Elizabeth Warren 2016?


Many stops on Sen. Elizabeth Warren's book tour include a question (both whispered and asked directly during Q&A) on whether she would run in 2016. The senator repeated her denial that she'd run, while redirecting the talk to issues important to tackle now, like refinancing student loans.


Warren discussed the genesis for her idea for the CFPB. It flashed back to her nearly burning down the kitchen as a young working mom by leaving the toaster plugged in. She later considered that since there is an agency that handles product safety (like burning toasters), why isn't there one dealing with consumers' financial safety?
