The Democrats have no back bench so this isn’t surprising. Will the Bernie Sanders fans forgive her for backing Hillary?
The Hill reports:
Warren stirs talk of 2020 White House run
Sen. Elizabeth Warren is set to bolster her Senate resume next year, sparking early talk about a 2020 presidential bid.
The Massachusetts Democrat will join the Armed Services Committee in 2017, branching out beyond the tough-on-Wall Street message that made her a liberal favorite.
Warren has tied the decision to her family — her three brothers served in the military — and Massachusetts ranks in the top 10 states on military spending, according to a Pentagon report.
But the announcement spawned a wave of a media speculation that Warren is filling portfolio gaps to position herself for a 2020 presidential run.
MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell called the step a “very important move that could be a first step in a presidential campaign.”
The Washington Post’s Daily 202 — a morning rundown aimed at decisionmakers inside Washington — speculated that Warren and Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.), who is separately joining the Foreign Relations Committee, “very clearly want to seek the presidency for themselves in 2020.”
