Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren hopes another Democratic lady, Hillary Clinton, makes a bid for the White House in 2016.

But Warren declined to endorse Clinton's candidacy explicitly when she appeared Sunday on "This Week."

"You know, all of the women - Democratic women, I should say, of the Senate - urged Hillary Clinton to run, and I hope she does," Warren said when asked whether Clinton was her candidate in 2016.

"Hillary is terrific," she said when asked again whether he would endorse her if Clinton makes a run for the Democratic nomination.

Maria Sharapova defeated Ana Ivanovic to win the Porsche Grand Prix title in Stuttgart, Germany, Sunday.

The win marked the 30th title of the Russian tennis ace's career.

When she's serving on the tennis court, Sharapova has instead been serving up sweets from her Sugarpova candy line.

Perhaps it was all that sugar that propelled her to greatness.

Jeff Bridges, star of "The Big Lebowski," and his band performed Friday at Lebowski Fest.

An annual celebration of the 1998 cult classic film has been staged across the country since 2002, according to The Associated Press.

It's nice to see the dude continues to abide after all these years.
