Clever, but I don't see that happening. One of them, maybe, both not likely for many reasons.

A lot of Democrats think Hillary will give it another shot, but I don't.

Mrs. Clinton is a very smart woman. She will be leaving the State Department as one of the greatest Secretaries ever, and surely is the finest of the 21st century thus far. Her admirable efforts have put her in the same league as Cyrus Vance and James Baker, both stellar Secretaries who still remain widely respected. This is a mighty high pedestal, and one that is not easily tarnished by the common events of politics.

She and her husband are now at the very top of their party influence and power as well. I firmly believe that Hillary will prefer to stay out of Washington when she retires as Sec. of State. Her ambitions are better served in the private sector now, rather than the public sector, and she will no longer be required to meet the physical and mental rigors of high officialdom.

For sure, she is very tired now; I don't expect her to be very much in the public eye for about a year, but the woman has a lot of stamina. I could well be wrong about everything, but my gut tells me I'm right.

Whether it's Democrat or Republican, we don't need another Bush or another Clinton in the White House. We need fresh blood ... not another relative or spouse of a previous President. We already made that mistake with G.W. Bush, and he had one of the worst approval ratings of any President when he left office.

Even though Hillary is smart & has lots of experience, Democrats should not make the mistake of nominating her. Another Clinton at the helm doesn't necessarily mean a repeat of Bill Clinton. Hillary is quite a bit more liberal than her husband, and even has socialist tendencies just like Obama. When she ran in 2008, she stated she wanted to give something like $5,000 to every newborn child. Uggghhh!

You were certainly wrong on this entire post, how do you make this crap up?

Ya think? I guess we will both see soon enough who is wrong or right. If I'm wrong in my conjecture, I'm not afraid to admit to it. How about you?

Watch Corey Booker. I don't know if he'll be ready in 4 years, but he will be ready eventually.

Booker needs to be something other than a mayor first.

There's the New Jersey statehouse, but given the boost to Chris Christie by Hurricane Sandy I'm guessing that Booker passes on the matchup and runs for Senate in 2014 (Lautenberg will be 90 that year, so he probably won't run again).

As such, I suspect 2016 will simply be too soon for Booker. But he certainly does appear to be one of the Democratic Party's rising stars.

Booker will still be too "wet behind the ears" in 2016. I truly believe Deval Partick has a much better shot. Like Obama, he would be able to motivate minority voters.
