Elizabeth Warren, the freshman Democratic senator from Massachusetts, did not say whether or not she thought her fellow Democrat, Hillary Clinton, would make a good president. ABC News's David Muir asked Warren the question in an interview airing Monday night on ABC.

"Do you think Hillary Clinton would make a good president?" Muir asked.

"I think Hillary Clinton is terrific," Warren said. "We've gotta stay focused on these issues right now."

Warren also said she is not running for president, despite some calls for her to challenge Clinton for the Democratic nomination in 2016. Watch the video below:

Warren defeated Republican senator Scott Brown in 2012, and she has been a favorite of the left wing of the party. As Muir points out in the interview, the New Republic published a piece last November calling Warren "Hillary's nightmare."
