I thought she would consider it.

I hoped she would run.

We needed it as a country, though not for the reasons her supporters think.

Via Boston Herald:

U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren pledged today she will not run for president in 2016 and will finish her term.

The Bay State senior senator has been mentioned in the preliminary talk about the presidential race, but Hillary Clinton has generated the most buzz.

“I’m not running for president and I plan to serve out my term,” she said at a press conference in Boston with Mayor-elect Marty Walsh.

When further pressed, she added: “I pledge to serve out my term.

“I am not running for president. I am working as hard as I can to be the best possible senator I can be.”

Her putative presidential campaign may be dead, but her story lives on.

And oh, what a story it was. Some might call it a Great American Fairy Tale.
