This is interesting.
“Game Change” authors Mark Halperin and John Heilemann appeared on MSNBC’s morning blab show Morning Joe on Wednesday and both predicted there is a high probability that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will run for president in 2016.
“What are the odds this morning that Hillary Clinton for president in 2016?” asked co-host Willie Geist.
“99.4%,” said Heilemann. “I think very high.”
“A little lower,” added Halperin. “I think that if Joe Biden wins reelection and runs, she’s much less likely to run.”
The conversation took place in the context of a New York Times piece by Maureen Dowd titled “Don’t Tread On Us,” which argued Hillary Clinton would be a stronger presidential candidate on women’s issues than is Obama.
