Pelosi: Hillary Clinton's 'Our Shot' in 2016

(CNN) – House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi kept the “Hillary Clinton for president in 2016” refrain alive in an interview published Sunday.

“Why wouldn’t she run? She’s a magnificent secretary of state,” Pelosi told the San Francisco Chronicle when asked about Clinton’s 2016 ambitions. “She’s our shot.”

The Democratic congresswoman and former House speaker similarly stoked the flames in April, describing the prospect as “so exciting.”

Clinton, the former first lady and New York senator, has consistently shot down speculation of a future political run, saying her current State Department post will be her last in public office. But her insistence has done little to quell the rumors.

Former President Clinton on Thursday left the door ajar to a 2016 run by his daughter, Chelsea, or wife, Hillary, saying, “we will just see.”

I guess if you do enough recreational drugs you could probably come up with a few reasons why you think Hillary would make a good president.

Chelsea has an impressive resume of being on TV a couple of times.

She hangs out with Gwyneth Paltrow. If she is spotted with Bono, we know she's serious.

Is Bill Clinton’s mind going? He’s suggesting that his daughter could run for president in 2016?? Really??? He’s really drawing an equivalence between Hillary and Chelsea as potential presidential candidates???? And nobody will call him out on the absurdity of that?????

We laugh at the prospect of Chelsea being president. But I’m not sure it can’t happen. Sickening, but possible.

How old is Chelsea? Heck, she has about the same amount of experience as Obama did.

Chelsea could indeed become President.

Senator Alvin Greene told me so.

If Romney wins this... and then messes up... and things get worse... we could very well end up with Hillary in 2016.

We need to back away from the North Korean model of succession and try to return to elections based on superior qualifications.

I thought that Hitlery and SanFranNan didn’t like each other. You know, there’s only room for one queen bee in the liberal hive.

The fact is that the likely hood of Romney not doing better than Obama is slight. We have gotten out of economic messes many times in the past. They are always done the same way: Reduced taxes and regulation along with government cut backs. Harding new it, Coolidge new it, Reagan new it, hell even Bush drove unemployment down to below 5% with some of the same plans.

It is not rocket science, it is willingness to take on the leviathan of DC taxing & spending culture.

She strikes me as though she is trying to be her mother. I think she has had surgery done, and it appears the surgery was fashioned to make her look as much like Hillary as possible. The expression on her face is clearly Hillary’s. I wonder if they have turned her into a Hillary clone because they think that she can run for President and people will blur her together with Hillary in their minds. Poor girl needs to get an identity of her own.

Hillary’s tenure as Sec State has been a quite failure. Then again, it’s kinda hard to fail more visibly then Obama.

What this is about is saying something nice about Hillary to try and energize her supporters a bit for the upcoming election. Get them out of the ‘I told you so’ mode they are probably in.

Manipulation is the name of the game here, folks, and it is time to scrape the bottom of the barrel.

We need a law... members of a presidential family can’t be president.

NO MORE BUSHES, NO MORE CLINTONS, NO MORE OBAMAS.

Our country needs a 4 generation break before presidential family members can run for pres.

Hillary would have been 100 percent better than Obama. Obama is the worst we could have picked besides Carter and Nixon. Of course after we picked Romney, we have a disaster on our hands anyway. Both parties suck!!!!

Web Hubbel’s daughter can no more win an office that John Kennedy’s daughter. Both are as dumb and unqualified as is possible.
