  •  She has an image of a woman consumed by ambition (0+ / 0-)

    While some have dinged her for it, that image has given hope to some of us who are looking to her for hope --

    to me, I think she could be the Democratic Margaret Thatcher, someone tough who could help the D brand dominate for just as long as Thatcher's party did in the UK.

    •  If you're looking for an ambitious woman... (0+ / 0-)

      I'd say Sen. Gillibrand, who is younger and less tainted by a partisan reputation (fair or otherwise), is the better bet. I really do think Secy. Clinton is tired of all politics, all the time; Gillibrand is less of a retread, she's an up-and-comer, and she plays well on camera.

      •  We also have to remember that she is also (0+ / 0-)

        the most popular politician in country now. Many people would love to see her run in 2016. Of course I believe she's tired and wants out, but come 2015 (if there isn't a woman in the field) I could see her entering.
