  •  anyone who is 100% sure is a fool. (8+ / 0-)

    But it is my belief that she will run.

    ...better the occasional faults of a government that lives in a spirit of charity, than the consistent omissions of a government frozen in the ice of its own indifference. -FDR, 1936

    •  I'm in this boat (4+ / 0-)

      It isn't a sure thing, but I'd say it's more likely than unlikely she runs at this point.

      Nothing that hasnt't happened yet is 100%. I'd say it's 85-90% likely that Hillary runs.

      •  I'm still of the exact opposite view (5+ / 0-)

        I think all this stuff is really not much at all.  I think she doesn't want to run and is 85%-90% unlikely.  I have no doubt she would love to be President, but I don't think she wants to run for President.  Those are two different things.

        Hillary just strikes me as someone who is happy never having to set an alarm on her clock ever again.

        I'm torn on whether I'd want her to run.  On one hand, she's a perfectly fine generic Democrat in her politics, she'd be the first woman and we should have that, and on paper she's a likely winner and extremely tough for Rs to beat.

        On the other hand, I hate the company she keeps, and that to this day as far as I know she thinks the Iraq War was a good idea but just badly executed.  Those are things I'd like to see changed.

          We're talking about Hillary Clinton here.

          Hillary just strikes me as someone who is happy never having to set an alarm on her clock ever again.
          I think you're thinking of someone who doesn't have massive ambition and a relentless work ethic. Hilary Swank, maybe?
