Now that Harvard Law School Prof. Elizabeth Warren won't be running the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau — President Obama bypassed her over the weekend — speculation is heating up that she'll challenge Scott Brown for his U.S. Senate seat in Massachusetts.

Warren did her best to avoid the question when asked Monday. But she also didn't rule out a run.

David Catanese, national political reporter for Politico, has been following the Warren story. He joined Morning Edition Tuesday from Washington to discuss the speculation.
