At the moment, I doubt Hilary is going to run. She's pretty well exhausted by globe-trotting as Secretary of State. As far as I'm concerned, she did a great job as SoS and deserves some rest.

She will resign as Secretary of State. Yes, she is exhausted. But more to the point, you can't be SoS and Run at the same time. Logically and ethically impossible. So she resigned, takes two years to "think about it", and should she decide to get back in (she will be 70, within days of the same age as Reagan when he got the job), it's hers for the asking.

Hubby Bill can raise millions with ease, she has the credentials, and except for the rabid Right, people actually like her.

By the time four years passes, the Right wing temper tantrum around Christie may have softened. (Remember how Limbaugh told everyone Mitt Romney was going to be the worst possible choice?) If so (and some of that will depend on 2014) Christie has a reasonable shot at the title. The Pubs have many other potential candidates, though, but none of the higher order as the Dems have with Hillary. I'd say Christie and maybe Jeb Bush are the two biggest for the Republicans, Hillary alone for the Dems (although they, too, have many second-tier possibles.
