What are the chances/odds she will?
She'll wait her turn, even if it means Sarah at the helm for 4.
I do believe that, while they don't necessarily like Obama, he's been a good enough boy for the money behind the Democrats to give him the nod, and Hillary is a good li'l democrat. She'll wait.
I wonder if anyone is going to challenge Obama from within?
No. Her entry would split the party. I would not be surprised if she ran as VP in 2012; setting the stage for a 2016 run.
This is likely, except for the historical obscurity of the office of VP - She has a little more lime in the light of the world stage as Secretary of State.
I used to think so, now not so much.
Not ruling out 2016, however.
Hillary is a shrewd politician. She will drop out as Secretary of State and be given some other prestigious position. She will wait till 2016 and see what the political climate looks like
I think if everyone were to beg her to she might reconsider. Lord knows she has more leadership in her little finger then Obama has in his whole body. But I think she's fed up with the mess he's made of everything. So I think she'll be content to give speeches and publish her memoirs.
I don't think she will although she has bigger balls than Obama.
The only dem I would vote for is Jim Webb. He won't run either. I believe him when he says that politics is not for him.
I see 2012 as a repeat of 1968 when a President with a socialist political agenda involved the USA in an unpopular war, and quit running his election campaign after the first primary, and the Democratic party fractured
The problem with Hillary would be: If the Dem's suffered a similar fracture, which splinter would she belong? IMHO as Sec of State, she is too tightly associated with Obama to be the leader of an anti-Obama movement withing the party.
Who else is?
I don't think the Dems have a George Wallace, raging against integration (or illegal immigration)
They don't have a McCarthy (intellectuals against the wars)
They certainly have no Robert Kennedy....however, Hillary, being the wife (rather than brother) of a popular ex Prez...might substitute.
