Hillary Clinton still leads in polls for 2016

May 15, 2013

It’s nice to know you have a lock before even breaking out of the gate, am I right?

The fact that democrats are backing Hillary Clinton for a 2016 presidential run is hardly a news flash, but there’s something to be said for the candidate who hasn’t said peep about the White House and gets nothing but the most devout endorsements from heads of state. Even as boob tubers remain highly misinformed about a “scandal” that looms on air waves with her name attached, Clinton is continued to be thought of as one of the strongest, most intelligent movers and shakers to cut through Washington in the past 20 years.

Even members of the White House press corps who followed Bill Clinton in the ’90s have roundly speculated that the president would often defer to his first lady on policymaking, and, to no surprise, the love fest continues in the polls and Beltway. A Public Policy Poll released Wednesday that shows 63 percent of Democrats still vying for Clinton to represent the party in the 2016 president race.

Want more love? U.S. Senate majority leader Harry Reid told reporters on Wednesday that if Hillary Clinton “wants to run for President, she’s going to get that nomination.” Reid also added that the Benghazi hearings are “just a sideshow,” a last ditch effort from the opposing party to discredit Clinton before she enjoys semi-retirement and writing her $8 million memoir for Simon & Schuster.

Earlier this month, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi gave a holy endorsement to the former secretary of state at an event in Arkansas. “I pray that Hillary Clinton decides to run for president of the United States,” she told attendees. “Nobody has been first lady and senator and now secretary of state. Putting everything aside that she is a woman, she’d be the best qualified person that we’ve seen.”
