Axelrod: Warren Isn’t Running for President

I know Elizabeth Warren well, and my strong feeling is she’s not going to run. I think she’s trying to influence the direction of the party, and you have more influence as a potential candidate than you do if you take yourself out. So she’s allowing, she’s sticking to this language of ‘I’m not running for president,’ and titillating people with it, because it gives her more leverage.

— Former Obama adviser David Axelrod, telling Hugh Hewitt that he doesn’t think Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) poses a credible threat to Hillary Clinton’s likely presidential bid in 2016. He added: “Hillary is probably as well-positioned within her own party as any open seat candidate has been in our lifetime.”
