Will Hillary Clinton Consider a Run in the 2016 Presidential Election?
By Emily Roehler, Weekend Meteorologist - bio | email
The election is still years away but that doesn't stop the speculation on who will, or won't, be running in the presidential race in 2016.
So who are the biggest names on the list? That question will likely be asked many times before the 2016 presidential campaign.
Six months after leaving the Obama Administration, Hillary Clinton is back in the spotlight.
The former Secretary of State spoke to the American Bar Association last night in San Francisco, the first in a series of public policy speeches she'll deliver over the coming months focusing on voting rights and racial discrimination.
"Anyone who says racial discrimination is no longer a problem in American elections must not be paying attention," said Clinton.
Next month in Philadelphia, Clinton will weigh in on transparency and national security, including the recently controversial NSA surveillance programs.
Clinton has been very selective in her public appearances since leaving the State Department. These speeches guarantee she'll stay in the political headlines and ensure the 2016 questions will continue to swirl.
Adding more fuel to the fire of that speculation is the wife of, disgraced New York City mayoral candidate, Anthony Weiner.
Weiner's wife Huma is one of Clinton's closest aides and last night he weighed in on what she may be doing for a potential Clinton campaign.
Weiner may be jumping the gun, as Clinton has not announced her intentions for 2016, but these upcoming public appearances could be laying the ground work for a presidential run.
