Will Hillary run?

Time: "It has been like this for months now. Clinton, who claims not to have decided about another presidential run in 2016, has been traveling the country delivering speeches on her own record and current events that sound a lot like precursors to campaign rhetoric. The fact that she is not officially running has not stopped her from testing out themes on the stump, while positioning herself against her likely Republican opponents. The examples show up on both sides of the Atlantic, in paid speeches, at awards dinners, rallies and fundraisers."

I think Hillary Clinton will run again for president because she believes she can win. She is also well known and many people liked her husband Bill Clinton as a previous president. These are big reasons why I think she will run for president.

Kelsey Cybell said...

I think that she will run. She is a prominent figure with obvious connections- her husband is Bill Clinton, after all. She is the current Secretary of State, and was the first female Senator of New York. As First Lady, she's done work with healthcare, and has also worked to protect women and children's rights.

If she does run, she will most likely work on similar issues. I truly hope that she does run. It would be fantastic to have a female president; it would be even better if it was Hillary Clinton.

I believe Hillary Clinton will run for president. I don't think she would be taking all of her time giving speeches to the people and then not run; it would just be a waste of time otherwise. Also, since she is currently the Secretary of State and has played a role in healthcare before, I feel as if those things would help her out if she ran. Another reason why I think she might run is because of her husband Bill, and how well known of a president he was. She has many different positive reasons to run for president, also including becoming the first female president, so I believe she will surely take a stab at it.

I think that Hilary Clinton will run for president. She is a prominent figure in the Democratic party that will have many people lined up to vote for her. Since she was once first lady when her husband, Bill Clinton, was in office and is now the nation's Secretary of State, Hilary has the experience needed to run the White House. Also, she will earn the votes of many women who would love to have her be the first woman running the nation from the oval office. In my opinion, I think Hilary will run and will have a fighting chance at winning the presidency in the next election.

I think Hillary Clinton will run for president because she has much experience in the political and Democratic system. She played a role in the healthcare area which would also help her out in the election. Also, her husband, bill clinton was a very liked president in the past which would help her out too. Although she is a woman, she has made big strides for the good such as protecting women's rights. I do feel that she will be looked down because she is a female as president, even though this is not right.

Rachel Schroeder said...

I think that Mrs. Clinton will run. She ran in the last election and lost the democratic vote. Since then she has done a lot as the Secretary of State. She also did many things back when her husband was the President and she was the first lady. If she ran for office I believe that she would get the democratic party nomination not only because she could possibly be the first female president, but also because she has the background knowledge and the drive to be a great leader.

Jessica Klamecki said...

I think Hillary Clinton will run for President because she already has a lot of experience when she was the first lady. Now would also be he perfect time for her to run because people are more open to having a minority in the presidential office.

Brandon Bhatti said...

I think that Hilary Clinton will run for president because she is the Secretary of State and knows what it takes. She has already been in elections and her husband Bill Clinton was an important president. She has a major reason to run; to become the first woman president.

Donald Carpenter said...

I think Hillary Clinton will probably run in 2016. She will immediately be the front runner and has a huge fundraising advantage. She will likely win the election unless the Obama administration is doing terribly and it is a REALLY bad year for the Democratic Party. She came close in 2008 and I don't think she wants to pass up her last big opportunity to leave a political legacy.

I think it's quite likely that she would run. I mean she ran in the last Democratic National Convention, to be the party nominee. I believe that she was the runner up in that primary as well. She also has a distinct advantage being the, potential, first women president. She's been all over the White House for years so she won't be a dark horse. I would be surprised if she would lose the primary, but it has happened before.

Tom Schneider said...

I think she will run. She tried before and will most likely try again. She has a chance because of the fact that she could be the first woman president. I believe she is staying in the eye of the media so she can run. If she wasn't going to run, she would have said no, but because she has not said anything, then she most likely will be running.

Ian Hintz said...

I believe Hillary Clinton will be running again in the next election. Currently she is laying the ground work by making speeches and getting her name out there. I think she announce her candidacy soon; however, I think she is waiting for a large Democratic win. When the Obama Health reform is longer delayed she might decide to make her decision public. Until then she will continue traveling and giving public speeches.

