Why Hillary Clinton Might Want to Run

Mitchell, Lincoln A.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has not yet determined whether not she will run for president in 2016. Clinton has clearly wanted to be president for years, is well qualified for the position and is currently one of the most popular politicians in the country. However, she also may be ready for a change after spending the last 20 years in the public spotlight. Additionally, questions about her health could come up during the campaign. While it cannot yet be known if Clinton will seek her party's nomination in 2016, it is reasonably clear that if she runs, she will be the strong favorite for the Democratic nomination and have a good chance of beating any Republican opponent in the general election.
