Warren later pressed by CNN reporter MJ Lee�on whether she saw her placement on a stage separate from Biden and Sanders as a missed opportunity, said�she was "glad for everybody to have a chance to talk about what they want to do, their vision for how they see this country going forward."

The move will deprive Warren, whose�campaign has been gaining momentum, from getting a chance to directly hit Biden and Sanders.

Still, the placement could give her a platform to�highlight�her policy proposals and stand out on the debate stage. Warren's strategy of diving deep into her policy ideas appears to have propelled her further upward in the crowded Democratic pack, allowing her to differentiate herself from Sanders, who is also seen as a progressive leader.�
