Clinton 2016 Kickoff?

Yesterday Bill Clinton is pushed into conceding that Hillary might make a good candidate for President four years from now.

After insisting he doesn’t know her plans and praising other Democratic hopefuls, he finally admits,

“I know I’m biased, but I think she demonstrated as senator and as secretary of state that she has extraordinary ability, a lot of common sense, a lot of, you know, stick-to-itiveness. She’ll push a rock up a hill as long as it takes to get it up the hill...whatever she decides, I’ll support it.”

Today at the Clinton Global Initiative, the Secretary of State teases the audience with a few words about international income distribution:

“One of the issues that I have been preaching about around the world is collecting taxes in an equitable manner, especially from the elites in every country.

Drawing laughter and applause, she adds, “You know, I’m out of American politics, but it is a fact that around the world, the elites of every country are making money.

“There are rich people everywhere. And yet they do not contribute to the growth of their own countries. They don’t invest in public schools, public hospitals, in other kinds of development internally.”

At the Global Initiative, both contenders pay Clinton court while Romney jokes about a “Clinton bounce” of his own by just showing up.

With the former President now the star of this year’s campaign and Chelsea contemplating a political career, the Clintons show signs of becoming a dynasty to rival the Kennedys and the Bushes.

So, we could have Clinton v. Bush 2016 (Hillary v. Jeb)?
