Hillary Clinton for President in 2016? As she steps down as Secretary of State all she wants to do is sleep


Hillary Clinton, Secretary of State, will she run for president in 2016?

Will Hillary run in 2016? It’s the question that her most ardent supporters have been asking themselves since 2008.

According to The New York Times, Politico reported that Public Policy Polling had determined that if the Iowa caucuses were held last week Clinton would get 58 percent of the vote. Joe Biden raked in 17 percent.

It’s not as if she hasn’t read the tea leaves herself. In fact, she says, every day strangers come up and tell her she has an obligation to run and become the nation’s first woman president.

‘Oh, I’ve ruled it out, but you know me,’ she tells the Times. ‘Everybody keeps asking me. So I keep ruling it out and being asked.’

What she has not done, supporters and critics note, is rule it out

Right now she’d rather list all the things she won’t do when she’s no longer secretary of state.

‘I am so looking forward to next year,’ she told the Times. ‘I just want to sleep and exercise and travel for fun. And relax. It sounds so ordinary, but I haven’t done it for 20 years. I would like to see whether I can get untired. I work out and stuff, but I don’t do it enough and I don’t do it hard enough because I can’t expend that much energy on it.’

At 65, you can’t deny her the impulse to relax a bit. But it’s highly unlikely she will for long.

But there is the matter of her history to consider too. If Hillary Clinton ran for president again, the Times observes, she would probably be the best-prepared candidate in American history. She has lived in the White House, she has served in the United States Senate, she knows virtually every head of state in the world. She’s more than ready.
