Hillary Clinton 'tuned' for 2016 Presidency?

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton may not want to replace Vice President Joe Biden, but she may still want to succeed President Barack Obama, her old advisers have said.


Washington, Oct 7: US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton may not want to replace Vice President Joe Biden, but she may still want to succeed President Barack Obama, her old advisers have said.

"Stay tuned for 2016," The Politico quoted one of her 2008 campaign's topmost figures, as saying.

Meanwhile, when asked about Hillary's prospects, James Carville, Bill Clinton's former campaign manager, said: "Once you run for president you always want to be president. My a*sumption is that once you've run you're going to run again."

"Running for President is like having sex: you don't do it once and forget about it. It has a high, high recidivism rate," he added.

The idea of a 2012 Obama-Clinton ticket and 2016 Presidency had surfaced because of the remarks made by noted author-cum-journalist Bob Woodward.

Promoting his book "Obama Wars" on CNN Tuesday night, CNN's John King asked Woodward about the rumour that Obama would do a switch and make Clinton his running mate instead of Biden.

"It's on the table," Woodward replied.

"And some of Hillary Clinton's advisers see it as a real possibility in 2012. President Obama needs some of the women, Latinos, retirees that she did so well with during the 2008 primaries. So they switch jobs and not out of the question," he added.

Woodward also suggested that the real focus of the US Secretary of State is 2016.

"Hillary Clinton could run in her own right in 2016 and be younger than Ronald Reagan when he was elected president," he said.

However, Hillary denied the 'Vice President-switch' speculations, and said: "I have absolutely no interest and no reason for doing anything other than just dismissing these stories and moving on."

"I think the Vice President is doing a wonderful job. He's a great friend of mine. We work together closely," she added.
