Elizabeth Warren Already Hinting at Presidential Run in 2020

Elizabeth Warren Already Hinting at Presidential Run in 2020

Who else?

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.”

And the year ends on yet one more happy note.

Go for it Fauxcahontas! You and the Hilloser would promise a wildly entertaining primary.

She’ll be 71 and bringing her pack of fake Indian lies and populist muck and one term of Senate incompetency. I suspect she won’t run

Go for it, Sister Running Bear (or is it Running BARE?).

her three brothers served in the military

If

military service = good

then this just reinforces the fact that she didn’t serve in the military. What campaign slogan would she run on, “I’m not one of my brothers”?
