“She’s running, but she doesn’t know it yet,” a close friend of Clinton’s recently told New York Magazine. It’s like a force of history. It’s inexorable, it’s gravitational. I think she actually believes she has more say in it than she actually does.”
Hillary Rodham Clinton recently sat down with New York Magazine for their probing cover story, “Hillary, In Between,” which details what Clinton’s been up to since leaving her position as Secretary Of State under President Obama. Rumors have been swirling, claiming that Clinton is ready to try her hand at the presidency again, after once losing to Obama. And those rumors have now been backed by people who are close to Clinton.
“She’s doing a very Clintonian thing. In her mind, she’s running for it, and she’s also convinced herself she hasn’t made up her mind. She’s going to run for president. It’s a foregone conclusion,” another longtime friend of Clinton revealed to New York Magazine.
#TeamBeautiful is actually hoping that this political genius runs for president. We’ve all been pondering having our first woman president since President Obama was re-elected into his second term.

Clinton admitted that she does wrestle with running for president, but maintains that with three years to go, the decision isn’t anywhere close to being made. “I think it’s a serious decision, not to be made lightly, but it’s also one that has to be made soon.”
Because some of the people close to the former Secretary or State have said otherwise, we’re using our deductive logic to come up with this conclusion Hillary Clinton will run for president in 2016 and here’s how we know.
1. Clinton Hasn’t Exactly Said She Wouldn’t
“This election is more than three years away, and I just don’t think it’s good for the country,” she said. “It’s like when you meet somebody at a party and they look over your shoulder to see who else is there, and you want to talk to them about something that’s really important; in fact, maybe you came to the party to talk to that particular person, and they just want to know what’s next. I feel like that’s our political process right now. I just don’t think it is good.” Does that sound like a simple, “No” to you?
2. Clinton’s Big Break
Clinton has been quoted several times saying that she wants to take some time off to just “chill.” “I’d like to see whether I could get untired,” Clinton’s said of her much-anticipated vacation. Policymic is reporting a very different reasoning behind HIllary’s break–which has nothing to do with rest. “But perhaps the real reason for Hillary’s timely resignation is that it’s hard to campaign for president when you’re secretary of state. There are restrictions on fundraising and partisan activities for the nation’s top diplomat, and these types of activities for a 2016 presidential campaign would need to begin fairly soon.”
3. Practice Makes Perfect
Clinton has learned from the mistakes she made when she previously attempted to run in 2008.”She doesn’t repeat her mistakes,” says Melanne Verveer, an aide to the First Lady who then served in the State Department as Hillary’s ambassador-at-large for global women’s issues. “She really learns from her mistakes.”
In fact, Clinton has said, “I’ve had a unique, close and personal front-row seat. And I think these last four years have certainly deepened and broadened my understanding of the challenges and the opportunities we face in the world today.”
Sounds like someone we know and love is prepping to run for president! We support you HIllary!
