Hillary-Michelle in 2016? For many people, this headline is frightening. Others find it appealing. Hillary Clinton's name has popped up in conversation from time to time as many believe that the former secretary of state will indeed run for president in 2016. People haven't been talking too much about who Hillary would run with but today, there's a major name coming forward that many are familiar with: Michelle Obama. On March 13, the Washington Examiner reported that a Hillary-Michelle could be possible.
"All due respect for President Obama and Vice President Biden, but that would truly be a dream team for America. Both women are proven effective leaders who've raise children, so dealing with Congress would be a snap!" said former Clinton spokeswoman Karen Finney.
Hillary-Michelle in 2016 is already appearing on bumper stickers according to the report. The idea of a "first first lady" ticket is something very real and it has people talking today. Many feel that it's only a matter of time before a woman runs for president of the United States -- and maybe it's only a matter of time before a woman takes the helm as commander in chief. Will that be Hillary Clinton? That remains to be seen.
"More than anything else, this reflects the growing awareness that it is time for the glass ceiling of the last old boys club to be firmly shattered," said Democratic strategist Chris Lehane.
Is a Hillary-Michelle in 2016 ticket something you'd welcome?