Amy Rothwell said...

Judging from her actions as stated by Time, I believe that it is very likely that Hilary Clinton will run for the presidency. She seems to be setting herself up early by traveling around the country and delivering speeches, almost as if she wants to ensure her position as the Democratic nominee. Her position as Secretary of State combined with past political experience, a well-known name, and ties to a previous president (her husband Bill), make her a likely candidate.

Erika Baldwin said...

I also think Hillary Clinton will run, largely because of all that is in favor of her doing so. As stated, she has the notoriety, from being the Secretary of State, a previous First Lady, etc. These positions have not only made her prominent, but experienced in politics. She also has experience in campaigning from her campaign to get the democratic nominee for the 2008 election. And I think the fact that she is currently "testing out themes" is a good indication that she will run.

Bri Bulski said...

I don't think that Hillary Clinton will run for president in 2016 for a few reasons. First and foremost, she said to Barbara Walters in 2012"I really don't beleive I'll run for president again". Second, I think the Benghazi scandal has stained her political career too much, and she knows that. It would be used against her constantly if she ran.

Bryce Anderson said...

I think Hillary Clinton will run for President in the 2016 presidential election. Not only do i think she is going to run for president, but I truly believe that she will not drop out until the end but then not make it. The idea of having the first female president is quite ambiguous in my view.

Tori Navarro said...

I believe that Hillary Clinton will run for run for president because she is gaining confidence by doing traveling the country and delivery speeches. These will only boost her popularity and cause her to believe that she will gain more votes in an election. She is just observing now, what issues need to be focused on. She used to be first lady and She is also the current secretary of state, which gives her an advantage.

Jared Baldwin said...

I think Hillary Clinton will run again for president in 2016. She already ran in the democratic convention in 2012. Also, she has taken in the role of secretary of state, so she has had major responsibility already. In addition, her husband was already president which could make her want to become the next president as well.

Noah Golden said...

I think Hillary Clinton will run for president. I think she will be able to get enough funds, and she is going to start early on that. The electoral college is already slanted toward the democratic party. I also think Bill Clinton will help her greatly. The Republican side also has a weak bench as of right now.

KyleThurow said...

I think that she will without a doubt run. She has made herself a prime leader in the democratic party and could get the support of the party if she can get past the brutal primary process. I think with the end of Obama's serving political career there will be an opening that many leading democrats will want to take. I expect to see a very personal and brutal fight in the democrats presidential primary that could end up giving a strong republican presidential runner a good shot at winning the election.

Mitchell Kwapick said...

I think Hillary will run. She is a very well known and well respected politician in the country. She would have a lot of backing from both her party and the female population. She knows very well the power that she already has because of her history and her abilities. I think because of all this, she will run for president in 2016

Mike Vidmar said...

I believe Hillary Clinton will run for president because she is really involved in the government and politics. She Secretary of State and knows what it takes to be high up in the government. Also her husband Bill was a good president most people would say, which will help her. Lastly she would make history, being the first female president in the U.S.A.

Kelsee York said...

I think Hillary Clinton will again run for President in the upcoming election. I believe right now she is testing the waters to see whether she would have enough support to become a viable candidate. She has experience from running in the last election, as well as from being the first lady to Bill Clinton. Finally, she is a respected politician who has a lot of support within the nation.

Jon Ceccato said...

Hillary Clinton will run for president in 2016. I believe she will because she is currently Secretary of State. She also is giving speeches so that would be a waste of time if she wouldn't run. And finally her husband was a president, which could only benefit her in an election.

Allie Krumrai said...

I think that Hilary Clinton will run for the 2016 elections because she has continued to be involved with the government by going and delivering speeches all over the world. Even though she may not have decided yet the chances of her running again are very likely if she continues to give speeches in other countries.

Nick Berger said...

I think HIllary Clinton will run for president. Reportedly her friends have told News that she wants to, and she would have a huge advantage with her obvious connections. After her 2008 defeat; she still was involved in politics. I think she still holds a large amount of her support base from 2008, and is ready to continue her political journey.

Anna Aiuppa said...

