Prediction: Hillary will not run, simply because for one of two reasons, by 2016, she will either have health issues or focus her new title: grandmother.
Health issues? Maybe.
Grandmother? No way. Any grandkids would be useful stage props in her quest for power.
I’m not convinced she won’t run, but I am convinced that Chelsea will have a precisely timed pregnancy to coincide with the 2016 election. And, the corrupt MSM will be on pins and needles detailing every single crumb of information on Chelsea’s pregnancy — similar to Kate Middletons. Bank on it!
In fact, if Chelsea could time it so she has the baby the day or week before the election would not surprise me one bit. With the Clintons, absolutely nothing is wasted when it comes to advancing their political interests, no person, no event, nothing.
The grandmother thing is what she'd like to soften her image as the venomous shrew that she is. That won't stop her from running at all.
Indeed. Hillary will be 69 in 2016. Practically a septuagenarian. The years haven't been kind to her. By the time the next election rolls around, she'll look like death warmed over. She's not far from that now.
She's also been on the national stage for far too long. She's had as long a career as some of the longest serving congress critters. They can get away with staying in gov't service that long because we don't often see or hear about most of them. Hillary, on the other hand, has been in the news nearly every month since 1992. That has created a certain fatigue factor on the part of the public. Americans don't do 'royalty' all that well.
Another Freeper called her the "Kim Kardashian of American politics". In other words, she's famous for being famous. She has no real accomplishments to recommend her to the office of President.
If Hillary were an up-and-coming young Democrat Senator, bursting with newness and fresh ideas, she might have a chance, but she's everything but that.
