As 2016 draws near, the key speculation concerning Hillary Clinton has evolved
from, "Will Hillary Clinton run in 2016," to "Who will be Hillary Clinton's running mate in 2016?"
In 2016 Hillary Clinton will be 69 years old so the lingering question about her
age does remain. But Ronald Reagan was also 69 years old when he became
president a generation ago when life expectancy was lower than it is today.
When she runs in 2016, Hillary Clinton will be not only the former First Lady
and the former U.S. Senator from New York, but also the former
Secretary of State. She will be the pre-eminent
favorite to win the Democratic nomination, propelled by her loyal army of
feminist supporters, many of whom feel that she was robbed of the nomination
and the presidency in 2008 (see Obama religion).
Joe Biden is
the sitting Vice President. But at the end of the current term, he will be 74
years old, older than John McCain was when he sought the presidency in 2008,
and considered too old for the presidency.
On social issues,
America in 2016 also will be a friendlier campaigning ground for her
than it was in 2008. Universal healthcare will be firmly in place, as will the support for
homosexual marriage even among non-Democrats (see
Bible verses about homosexuality).
Unless the economy crumbles before 2016 and the Democrats are blamed for it (see
America's national debt), the
former First Lady will have a strong chance of becoming the first female president of the United States.
If so and even with her husband and former President helping her, she
will not be able to turn our nation around (see Christian
But she will appoint liberal justices to the U.S. Supreme Court
during 4, possibly 8 more years, and continue to promote her liberal social
including abortion and
Unless her social platform shifts toward the
God, our rating of her candidacy
will remain a D+.
