    and if Hillary doesn't run then a shot at Prez as well... though I think probably a lesser one. But I think he would have a very good shot at being picked as Hillary's VP.

    So... he's got some tough figuring to do. Where does he want to go and what are his best odds of getting there? He's got plenty of future... which one does he want to pick?

      in 2014, he can run for Prez in 2016.   As Senator, he would have access to donors and a media platform to test a Prez run in 2016.  If he fails in 2016 as a Prez, he could be Hillary's or any Dem nominiee's VP candidate.  He knows how to combat the Rethugs.  That's his biggest asset on a campaign trail.

      in the interim, because he'll be out of elected office for four years come 2016 otherwise.  And Sec Clinton will have been out of Government for four years - I don't know if Dems could have a ticket where both were out of public office for the four years previous.  

      Now if he was Senator Schweitzer, he'd be right at the top of the list with Sen Warner as ideal running mates for Clinton.
