Hillary 2016 Rumors Start Again

Hillary 2016 Rumors Start Again

It’s taken an enormous amount of effort to finally squelch the rumors that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton would somehow challenge President Barack Obama for the 2012 nomination, or be switched into the Vice Presidential slot in lieu of current V.P. Joe Biden in order to up reelection prospects. But despite all of the speculation from political pundits, Clinton has said repeatedly that as of 2012 she is retiring from politics.

Yet, once again, presidential rumors are flying — this time about 2016.

The authors of the movie “Game Change” believe that Clinton is on the verge of taking the plunge once the next four years are up — especially if Biden doesn’t run. One even gave odds at 99.4 percent that she would mount a campaign.

But they didn’t start the 2016 speculation. That was columnist Maureen Dowd, who stated that Clinton would be the perfect candidate for women to rally around after Republicans have been treading on their rights for years. “Women who assumed that electing Obama would lift all minority boats are beginning to think: Maybe hes not enough. If the desire of these conservative male leaders to yoke women is this close to the surface, if they are perversely driven to debase women even though it could lead to their own political demise, then women may require more than Obama. If women are so vulnerable, they may need one of their own. Is she inevitable?”

I sure would vote for her too. I voted for her in the primaries against Obama and would vote for her again.

4:55PM PDT on Mar 18, 2012

I would vote for her, I would campaign for her, I would tell EVERYONE I came in contact with why they should vote for her. I agree with other posters that she would most certainly do a better job of running the country than just about any man alive.

She's got my vote

I would support Ms. Clinton whole-heartedly; I realize the good work she's done is indicative of the work she would do if appointed to the presidency either as VP or President.

You know, I didn't support her before but I think she has done a great job in recent years... I would vote for her.

Poor Past Member...his other bad personality is coming out today. The nice one, Dr. Jeckyl Past Member post great posts...can spell, etc. Mr. Hyde Past Member spews stuff like a child...doesn't know how to spell.

Must be terrible having a dual personality...ya know, like Sybil?!?

I'm a political independent but I would have voted for her - she's the only political candidate in recent memory who has a higher level of intelligence, integrity, guts, and character. Even when Bill dragged her through the mud she maintained her dignity and never resorted to mean-spiritedness or being a victim - she has EARNED what it takes to be a REAL leader. But she has dedicated most of her life to public service and deserves a break from it all to have a life of her own - wish she was 20 years younger.

I caucused for Hill over Obama so she would definitely have my vote! GO HILLARY!!! :-)
