    contenders if she announces. I'm still hesitant to be certain she'll run, however. Part of me thinks she won't choose to subject herself to it again.

    Unless we're in another economic meltdown in 2016, I would have to make her the favorite to win over any Republican.

    If not Clinton, then I've no idea who will get the nod. Cuomo will likely be the establishment favorite with the money and institutional backing. I'm not to thrilled with that prospect.

    Warren, Gillibrand, Feingold and Sanders aren't running. There's no reason to keep putting their names in.

    That's all assuming Biden doesn't run, and honestly I am skeptical he will. Age will be a big factor. If he does, it will only be if Clinton doesn't. And if that's the case, then I'd have to think he'd be as heavily-favored as Gore was in 2000 to win the nomination. But winning in November will be a different story, and I think it would be tough for him to beat some of the top-tier Republicans.
