Bloggers are waiting breathlessly for this announcement. What a good time we'll have if it comes about.
Edward Klein speculates in This means Warren: Obama backs challenger to Hillary where he says Valerie Jarrett, under Obama orders, is wooing Elizabeth Warren to get her to run against Hillary Clinton in the Democrat's presidential primary.
Here's one of his unnamed sources:
“The Obamas believe that Warren sees things from the same ideological point of view as they do. She is a committed progressive who, like Obama, wants to transform America into a European-style democratic-socialist state.”
[Aside: Do they really talk like that? Conservatives have long believed Obama wants to turn the country into a "socialist state," although the model is probably more South America than European. But do progressives actually come out and say it? It wasn't too long ago that calling Obama a socialist was a no-no. If it's OK now I didn't get the memo.]
“Both Valerie and Michelle Obama have convinced the president that Elizabeth Warren is his Mini-Me,” said a person who has discussed the issue with Jarrett.
Lots of unnamed sources in there, and Klein could be getting played. But it's fun to speculate.
