She has said she didn't want to serve a second term. The Atlantic has speculation about who might replace her...

Hillary

Hillary should resign, take a deep breath, and a moderately reasonable vacation to recharge and relax. She's earned it.

Then she needs to get to work on her 2016 Presidential campaign. Her time is coming soon, but standing at the door and walking through it are two different things. Hillary in 2016.

Stop this drumbeat for her in

Stop this drumbeat for her in 2016. I just don't see the appeal policy wise. She's just left of Lindsey Graham.

It's not the policy appeal.

It's not the policy appeal. It's the Bubba-through-the-back-door appeal.

Not me. I can't stand Bill Clinton. Another neo-con/neo-lib.

Not defending it. But I think that's the prevailing logic.

I agree to the sentiment to "stop this drumbeat for her in 2016." Although, for a different reason. I would vote for Hillary. I just think she should take time to enjoy herself and do good things as is Bill through philanthropy.

Sweet revenge?

Ha!

That would be hilarious, but I don't think there's any way it could happen.

While I think she would make

While I think she would make an excellent president, I think she is going to keep to her word and stay out of it. I think that once she lives State that she will enjoy the slower pace, and will write and focus her energies on areas where she can make a difference. I think she will enjoy being more private because she has always disliked the intrusion into her life that public service has brought.

Replacement

My bet is on John Kerry as SOS.

I agree. Knows his Israel and knows how to shut down the stupid in front of Congress.

Mine too. Hillary leaves in

Mine too. Hillary leaves in January and Kerry gets the nod. No problems with his Senate seat; Deval Patrick is a Democrat.

If Hillary runs in 2016, I'll vote for her (unless an awfully good alternative presents itself and I can't think of one at the moment).

Elizabeth Warren?

She's fantastic but I don't think she'll be ready for President in 2016. Might end up in a Democratic cabinet, tho.

Still don't agree. She's not the candidate Obama was.

And neither is Hillary. Lot so negatives.

People like dynasties and

People like dynasties and easy-to-follow narratives too much. I don't want to see anyone named Clinton, Bush, Kennedy or even Obama running in 2016. In a county of over 300 million people, can't we be more creative than automatically looking to people who already think of the White House as the family homestead?

That is exactly why...

...I didn't vote for Hilary in 2008. I liked her, but I couldn't bear to see only two families control the White House for 24 (or even 28) years.

Well......

In a county of over 300 million people, can't we be more creative than automatically looking to people who already think of the White House as the family homestead?

If more than thirty percent of us had a job that actually provided a decent living, I would wholeheartedly endorse your premise. But the reality is, most of us are just hoping the payroll department isn't going to screw up and the doctors office is going to get the insurance filing right.

It sucks to be middle class now, because you spend all your time chasing nickels to stay there.
