If Clinton Runs In 2016, She Should Get The Fun Out Of Her System Now

It’s been long speculated that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will make a comeback and run for president in 2016, and “Game Change” authors Mark Halperin and John Heilemann, who worked on the 2008 election trail, are confident Clinton will fight the good fight once again in four years.
During a Wednesday episode of “Morning Joe,” Willie Geist asked the writers what the odds were that Clinton would seek office in 2016.
“99.4 [percent chance],” Heilemann said. “I think very high.”
Halperin was slightly less optimistic about the notion, but said it’s a reasonable expectation nonetheless.
“A little lower,” Halperin said. “I think that if Joe Biden wins [the vice presidential] reelection and runs, she’s much less likely to run.”
The former first lady has said that she has no plans to run for president in the future, but given all the recent political drama on contraception and women’s reproductive rights, a woman in office might be just what females need to believe their needs will be met. Clinton also paved the way for former presidential candidate Michele Bachmann to run, so she has already broken the ice for women and would hopefully have more confidence the second time around.
If she does decide to give the presidential seat another shot as many suspect, she should have her fun now and humor Jason Segel by starring alongside him in a movie while she still can (and use it as an opportunity to one-up her husband for comedy appearances).
