On her 12 p.m. ET hour MSNBC show on Monday, anchor Andrea Mitchell and USA Today’s Susan Page were positively giddy about the prospect of Senator Elizabeth Warren running for president in 2020. Promoting an interview she just conducted with the Democrat, Page excitedly recalled: “I asked if she was going to promise Massachusetts voters that she would serve all six years of her second Senate term. And she said, ‘Well, that's certainly the plan.’ That is not exactly a denial of interest in the 2020 presidential race.”
Mitchell enthusiastically chimed in: “At all. And she’s 67 years old. She is plenty young enough compared to Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton to run four years from now.” Page gushed: “Yeah, she is. And she's got, of course, a huge base of support among liberals in the Democratic Party who feel like if only she or Bernie Sanders had been nominated last time around, they believe they would have had a better chance of defeating the kind of campaign that Donald Trump ran.”
