This early, the presidential election in the United States in 2016 is already swamped with many speculations. Of course the predicted presidential candidates from the two camps – GOP and Democratic parties enjoy the attention. Looking at how various politicians try to posture themselves to be noticed by the electorate, one cannot help but laugh at the seeming comedy of it all.
Hillary Clinton as strong bet
Hillary Clinton did not make it to the Democrat Party nomination when she pitted against President Barack Obama in 2008. Nevertheless, Clinton demonstrated gracious acceptance of defeat by lending her full support, along with her husband former President Bill Clinton, to the candidacy of Obama. When Obama took his seat at the Capitol, Clinton was appointed as State Secretary and has remained actively involved in national governance to date, although no longer in public office. Today, she is being branded as the strongest contender for the presidency in 2016. The possibility is very clear, but the question now is – whether or not her fellow Democrats would field her unanimously.
Most political analysts believe that Hillary Clinton is overdue for the presidential seat. Opinions in political forums speak in unison about how Clinton should have won the nomination in 2008. But that is beside the point now. The real issue here is the figures in the nominations. Granting that surveys are credible enough – the 82% votes that Clinton gained from her party members is a resounding approval for her bid in three years time. Now we can see the streaming of her supporters from every state when the actual campaign begins. Some will even travel to convention venues to see her address the people. It could be expensive for ordinary people to travel just to see Hillary Clinton, but according to some groups, they are ready to jump into Daniel Tosh Tour for cheaper flights. Such loyal support is indeed remarkable.
At this point it may be too early to predict as to Clinton’s opponent in the 2016 race will be. Yet no matter who it is going to be, the former senator and state secretary will certainly see a lot of action during her campaign trail.
