(Newser) – Elizabeth Warren might be out of that gig at the CFPB today, but that's only got tongues wagging busily about her future job prospects: namely, a run for Scott Brown's Massachusetts Senate seat, reports the Hill. Warren herself declined to rule out a run when asked by MSNBC today, saying only that she was taking the grandkids "to Legoland," then heading home "to think. But I need to do that thinking not from Washington."

Democrats have been flailing in search for a candidate strong enough to take back Ted Kennedy's old seat—long a Democratic certainty—from an incumbent with a $10 million warchest. But one liberal group isn't dilly-dallying about fundraising for Warren, notes Politico: The Progressive Change Campaign Committee has raised more than $15,000 for her in the course of four hours. "We want to build her a stockpile that's ready for her on Day 1," says a PCCC rep.
