Cuomo is the big star right now, having just signed in gay marriage law and is a rising person in the democratic party.

Clinton is another big name, and if anyone is going to be the first female president, odds are it would be her before anybody else that comes to mind.

im not saying ill vote for either one, but i think they will be serious candidates for 2016.

I think Hilary will be too old to run in 2016, but that's just me. Although if she does run, don't be surprised to see her step down as Sec of State after Obama's first time. She hasn't been shy in saying that the job is a beating with the travel and endless dignitary BS involved with the job. My bold prediction is that if she does resign John Kerry will be the next Sec of State.

I disagree with that. Hillary has extremely high approval ratings for the way she has handled her job. I could see her, if she chooses to run, resigning her position near the 2014 midterms, but not after 2012.

Kerry would make a fantastic Sec State.

I agree with her age being against her as well as she has indicated, or actually said: she has no interest in remaining in politics after 2012. I know a lot of people say that, but I take her for her word on this one. I don't think people understand how tiring constant travel can be. This is one of the reasons I bring up Paul's age so often. I know this is highjacking the thread, but I just wanted to claify this.

You are confusing high approval ratings with how she feels about her job and about politics.

Note how I said "if she chooses to run for president"

I don't actually think she will.

ok, I see what you are saying. Yes, she does have high numbers and she would make a good showing..I think 2008 took a lot out of her.

My prediction is she won't step down, she'll be asked to leave by the Republican president.

While I likely wouldn't vote for him, Cuomo. He's the governor of my state and isn't doing bad at all.
