Whomever is elected in 2008 is going to be on the hook for an even worse economic crisis and bad period of time in US citizens.

Both 2008 candidates have promised the public they will fix the economy quickly.

Ain't gonna happen - so 2012 is going to be an open free-for-all with the incumbent president a lame duck whose own party will not support him.

It would be best for Hillary if McCain won in one respect in that she could run against him.

But if McCain wins, a lot of the Democrats will blame the loss on Hillary not doing enough to win the race for Obama.

Exactly. I've lately contended that whomever loses this round is actually the more fortunate one.

The only thing with a shorter duration than Americans' patience, is their memory-- they'll blame Bush et al for a while, but more than a year or so into the next POTUS' administration, that blame is going to shift. I'm no Greenspan, but I really don't see how any policy implementations can turn this ship back to a late-90s feel in that time span, or even 4 yrs.

Technically yes, although it would split the party significantly and most likely lead to a loss for the dems.

No, no and no.
It's rare for a sitting President to be challenged in their parties Primary when running for a 2nd. term. In 2016, she will be too old. Let's face it, our society judges old women harsher than old men. The fact that 52% of the US public doesn't like her plus she would almost be 70 years old at that point.
2008 was really the only year Hillary Clinton could have done it.
In 2012, Obama will be running for re-election.

Still she is not that old in 2016. 68? She can still do it. Even Mccain is 73 now.

Possible for her to run as an independent candidate? Or maybe she can switch to the republicans? :D

I believe last week that she said she doubts she would ever try to run for President again, that 2008 was her best opportunity. Hillary will always be tainted by the serious personal behavior (especially sexual) of Bill, including the impeachment proceedings and so on.

She is best off continuing to be critical US Senator from a major state (NY) and becoming an important point person to push the policies of the Obama administration (assuming he wins).

No independent party candidate can ever, ever win. . . it's just US politics. And switching to the Republican party would be disastrous and the Republicans would never in a million years select her as their nominee.

Whoever wins this year (AP poll suggests Obama has a 1 point lead over McCain, so anything is possible) is going to have a rough term and reelection will be hard to seek, especially all the hype given to Obama (if he wins of course  Wink )

If Obama loses, I would expect she would run again in 2012, she still has a very loyal following of supporters and Bill is just itching to get back to the White House in any which way.

If Obams wins, that will be it for her presidential aspirations, she is not going to go against the party and challenge him for re-election in 2012.

Any chance for Mccain to catchup now? Hard?

Very True. All one needs to do is look at the 1980 Primary Campaign when Sen. Ted Kennedy challenged then-President Jimmy Carter right up to the DNC Convention.

IMHO, that's one lesson that the Democrats learned very well (which was one reason WHY then-Senator Bill Bradley (of NJ) did NOT challenge then-President Bill Clinton in 1996)... at least on the Presidential level.

Personal take:

If McCain wins, she'll make another run in 2012; remember, at one point, she said that she wouldn't run for President in 2008... so never say never.

If Obama wins, I believe that she will be nominated for the first Supreme Court vacancy. A position, by design, that she'll retain long after Obama leaves office. I personally think that that promise may have very well been already made.

She was quoted recently as saying no, but she also stated she had no intentions of running for President when she ran for Senate Eight years ago so who knows.

Quoting RFields5421 (Reply 2):

She will not challenge her own party's incumbant unless Obama turns out to be an even bigger disastor than GW Bush.

Quoting United Airline (Reply 6):

Again unless Obama does something criminal there's no chance she will challenge him for the Democratic nomination, there is a possibility that she could replace Biden as Vice President in Obama's second term. That would set her up for her own run in 2016, but again does she want to be doing that at 68?.. It's totally within the realm of possibilities that Palin will seek the Republican nomination in 2012, if she gets it adding Hilary to the Obama ticket would be a good way to make a play for Woman voters.

Again who knows what's going to happen, she's healthy but Bill Clinton has had bi-pass surgery. I'm not sure he will be up for supporting her campaign, or the scrutiny.

Quoting United Airline (Reply 11):

She is the Democratic party.

Quoting United Airline (Reply 17):

Anything is possible, but if the polls are showing the same next week that they are showing now (Obama with a nine point lead on average) then I think it will be a large victory for Obama,

Already President Abraham Lincoln said, in his time in regard to General Grant, that the "Presidential Worm" is an incureable disease, and stated that Grant had it in spite of denial. And I think Hillary HAS that Worm-disease !

No, but I thought she was smart enough to not run in 2008. She fooled me.

Quoting STT757 (Reply 19):

Obama does not have to turn out to be a disaster.

I see very few people here remember 1968, or 1980.

The winner of this election - and I'm assuming Obama - could very easily be in a position like LBJ was in late 67-early 68 - and have a crippled presidency with no chance of re-election.

Declining to run and allowing someone else to carry the party banner will be the best way out.

The 1990 comparison is even more likely for Obama. Not only will the winner face a tougher economic climate than Carter faced, but an unpopular war they cannot win. Though it is very slightly possible the person winning in 2008 might have the US troops out of Iraq by early 2012 - they will not be out of Afghanistan.

The biggest mistake Carter made was coming to Washington with a message of change,and actually fighting against his own party in Congress to try to implement that change. That PO'd the democratic party powerful against Carter. And many, many of them supported Kennedy's run against Carter.

While it is a popular myth about how much Reagan's message accepted by the American people - it is seldom mentioned how much the divisive primary campaign hurt the Democratic party ability to organize and contest the November election.

You think this year's primaries were long and drawn out - they were nothing compared to 1990.

Obama's central theme of Change is very much like Carter's campaign theme. It is not original, many of the statements and rally cries are direct from the 1976 election near word for word.

If Obama actually tries to implement his public stand on change, he's going to lose that battle, and could very well not be able to run for re-election. That's just the battle within his own party - not even considering the economy, loss of jobs, possible deep depression, and the war.

Now in reality - I think Obama will win in 2008, and run for re-election and lose in 2012, because the voters and the Democratic party will not support the president who is responsible for NOT ending the war, and responsible for the worst economy, unemployment and job losses since 1929-32 - possibly even worse.

But if Obama is realistic and realized he cannot win re-election, does not run - then Hillary may well be the best candidate for the Democrats.

"But that's just my opinion, I could be wrong."

Sorry for going off-topic,

WunalaYann, no offense my friend, but you don't need to be an Economist to see how far down the shithole our economy is in.

No matter who wins the election, it will take a loooong time for our economy to show some recovery. Four years won't be enough and unfortunately taxes will have to go up among other things.
