Bill Hillary 2016: Democrats Want Clintons Back in Office

While many potential presidential candidates for the 2016 race are saying it is too early to say if they will be running, many Democrats are already clamoring for a double Clinton ticket.

Bill Clinton can't run for president again, but he can run for vice president as his wife runs for president. 

Though rumors about Hillary Clinton running in 2016 have been speculated ever since the 2012 election ended, this is the first time people are seriously wondering about a Bill Hillary combo. 

Bill, however, has said that it is not worth thinking about right now.

"That is the worst expenditure of our time," he said at the 2013 Fiscal Summit. 

He said Hillary is not thinking about 2016 right now, and is instead focusing on doing work for the Clinton Foundation. She just finished a book and is "having a little fun being a private citizen for the first time in 20 years."

Bill did say that he hopes politicians in Washington will work on issues like the national debt so that whoever is president in 2016 has an easier road.

But if Bill and Hillary did decide to run in 2016, they may come out ahead, as a recent poll from Quinnipiac University found that Hillary would defeat any Republican challengers. They matched her numbers up with potential Republican candidates, like Chris Christie, and she beat out all of them. 

"Former secretary of state Hillary Clinton would start a 2016 presidential campaign with enormous advantages," the polling institute's assistant director Peter Brown said. "She obviously is by far the best known, and her more than 20 years in the public spotlight allows her to create a very favorable impression on the American people."

While the Bill Hillary 2016 run has many Democrats excited, it could make a divided Democratic party once they get into the primaries. It is likely that Vice President Joe Biden will run, making fans of Obama and fans of the Clintons pit against each other.
