Well, according to the media, for 2016. But Hillary does not need to be associated with Obama in my opinion. She is popular on her own and now has foreign policy experience under her belt. Just wonder if she has been asked and told them no to the delight of Bill.

I'm not certain Hillary would run.

She'll be getting up there in age. She'd be 72 by the end of her first term.

I do hope she runs though. I wish she had won the nomination in 08.

I don't think its going to be close to be honest.
Romney isn't as likable as Obama to Joe Voter.

Obama will harp on Romney being part of the evil rich.

Sadly.



Obama isn't as well liked as he was the first time around. He didn't have any record to get pinged on in 2008, now he does.

It will be closer imo, with Romney winning a couple of states that Obama won in 2008 (NC and Indiana definitely, and maybe Florida), but in the end, Obama will likely win.

Several reports out this morning that she turned down the VP job which was offered by Valerie Jarrett a couple weeks back. Also, reports that she and Pres differ quite substantially on foreign policy issues.

There were also "reports" for years, and even practical guarantees by forum members (meat) that Biden would be ditched in favor of Clinton.

It's wishful thinking, that's all.

What I think is funny is that the people who hate Obama are the same people who hated Bush and every other president before him.

there is no reason for obama to switch biden and clinton and the only people i've heard suggesting this are dedicated fox news watchers so i'm not really counting on it

Hillary indicated in January that she was ready to retire from public life. She will likely stay on as SoS only long enough for her replacement to be selected if President Obama is reelected.

There has been some speculation that she is just taking time off to gear up for another run at the Presidency in 2016.

There is no political benefit for her to be VP.

While there is still time for an unforeseen event to change the outcome of the election, as it stands now, President Obama will win a second term in a close race. The GOP will retain the House with a smaller majority and the Senate is up for grabs.

The obstructionist strategy of the GOP will continue in the second term, putting their party before our country, little if any meaningful legislation will be passed and our economy will continue to sputter along. Eventually, global confidence in the poorly regulated financial markets will tank once again, making 2008 look like a walk in the park.

Just a few weeks back, "landslide" win was being passed around here like a bad cold. Now we say "narrow" win for Obama? Like I said, do not put stock in July polling. Stay tuned.
