SHOULD HILLARY RUN NEXT TIME?

Hillary Clinton is soaring these days.  Both her worldwide influence and her domestic popularity are at an all-time peak.

Today Mrs. Clinton, 64, is being touted as a shoo-in for the 2016 democratic presidential nomination.  (Or to replace Joe Biden later this year.)

If Hillary were nominated in 2016, she would be very hard to beat.  As of now she is one of the most popular women in the United States.

Should Hillary run next time?

What do you think?

    I think that she would be a fabulous Vice President. I’m not sure about the Presidency…she would be 68 by then. I think “her ship has sailed”.
    Neil-If Obama wins again, would he name her as VP? What do you know about their relationship? I saw what I thought was a brief snub of her when he came into a something-something & greeted the crowd awhile ago.Also, I would think the only reason she has stuck with “bad-boy Bill” is keeping up appearances for her future political career.
    Mentioning appearances-she’s looked pretty dishevelled lately-She needs a stylist…badly. OMG-my mean streak is coming out!

    My info is that the relationship between Obama and Hillary is one of warmth aNd respect. He could not name her vice-president after the election but he could nominate her to replace Joe Biden before the election.

    All the campaign-related data I receive indicates Biden is the VP candidate. VP is an awful job. She is doing well as Secretary of State. I think she might be too old to run the next time around.

    “Too old?” Reagan was older than she will be when he was first elected, and Harrison was the same age. Reagan served two terms, and I’m sure Hilary would be smart enough not to catch her death of pneumonia. She’s healthy and vital, and that’s what counts. Not chronological age.

    Veep is a go-nowhere-fast job. Right now, she’s in the news every week, doing something high-profile. I’m sure Joe is a good guy, but when do we ever hear about what he’s doing? Hilary would do better to stay high-profile and active until 2016, and then take a run at the presidency!

    It’s true, Ron was older, but he was an actor and he “acted” younger. :-)

    I like Hilary Clinton, but she’s not ageing very well, and I don’t think that she has “the horses”.
    I agree that she is a great Secretary of State and was a great Senator, both mediocre posts compared to the Presidency.

    Will Obama win it again?

    Ronald Reagan may have been older, but he also lapsed into senility during his second term. Not a great situation. The Presidency is a job that ages the person occupying it — note how much Obama has aged.

    Obama has aged as did G. Bush-Noticeably. Tough job and I think 68+ is too old. I am a young 69, but I have limitations I didn’t have 10 years ago. Dang!
