Sen. Elizabeth Warren, the Massachusetts Democrat who decided to suspend her presidential campaign after failing to even win her home state on Super Tuesday, did not immediately come out and endorse one of the two remaining, leading candidates, former VP Joe Biden or Sen. Bernie Sanders.
Many progressives believed that she would side with Sanders since the policies she advocated on the campaign stump seem to more closely align with his. But after an appearance on MSNBC's Rachel Maddow program Friday, it could be she's preparing to endorse Biden.
And why? She's upset with so-called "Bernie Bros" who are torching her on social media.
According to The Hill:
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) said Thursday that presidential candidates are responsible for attacks their supporters are making online, adding that such attacks are a problem among supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders’s (I-Vt.) 2020 campaign.
“I want to say for all candidates … we are responsible for the people who claim to be our supporters and do really threatening, ugly, dangerous things to others,” Warren said.
That would seem to some people like she's leaning towards Biden, but of course, at this point, that's just speculation.
Still, when Maddow asked her about the online attacks by Sanders supporters at her and her own backers, Warren responded, "It's not just about me."
“I think that's a real problem with this online bullying and sort of organized nastiness," she added.

When Maddow asked if this is a bigger problem among supporters of Sanders’s campaign, Warren responded that it is.
“It just is,” she said.
There is some wiggle room, perhaps, for Warren to still support Sanders. But that might also depend on how well he does in the upcoming primaries, which begin again next week.
