I would love to see her win in 2016. At the same time, I think she has lots of soul-searching to do. I'm sure she is well-aware of that and has already begun mulling things over, probably in earnest.

Now that she's stepped down from being SOS, there's going to be some deceleration....some "letting out of the air," so to speak. And that's very richly deserved. Since the start of 2009, she's visited 102 nations and flown an astounding 843,839 miles: that's about 34 times around the globe. She was the 1st SOS to visit Laos in 57 years and the 1st to go to Burma since the 1950's. Her off-the-chart popularity is undoubtedly due to her perception as tireless.

That may be a popular perception, but another grueling presidential run would be reality. She's older now than when she ran against Obama, and let's be real here: she's had a health scare. Underneath that bravado and return to Work-aholism, there had to be some sense of vulnerability.

The Clintons' mega-wealth is well-known. If you'd like to see a rundown of one of her own personal financial disclosure statements, here you are:

No, Hillary, it's time for you to relax and make some funny money....

Hillary Clinton isn't going to be hurting for money, thanks to speaking fees of more $200,000 per appearance, according to a source familiar with the situation. The fee will be more than Clinton's annual salary as Secretary of State, which was $186,000. Politico reported Monday that Clinton would hit the speaking circuit this spring, and that "Secretary Clinton will likely do some speeches for no fee for causes she champions, and expects to occasionally donate her fees for charitable purposes."
