Bill Maher Wednesday threw his weight behind the movement to draft Sen. Elizabeth Warren into a primary challenge to Hillary Clinton, arguing the Democratic senator would "absolutely" be his choice over the former secretary of state.
Although Warren has made no moves toward actually running for president, there are a number of progressive groups actively trying to push the Massachusetts Democrat into the 2016 race.
In an interview with Charlie Rose, Maher praised Warren's economic policies, arguing, "I would love it if [President Obama's] economic policy was more like Elizabeth Warren's ... Love her, absolutely."
Asked if wants her to run against Hillary, Maher said, "Yes, absolutely. She would absolutely be my preference above Hillary."
