She is adamant: she is not running for president in 2016.


That hasn’t stopped the chatter amongst the Democratic base that U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren should run for the White House in two years time.


U.S. Rep. Michael Capuano, a Somerville Democrat, indicated he would support a Warren presidential bid earlier this week.


"There may be a million people I know that might make a good president. There are very few people who could be president, and she is in that position," the State House News Service quoted Capuano as saying.


Warren, however, is steadfast in saying she has no interest in running for the country’s highest elected office.

“As Senator Warren has said many times, she is not running for president,” Lacey J. Rose, her press secretary told the Metro Tuesday.

Hillary Clinton, the former first lady, senator and secretary of state, is widely thought to be interested in seeking the presidency in two years time.

Jeb Bush, the former Republican governor of Florida and brother and son to former presidents, meanwhile acknowledged Tuesday he was exploring the idea of a 2016 presidential run.
