Should Hillary run? (Photo by CSIS.)

Will Hillary Clinton run for president in 2016? She’s given no indication that she will — in fact, she’s said very clearly that she won’t — but that isn’t stopping rampant speculation. (No wonder, as we’re all sick to death of talking about Mitt Romney’s dog and Rick Santorum’s vajihad.)

Political journalist and Game Change coauthor John Heilemann last week predicted there’s a 99.4 percent chance she’ll run. New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd argued that Clinton is just the tough broad we need to lead the resistance against the “war on women.” Former New York City Mayor Ed Koch personally encouraged Clinton to get into the race during last week’s state dinner at the White House. Democratic strategist and Clinton family friend James Carville suggested that she might not be able to resist the urge to run.
