    Hillary was, and is, imminently qualified to be President of the United States. She just had really unfortunate timing 5 years ago to have to run against BO. Come on, that was an epic dual between the two and certainly made BO a better candidate. Now I agree that it was sad at the end of the primaries as she and Bill kind of took the low road and her handling of the Iraq war vote and her not taking responsibility for it cost her. But her 4 years as SOS has only burnished her image and credentials. And as much as she represents PBO policy, just being Hillary Rodam Clinton lent more weight to US policy. That said I think the repubs are concern trolling. They would love to run against her and hyper-ventilate every little issue with her. From Whitewater, V Foster, to more recently Benghazi and her health. Sad to say I think her time has come and gone. She could have very easily been the first female president and I think she may have a tough time letting that go. I also don`t think it will be Joe Biden though. He too has had his chances and couldn`t seal the deal. in 2013 a  73 year old candidate is a liability to the ticket (see J McCain). There are a lot of good young potential Dem candidates out there, lets give some new names a chance.

    Politics is like driving.... (D) forward, (R) reverse.