I believe that Hillary Clinton will run for president again in the next election because her current political actions seem to be setting her up for a future presidential campaign. She definitely is not slowing down in her political career, and maybe she's just getting started. In a speech two weeks ago at a convention in Atlanta, Clinton discussed the 2011 raid of Osama bin Laden's compound, and she clearly positioned herself against the weak stance of Biden. While tearing down Biden, she built up the strength of herself and Leon Panetta, former CIA director. I don't think she would be doing all of this just to make herself a topic of conversation. She has a plan.

Becca Penn said...

I believe that it is definitely a possibility that Hillary will run because she has plenty of political experience required for the position as president. Since she has already been a First Lady, she has had first hand experience in the White House. She may win the votes because of her work to protect the rights of children and women. Hillary is a well-known politician that could have a good chance in the presidential election because of her experience.

Justin Myers said...

I believe Hillary Clinton will run again. She has made a reputation for herself over the years which will be beneficial to her. The fact that her husband, Bill Clinton, was president would also be helpful if she ran for president.

Jacob arndt said...

I believe she will run again because over the years as our secretary of state she has gained the respects of many of the United States citizens. She has done this by speaking to other countries and trying to make them an ally of our country, and by helping U.S. companies win business over seas. By doing these things and many others, I believe she could be a very successful presidential candidate for the 2016 election.

Michael Lafferty said...

Hillary Clinton said in her most recent interview that she does have some interest because friends and family have told her that she should run for president. she also said that she will not look to far into the subject just yet. she will be doing that next year. In my opinion I believe she will run for president. she has been making speeches gathering followers and when she runs for president she will have a large group already behind her.

Keely Smith said...

I believe that Hillary will run for president again. She is an active participant in the government and has gained the respect of many United States citizens. She also has had experience in the White House when she was the First Lady. Hillary is a highly respected politician with a plan that will help her win the presidential election in the future.

Leah Henriksen said...

I think it's possible she would run. Now that we have experienced our first black president, I think there will be a trend for "firsts" in politics. She is an extremely well-known female politician, and even if her ideas might be skewed she could easily be accepted and supported.

abigail wallace said...

I believe that she will run for the 2016 election because she is dedicated. She has been putting in extra amounts of effort to make her point. Also, she is a popular politician that whatever she tries to do, she will make a wide statement to the country.

CharissaDahl said...

I think Hillary Clinton will run for president in 2016 because she is a confidant lady and really has a love for our country. She has many advantages being well know because of her husband and because of her positions in the government and also for running previously . I think that many people will appreciate her for hard work and detication, and for the fact that she would be the first woman president. That would be a big change for the US. However, she has not been victorious in years past with the presidential election, so I think it will be interesting to see what happens when 2016 comes around.

Paul Kremer said...

I think that Hilary will run because now that president Obama has had his two terms she has the most attention of any of the Democratic party candidates. Also she came close to winning last election and in the mean time has gotten some more political experience under her belt.

Justin Jezuit said...

I believe Hilary Clinton will run for president. She has been involved in our government for many years. Also, she has already been in office as the first lady. That being said I would expect to see her run in the future.

Cameron Palmer said...

I believe she will, Hillary had a decent chance last time she ran in 2008 yet Obama still won the party's nomination. This coming election Hillary stands a strong chance of winning the party's nomination as well as winning the presidency. The biggest question is if America is ready for it. After the birthers of Obama's election, who knows what the argument will be against Hillary.

Kaitlyn LeMay said...

It seems as though the people today like to have minorities and diversity throughout the office. Because Hillary already has a lot of experience- since she was the first lady, that gives her a fair advantage to have a possibility at becoming elected.

Jonathan Aiuppa said...

It appears as though hillary will run for president in 2016. Breaking the ice with running for democratic nominee in 2008, she has already put her foot in the door. Her speeches and placement in recent speeches and advertisments are her road to the presidential election

Tony Lopez said...

With all of the time Hillary has spent around elections already, this gives her an advantage of knowing what to expect out of voters, and what issues voters would like to see changed. With all of this information I think it would be a great chance for Hillary to run and potentially become the first women president of the United States. With the drastic change of having the first African American president in office, I think it would not surprise anyone if a women president, maybe Hillary, would be elected into office soon in the upcoming years.
