Jon Huntsman would be a great candidate, but sorry to say it won't happen.

I think she'll win easily but she's not really "likable" in person like Bill, Obama, W Bush, etc. I can't find it right now but there's a video from the 2007 campaign where her and Bill are at a fair. Bill was talking to everyone, making people laugh, telling stories...while Hillary was kinda just in the background looking stand offish.

Plenty to choose from...
None electable, as no one on the list could win critical Blue Wall EC votes. Pre bidgegate, Christie could win NJ.

The GOP needs to develop Blue Wall Republican nominees without baggage.

A lot can happen between now and 2016. Most people thought Hillary was a shoe-in back in '08. She may look at a Republican led House and Senate, the full implementation of Obamacare, a renewed threat from Islamic extremists and decide she is happier earning big bucks on the speaking circuit. The Clintons are nothing if not politically savvy. They may decide the best way to preserve their image is to stay out of the political turmoil that will engulf the next president.

Agree. People seem to have forgotten all the "Hillary is inevitable" talk back in 2007 and it just didn't happen. She is likely still undecided at this point and I'm not at all convinced that she will run in 2016.

Staying out of the race may protect the Clinton brand and even pave the way for Chelsea if she decides to run for office one day down the road.

They also said George W. Bush was unelectable...

"Undecided"?

Hillary has been running for president since 1992.

Some are so fixed on Hillary they just can't see past her running and winning. They have also forgotten in 2008 the nation was told, by almost every media outlet, even Fox. that the GOP was dead or dying.; then 2010 showed up and so did the party. There is just no way to predict what will happen in another year or two. The way scandals keep popping up daily anyone might win or the most probably candidates may be a thing of the past.
