Former Pennsylvania Governor and Democratic National Committee Chairman Ed Rendell says Hillary Clinton will be the party’s presidential nominee in 2016.

hillary clinton ed rendell 2016Rendell told the New York Post that New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who has frequently been mentioned as a Democratic presidential candidate in 2016, “should look elsewhere” because “it’s going to be Hillary Clinton in 2016.

“Andrew and everybody else will be running for vice president.”

But Rendell, who backed Clinton over Barack Obama for president in 2008, noted that Cuomo could be ineligible to serve as vice president if Clinton wins the White House because experts believe the Constitution’s 12th Amendment restricts Electoral College members from voting for a president and vice president from the same state.

Secretary of State Clinton and Cuomo both live in Westchester County.
Several Democrats, including former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown J., have mentioned Cuomo as a possible replacement for Joe Biden as Obama’s running mate in 2012.

Meanwhile at least one prominent Democrat disagrees with Rendell’s assessment and says Hillary won’t run for president in 2016.

Former New York City Mayor Ed Koch told Newsmax recently: “She won’t run for president. She’s looking to be president of a world body, something like the World Bank. That’s where she sees her future.”

Late last year Clinton said her Secretary of State post would be her “last public position.”
