‘Ouch’! Elizabeth Warren’s bad day gets even worse with this ‘harsh assessment’ from an old friend
Oh man … if Elizabeth Warren was looking for a Band-Aid for her bruised ego after that New York Times article on her advisers criticizing her, she won’t find it in the Boston Globe:
Yeeks: The Boston Globe Ed Board, which called on Elizabeth Warren to run for president in 2016, suggests she pass this time.
"She has become a divisive figure. A unifying voice is what the country needs now after the polarizing politics of Trump." https://t.co/NwkSaAIBkG

That’s pretty harsh, yeah. Not harsh enough for us to feel sorry for her, but harsh nonetheless.

Couldn’t be happening to a nicer gal, honestly.
No matter the argument here, it's striking that a paper whose journalism has flourished when MA candidates have run for prez (Kerry in '04, Romney in '08 and '12) is imploring one its own *not* to run.

Fair point, though:
I'm not a Warren fan, but find one candidate who won't become a "divisive" figure from the moment they announce — particularly in the current environment. https://t.co/6p9sMZbpl8
