Obviously, I’ve proven repeatedly that there’s nothing I love more than a good “Hillary 2016″ rumor. New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand got the buzz started again, but she’s only the first to sound the call now.
The latest is coming from one of the best sources out there — former President Bill Clinton. If the Secretary of State should choose to run, it appears she has one ardent supporter already. “It’s entirely up to her,” Clinton told “Good Morning America” of ABC News. “I believe that she’s being absolutely honest with you when she says she doesn’t think she’ll go back into politics. But if she comes home and we do this foundation stuff for the rest of our lives, I’ll be happy; if she changes her mind and decides to run, I’ll be happy.”
But Mr. Hillary Clinton isn’t the only one who would be “happy” with a 2016 run. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is eager to see it happen. “I would love to see Secretary Clinton become the nominee for President in 2016…I do think the Secretary should entertain the thought of running in 2016…Hasn’t she been a magnificent Secretary of State?”
Probably less eager to see her run? Current Vice President Joe Biden. Although he said he’d “make up his mind later,” it’s pretty clear that 2016 is already on his mind.
