Why Clinton 2016 Speculaton Won't Die

Paul Begala notes the speculation that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will run for president in four years has only intensified in the months since she declared she wouldn't run.

It helps that she's required to stay out of electoral politics.

"Hillary benefits from the fact that the job is designed to be above the political fray; she hasn't had to comment on, say, gay marriage or the Trayvon Martin case. It's a paradox Hillary must understand: the less political you are, the more popular a politician you become; the less you yearn for the presidency, the more the country yearns for you."
