DETROIT (AP) — At Netroots Nation, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren captures the hearts of Democratic activists thinking about the 2016 presidential campaign.

But their minds tell them that Hillary Rodham Clinton could help them hang onto the White House.

Warren received a rousing reception Friday at the annual summit of liberal activists. People chanted "Run, Liz, Run," even though Warren has repeatedly said she isn't running for president in 2016.

In the hallways, Democratic fans of Warren acknowledged Clinton is their best shot.

Clinton remains a dominant figure as Democrats begin to consider the 2016 presidential campaign.

Many liberals question Clinton's ties to Wall Street and are seeking a fresh face. But polls show the former secretary of state gives them their best chance of electing the nation's first female president.
