Longtime Clinton family political advisor James Carville isn’t counting Secretary Hillary Clinton out of the 2016 presidential race. “I always assume that if people run, they will run again,” says Carville, equating presidential bids to itches that can’t be scratched away.Has he seen Hillary lately? The last four years have not been kind to her and she's not going to get any better looking in the next four. Age is taking its toll and if the Dems don't have anybody stronger than her to challenge President Romney they've got real problems.
But he dismisses talk that President Obama will dump Vice President Joe Biden for Clinton in a a long rumored move to shore up support among progressive Democrats.
“For average Democrats, if they dump Biden for Hillary, they won’t like that.”
Seriously, I think she'll be too old to be a viable candidate (sorry, but men can get away with age better than most women), and if Romney wins this year she won't want to go up against a sitting president.
Her best chance at president after 2008 was to challenge the very weak Obama this year. She didn't do it and I think retirement will be her only option.
