Boston Globe Tells Elizabeth Warren Not to Run in 2020: ‘She Has Become a Divisive Figure’

The Wrap Friday, 7 December 2018
Boston Globe Tells Elizabeth Warren Not to Run in 2020: ‘She Has Become a Divisive Figure’Elizabeth Warren’s 2020 presidential chances took a brutal hit on Friday after her state’s most influential paper, the Boston Globe, came out sharply against her nomination, saying that she missed her moment in 2016 and had now become a divisive figure in national politics.

“Warren missed her moment in 2016, and there’s reason to be skeptical of her prospective candidacy in 2020,” said the Globe. “While Warren is an effective and impactful senator with an important voice nationally, she has become a divisive figure. A unifying voice is what the country needs now after the polarizing politics of Donald Trump.”

The Globe noted how they previously urged Warren to challenge Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination in 2016.

“Clearing the decks for Clinton didn’t exactly end well for Democrats, did it?” they chided.

In the Obama-era, the Massachusetts Senator had been one of the party’s rising stars. Her takedowns of smug bankers and financiers during ordinarily dry Senate hearings routinely went rival on social media.

She also played a critical role in the 2010 Dodd-Frank financial reform legislation passed in the wake the 2008 financial crisis and helped created the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau — arguably the bill’s most famous achievement.

President Trump, however, has often used Warren as a political foil, openly disparaging her as “Pocahontas” over Warren’s claims to having Native American ancestry. The questions over the issue even prompted the senator to undergo a formal DNA test in October to check the claim which showed she did have ancestry dating from six to ten generations ago making her between 1/64th and 1/1,024th Native American.

But far from vindication, critics — including the Cherokee Nation —  were unimpressed.

“Using a DNA test to lay claim to any connection to the Cherokee Nation or any tribal nation, even vaguely, is inappropriate and wrong,” they said in a statement at the time. “Senator Warren is undermining tribal interests with her continued claims of tribal heritage.”
