What if Hillary Clinton Doesn't Run?

Politico: "Democrats openly describe their surprise at seeing such consensus around a candidate so early. The hope of retaining the White House in an open-seat election is very real -- and the letdown that will set in among Democratic activists and operatives will be very deep if Clinton takes a pass on a campaign, as she may well do."

"She has said she has yet to make up her mind, but few in the party believe that. The Clintons' ambition and the chance to make history as the first female president, they figure, will overpower any reticence about another grueling campaign or spending her golden years carrying the burdens of the world's weightiest job."

"But if they're wrong, there is no obvious replacement. And the party would be looking at a mad scramble to fill the Clinton void."
