    but if Hillary chooses to run in 2016, she will have my vote.  She has proven herself in so many capacities.  In 2008, I felt Obama had the better chance of winning the general election, simply because the Clintons carried some baggage which the GOP would have used against her.  She's definitely qualified!

      and Clinton was my 2nd least favorite of the candidates then, behind only Richardson.  If she ran in 2016, though, I might prefer Schweitzer, but would support her.

        . . . but I have a feeling that, if Hillary chooses to run, she'll have the field all to herself. And I'm all in favor of that if it means that Andrew Cuomo will not be our nominee! I supported Obama in 2008 (I was hoping Gore would jump in, but he obviously didn't), for two reasons: Hillary's vote to authorize the Iraq war, and my disdain for dynastic politics. At this point, I would say that Hillary has proven herself on the world stage, and is much more qualified than she was in 2008. Furthermore, as I stated above, the thought of a President Cuomo . . . no. Just, no.

          To get a clear field. I still think there's the possibility Joe Biden runs and if that's the case it'll probably be just those two. But if he doesn't, I think you still see people like O'Malley or Mark Warner who would ostensibly be running for VP.
