Will Warren Challenge Clinton in 2016?

Noam Scheiber speculates that Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) might challenge Hillary Clinton for the Democratic presidential nomination if even it's an uphill fight.

"All of which is to say, if Hillary Clinton runs and retains her ties to Wall Street, Warren will be more likely to join the race, not less. Warren is shrewd enough to understand that the future of the Democratic Party is at stake in 2016. At 64, she knows that if Hillary wins and populates yet another administration with heirs to Robert Rubin, it will be at least eight years before there's another chance to reclaim the party."

Said one former Warren aide: "Yeah, Hillary is running. And she'll probably win. But Elizabeth doesn't care about winning. She doesn't care whose turn it is."
