It takes an Indian to hunt a buffalo.
The same faction that brought out a 2-year senator Obama to challenge Ms Inevitable-2008 probably already has someone to step up to challenge Ms Inevitable-2016, if Hillary does run.
The Clintons score high in personality polls because those pols are usually from LIVs — many of whom still get a thrill from ole BJ. The book tour reveals how little the public really cares for Hillary, however.
Unlike the Pubbies who will flood the primary debates stages with a dozen faux-conservatives and a few real conservatives to dilute the pool for the GOPelite selectee, the Dems will have one major challenger for Hillary.
Those “high cheekbones” are very presidential.
I’ve noticed that all my Dem friends will allow criticism of Hillary now but they will not tolerate criticism of Warren. That tells me that she is the one.
Warren better stay out of any DC parks.....
Oh, please let this crazy b- run.
That would be so great.
I've noticed the same thing. A lot of Dem criticism of Hillary centers around her time as a Walmart director. Many lefties see her as a shill for big-money corporations. And there is truth in that.
But just try bringing up Warren's faults. The bogus (and insulting) Indian claim, her lack of ANY experience, etc. You'll get shouted down fast.
As of now, Hillary is still the favorite, IMHO. She's got the money, and the name recognition. But the grass-roots Dems want Warren.
Bring up Warren’s money and they really come unglued.
Elizabeth Warren was born in 1949. She is 65. Where is the next generation of Democrats? Hopefully, in four or five years they’ll all be too old to run.
Jerry Brown (Governor of California) was born in 1938. He is 76. You’d think if they had younger people they’d start putting them forward. But no, it’s all about power. Personal power. Right on, Lefties!
Now that the demonrats have US stirred things up, her continually using the faux indian persona to game the system is far more offensive than the name Washington "Redskins" is.
As such, she'd be a fine sacrificial communist lamb for the growing grass roots/silent majority/TEA party anger to focus on.
*** and for once having been a Native American.***
Don’t laugh! Bill is an “Honorary” Cherokee. Maybe we will see some Inter-Tribal warfare soon. United Keetoowah Band.
“Beginning in the 1970s, the UKB made some people honorary associate members, to recognize their services to the nation. Such memberships did not entitle the persons to voting or any other tribal rights, and had nothing to do with claims of Cherokee ancestry.”
” Ward Churchill, a former Professor of Ethnic Studies at the University of Colorado, is an honorary associate member in the UKB. Former President Bill Clinton is a notable associate member.”
Fauxcahontas is the straw candidate. Obama and Hillary do not get along.
Obama behind the scenes will help the Squaw to bleed off votes for Clinton.
Look for another candidate to slip in behind these two for the nomination. Who that will be I have no idea.....
Be careful what you wish for. I never thought anyone with the name Barack Hussein Obama would ever be elected so soon after 9/11.
Consider this: If cultural populist Sarah Palin and economic populist Elizabeth Warren were to run together on a populist platform, they would win 70% of the popular vote and close to 100% of the electoral votes.
