Seen as the frontrunner for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination, Clinton, 66, has remained coy on speculation of whether she would make another White House bid, after losing out to her fellow Democrat, Obama, in 2008.
She told the audience in Mexico City that she likely would make a decision after Jan. 1, 2015.
“I do have a unique vantage point and set of experiences about what makes the United States operate well and what doesn’t, and what a president can do and should be doing,” Clinton said.(WHBL – Sheboygan, Wisc.)
I’m of two minds here on HRC’s comments…on the one hand, as I said in the opening of the post, at least we now know to expect an announcement on whether she runs in 2016 or not. On the other hand, this effectively freezes the field on the Democratic field because if she runs, odds are she starts as the presumptive nominee, which wouldn’t bode well for whoever’s brave enough to challenge her.
