From Howard Kurtz at Fox News:

Wondering what Elizabeth Warren thinks about the Hillary e-mail debacle?

She isn’t saying.

That tells me two things.

First, Warren actually isn’t eyeing a presidential run (duh) and doesn’t want to say anything that could be viewed as even mildly critical of the party’s virtually certain nominee.

Second, the Massachusetts senator doesn’t like dealing with the national press.

Don’t take my word for it. Here’s The Hill:

“Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), who has effectively stopped dealing personally with the press in public areas on Capitol Hill, declined to comment on the issue Wednesday. The liberal favorite walked briskly away from questions as an aide stepped in as a buffer.”

Warren made a rare exception to explain her stiff-arming to the Globe:

“Every senator will make his or her own decision on how to handle this. But I want to be able to talk about the issues in depth, and I don’t think that works very well in the hallway.”
