The Boston Globe has always been one of Elizabeth Warren’s greatest champions and defenders. So it’s pretty shocking that they just published an editorial advising her not to run for president in 2020. They say that her moment has passed. That’s gotta hurt!
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Boston Globe Advises Warren to Bow Out of 2020 Field
The Boston Globe used former Massachusetts governor Deval Patrick’s Thursday announcement that he would not make a run for president as an opportunity to advise Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) to make the same decision.
“Running for president is hard,” wrote the paper’s editorial board. “Deciding not to run? That can be even harder.”
The Globe‘s board, which in 2015 argued that “Democrats need Elizabeth Warren’s voice in 2016 presidential race,” does not explicitly say Warren shouldn’t run, but it does lay out the case for why it would be an ill-advised decision.
“Warren missed her moment in 2016, and there’s reason to be skeptical of her prospective candidacy in 2020,” it wrote. “While Warren won reelection, her margin of victory in November suggests there’s a ceiling on her popularity; Republican governor Charlie Baker garnered more votes than her in a state that is supposed to be a Democratic haven. Meanwhile, a September poll indicated that Massachusetts voters were more enthusiastic about Patrick making a White House bid than Warren.”
How much do you want to bet that she runs anyway? She’s already too emotionally invested in the idea.
