Elizabeth Warren Wants to Be Your Defense Against the Dark Arts Professor
— Elizabeth Warren (@elizabethforma) June 29, 2016
Get your fanfics ready! In response to “American Hogwarts,” which we found out on Pottermore is based in Massachusetts, Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren tweeted J.K. Rowling that she’d be totally up for the Defense Against the Dark Arts job (or its equivalent) at the Ilvermorny School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. With that spirit, you just know she’s in Wampus.
How cool would it be if Rowling wrote it in and make Warren’s professorship canon? Since the Ministry of Magic had offices dedicated to muggle affairs and a relationship with the Prime Minister, it’s not far-fetched that the MACUSA (the Magical Congress of the United States of America) has something similar going on with the No-Maj world. Senator Warren could totally teach magic on the side, stepping out periodically to the peaks of Mount Greylock to work at “one of the most democratic, least elitist of all the great wizarding schools.”
This wonderful list from Buzzfeed of presidential candidates as Hogwarts characters characterized Warren as Minerva McGonagall, which I’m also equally fine with—because if anyone can beat the Defense Against the Dark Arts curse, it’s Elizabeth Warren.
