Boston Globe pleads for Elizabeth Warren to run for president

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) should run for president, if for no other reason than to prevent the "big mistake" of letting Hillary Clinton run unopposed, according to The Boston Globe.

Clinton is too cautious on economic issues and will hew to the middle without a true challenge, the paper editorializes. By contrast, Warren is a noted Wall Street foe. And given that Republicans are likely to retain control of Congress for the foreseeable future, the best way for Warren to ensure she can "enrich the political process for years to come" is by joining the White House race now.

"Put simply, this moment was made for Elizabeth Warren," the paper says.

In addition to the editorial, the Globe on Sunday fanned the Warren 2016 flames with three accompanying op-eds touting Warren's potential candidacy.
