Hillary Supporters Start Pushing For 2016
Aaron Blake 06/04/2012
Those close to Hillary Clinton are starting to openly speculate that the secretary of state will run for president again in 2016.
The growing crew of speculators now includes three big ones: House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), former Pennsylvania governor Ed Rendell and former president Bill Clinton himself.
The question is whether this amounts to wishful thinking on behalf of Hillary backers still unsatisfied by (or bitter about) 2008, or an indication that she is actually considering another run for president. Clinton herself has shunned talk of another bid. She has said she wont serve another term as secretary of state if President Obama is reelected and suggested that the first female president wont be her.
I would like to come back to India and just wander around without the streets being closed, she said during a speech in India last month. I just want to get back to taking some deep breaths, feeling that there are other ways I can continue to serve.
Pelosi and Rendell have been the strongest in their advocacy. Both said in reports this weekend that they expect that Clinton will dust off her campaign for another go at it four years from now, when the secretary of state will turn 69 just days before Election Day.

After an Obama shellacking, the party is going to turn back to the DLC crowd. It will likely be good old Evan Bayh from Indiana, or Warner from Virginia....outside chance of Cuomo from NY if that state doesn’t tank.
Your subtitle says it all.
If Obama loses, he would be eligible to run again in 2016.
John Edwards' acquittal could be trouble for Hillary--now he can run in 2016.
Then there is always Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
After a HOMOPOTUS these last few years, I don’t want a DYKE for prez.
The use of “ridden hard” when describing h clintoon almost makes me vomit. What an incredibly disgustuing image.
