Elizabeth Warren This Week. Elizabeth Warren Hopes Hillary Clinton Makes 2016

The hottest star in the Democratic Party, Massachusetts U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren, will tell anyone that will listen, as she did today on a popular Sunday news show: "I am not running for President of the United States."

Invariably, that hottest of hot Democrats, will add: "Hillary Clinton is terrific and I hope she runs for President of the United States."

Not exact quotes, but we will get to that in a minute.

A recent Quinnipiac poll taken in December, Warren came in as the third "hottest" politician in the country, just ahead of President Obama and just behind Hillary Clinton. That same poll showed New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is the "hottest," but rest assured that "Bridgegate" ended that run.

George Stephanopoulos, the host of ABC News "This Week," interviewed Warren on Sunday. Warren said that she hopes Hillary Clinton will embark on a presidential run in 2016.

Just to make one more point clear. Warren said recently, "I'm not running for president. I'm not running for president. I'm not running for president. You can ask it lots of different ways."

She repeated this mantra once again today and added that of "All of the women – Democratic women I should say of the Senate – urged Hillary Clinton to run," Warren said on ABC’s "This Week."

Quickly adding "And I hope she does."


"Hillary is terrific," added Warren.

The letter Warren referred to was signed by all Senate Democratic women, including herself, last fall that privately encouraged the former secretary of state, senator and first lady to run for the White House in 2016. Though liberal activists want Warren for the presidency, the senator said in repeated interviews in the last week that she was not running in 2016.

The Massachusetts senator is currently promoting her book, "A Fighting Chance.' The assumption was that her book was a kickoff of her campaign.

But it is not. Warren is compassionate about many issues and that is the purpose of the book.

The talk of an Elizabeth Warren candidacy for president will not cease, getting asked the question constantly.

Warren wants the questions to stop.

The questions will not stop. But believe her when she says no. At least not in 2016, but 2020 or 2024 are still possibilities for Warren's run for the White House.
