I voted No because I expect another recession to begin in the U.S. sometime between 2018 and 2020, which in turn will result in Hillary Clinton either losing reelection in 2020 or not seeking reelection in the first place. After all, an economy can't keep growing non-stop forever.

Lol......it's probably less than 50/50 that she will even live to see 2020.

She's old and unhealthy, not exactly a good combo.

No, as I expect her to not run in 2020, due to age.

Hillary Clinton's mother lived to her early 90s, though; thus, Hillary herself might live to a ripe old age as well.

And yet Ronald Reagan was over a decade older than Hillary Clinton currently is when he left office. Likewise, John McCain (in November 2008) and Bob Dole (in November 1996) were both older than Hillary Clinton will be in November 2016.

I don't see why not. If elected, Mrs. Clinton can be expected to expand the welfare state considerably as far as the number of recipients who will be looking forward in the subsequent election to preserve or expand their gains.

I can't see the Republicans doing an about face and suddenly changing their tune and competing for this vote in any meaningful way on such short notice. People most usually vote their own pocketbooks, and the GOP song and dance about keeping taxes reasonable just doesn't resonate with the increasing number of people who don't pay taxes.

I suppose that health concerns might add up to her leaving.

But her record will still be the topic of consideration for the 2020 voters, even if her name isn't on the ballot.

No, not due to defeat but rather her declining to run for a second term ... assuming she even wins in 2016.

It all depends on how the GOP handles the same-sex marriage decision this year and over the next five years. Their reaction will likely doom them in 2016, but if they move on from the issue they might have a shot in 2020. If they continue to beat that dead horse, then yes, Hillary will win re-election in 2020.
