Elizabeth Warren Heap Big Denying 2016 Presidential Ambitions

I really hope America’s favorite counterfeit Cherokee runs for president, because it’ll be funnier that way. Elizabeth Warren keeps denying any plans to throw her headdress into the ring, but her fans keep hoping.

Annie Karni, Politico:

Elizabeth Warren says she has no intention of jumping into the 2016 race. But she recently met behind closed doors with members of the “Draft Warren” movement who are urging her to run for president.

The Massachusetts senator held a private meeting April 22 with a small group of progressive leaders from across the country — including some vocal “Draft Warren” supporters who continue to hold out hope that she’ll enter the presidential race…

An aide to Warren maintained that the senator did not know the group she was meeting with had any connection to the “Draft Warren” campaign until POLITICO informed her office. “The point of the meeting was to discuss economic and social justice issues,” the aide said. “As Sen. Warren has said many times, she does not support the draft group’s efforts and is not running for president.”

Never give up, Warrenites!

We could ask Hillary Clinton, who has some experience in this area, but she’s not taking questions.
