Elizabeth Warren Hits Boston Dailies Double

The local dailies are giving a whole new meaning to the Warren Report.

Yesterday’s Boston Globe was a Love Letter to Liz (actually a mash note, not to get technical about it). The paper devoted over 25% of its Ideas section to making a Warren for President case, starting with this rare front-page editorial.

Democrats need Elizabeth Warren’s voice in 2016 presidential race

DEMOCRATS WOULD be making a big mistake if they let Hillary Clinton coast to the presidential nomination without real opposition, and, as a national leader, Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren can make sure that doesn’t happen. While Warren has repeatedly vowed that she won’t run for president herself, she ought to reconsider. And if Warren sticks to her refusal, she should make it her responsibility to help recruit candidates to provide voters with a vigorous debate on her signature cause, reducing income inequality, over the next year.

 

There are three – count ’em, three – other pieces playing variations on that theme in this high-priced spread:

That’s a lotta real estate for Warren to gobble up.

Not to be left home from the dance, the Boston Herald jumped on the Lizwagon today.

For starters, there’s this Kimberly Atkins column:

For Clinton to win she needs Warren to run

WASHINGTON — Elizabeth Warren, as we now know her, would make a terrible presidential candidate. But her party, the Democrats — including presumptive nominee Hillary Clinton ­— need Elizabeth Warren to run.

Because they need a primary, and no one else can give them one.

 

The Herald’s Tom Shattuck is even more desperate for a Warren run.

Please, please, PLEASE! Go for it!

Let the movement begin.

Starting today, all good progressives should write it on their Starbucks latte cups:

Run Liz Run.

And don’t stop there. Facebook profile pics, Twitter avatars, the dirty windows of your Priuses, Subarus and Range Rovers — even the Burberry sweater your Maltese named “Chloe” wears — take a Sharpie to that Shar-Pei and scrawl “Run Liz Run.”

 

(There’s also, inevitably, this: Indian claims would be under microscope.)

Funny – the Globe wants a Warren run to help Hillary Clinton, while the Herald wants one to hurt her.

Imagine that.
