Hillary Clinton will be 69 years old in 2016. She's not running and Democrats' chances of keeping the White House are better off without her.

She has aged 20 years under the Obama admin. Who can blame her? She would have made a better president than the "community organizer" for sure.

She'll crush anyone the repubs hack up as a candidate.

She has done everything to keep the option open to running in 2016. I believe she will run.

That this unscrupulous, self-promoting woman is considered a viable presidential candidate is a sad commentary on the current state of the Democratic Party. That she probably would have made a better president than Obama is even sadder.

During the Clinton years, she was directly involved in many of the scandals that marked this as the most scandal-ridden administration in U.S. history. Her arrogance and and condescending treatment of White House staff and Secret Service agents caused her to be one of the most unpopular First Ladies in history.

With zero qualification, she entered political office by carpet-bagging her way to a New York senate seat, even though the Clintons had never lived there. In the Senate, she cemented her reputation as a pure political opportunist by supporting the invasion of Iraq and then turning against it only when it became politically expedient to do so.

She's now embroiled in the Benghazi scandal, having pushed the lie that it was all about the video. True to form, she's content to let her subordinates take the fall while she's conveniently out of the country to avoid testimony on Capitol Hill.

If Hillary is the best that the Democrats can offer, this country is indeed in deep trouble.

Lets hope her next act is retirement, she will be as old as my grandma in 2016.

"Hillary Clinton will be 69 years old in 2016. "................Ronald Reagan was 70 when elected. Besides, women tend to live longer. One thing for sure: no other man or woman would have the sheer wealth of international experience and diplomatic skill set that she does. I'd love to see her run with Booker or Deval. I'd also like to see her luxuriate in time off, rejuvenate and write a book. Compared to being SOS, being president might be less stressful.
