What They Value in Politics

Amy Chozick reports on Elizabeth Warren's new book A Fighting Chance:
Three decades later, Betsy was a Harvard law professor and talking with a political operative as she contemplated a run for the Senate. She began to tell him that her first husband [who she had dovorced] had died in 2003. “Before I could take a breath and explain about Jim’s terrible illness, . . . about the blow to Amelia and Alex, about how he never had the chance to know his beautiful grandchildren — the research guy shouted ‘Great!’ ” In political terms, a deceased ex-husband is better than a living one.
